  • Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations, along with at least one scholarly peer-reviewed reference to support your answer unless the assignment calls for more. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Electronic Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.
  • You need to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post’s answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
  • Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.
