Topic : International Monetary Fund (IMF)
See one week-1 folder for research terms. Topics will be selected on a first come first serve basis. To claim a topic, go to this week’s discussion form (below) and check what topics remain available. Select an available topic and start a new discussion thread by placing ONLY the topic in the Subject Line (do not put your name or anything else here). Leave the body of the thread blank and save the post. In weeks when there are insufficient topics for everyone once all topics have been selected you may then start selecting from the entire list again. But there should never be three posts on the same topic – if so the last one posted will receive no credit.
Now research your selected term in the university’s electronic library from only academic (refereed) journals. You will need at least three journal references and the textbook. Start your research with the textbook so it always grounds your topic. When your research is complete post it in the discussion form below.
Once you have completed your research return to your “initial post” and respond to it; actually past the paper’s body in the message section (for your peers to read) but attach the actual paper so the professor can review it for proper APA formatting. In weeks when there are insufficient topics for everyone once all topics have been selected you may then start selecting from the entire list again. But there should never be three posts on the same topic – if so, the last posted will receive no credit. New topics will be available each Saturday.
Peer Replies – post at least two substantive peer replies, of at least 200 words, in response to your classmates’ posts. However, credit cannot be given for more than one peer reply per day.
