Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 2
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.
Resources and Recommendations
Provide your overall assessment of the content and quality of your program of study at Ashford University. How do you plan to apply what you have learned to your future profession? If you have already used information gained from your course of study in your profession, share specific examples of the application of knowledge and skills. What suggestions do you have to improve the Social and Criminal Justice program?
In addition to this reflection, review the current event resources in the Required Resources section of this week. Which of these resources do you plan to use in the future? What are some additional news feeds or current event resources that will help you stay informed on current trends and news in the field?
Your initial post should be 150-200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Substantively respond to at least two of your classmates’ by either commenting on the examples of how they have already applied these skills, or by offering additional possibilities for future application that they have not yet considered. Reference the program learning outcomes in Discussion 1 of Week Five, “Assessing Your Program of Study,” to drive your comments.
