Read the discussion prompt for the week. The prompt may include a document to read, as well as one or more questions to answer. Then write a short response using clear language and specific examples from readings (textbook and documents) and lectures. DO NOT USE OTHER WEBSITES OR SOURCES. You do not need to use formal citations, but you should indicate which document or image to which you are referring (and use quotation marks for direct quotations). Your journal assignment should be a minimum of two paragraphs long (about 250 words). Each weekly journal assignment is worth 1% of your final course grade.
