Discussion Guidelines:

This discussion is worth 25 points, and requires an initial post and one response  post to a peer, with references. Both the initial and response posts are due on the same day. Reference all sources you’ve cited within your answers at the end of your narrative.  

Do not write a formal paper with title and reference pages.  However, use headings to delineate sections of your narrative that speak to the question(s). Be brief, yet concise, when answering the questions and include citations to support your statements.  

The Canvas discussion platform does not lend itself to setting up your narrative to APA formatting in regards to margins and indentations.  However, you are required to comply with APA in regards to all other components, i.e., grammar, spelling, complete sentences, proper use of headings, correct citations and reference sequencing and use of capitalization and italics.

Do not upload a document, if you do so this will not be graded.  You may copy and paste a prepared written submission. 

Initial Post: *500 word minimum.

Be sure to use  the correct 4 part method discussed in Bastable, pg.472 – 473, including the table on pg. 474. Remember that goals are broad and long term. Your objectives should be directly related to your course/project/presentation and be measurable. (Ex: How many items do you want the attendee or participant to identify, or what are the specific steps you would like them to demonstrate?).  Select your objective verbs carefully so that you will be able to evaluate the objectives easily in your project setting. Please see the HPPP assignment for some additional instruction and suggestions for how to write objectives. (4 points)
