Week 1 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Science in 21st Century American Culture
Reflecting on your own experiences as well as on the weekly readings, evaluate the role of science in 21st-century American culture. Which influences the other more: science or culture, or do they influence each other equally?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from this week’s required material(s) and popular culture. Properly cite any references. By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates, one of whom came to a different conclusion than you, as well to one of your instructor’s posts.
