The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.

At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

Part 1

Select a U.S. state, and research the number of deaths that occur while in custody for that state for the most recent 5-year time period available.

  • Provide statistics for the state you have chosen including gender, race, and ages for those who died from illness, AIDS, suicide, homicide, substance abuse, accident, and other/unknown (30%).

Part 2

Then, listen to the two-part excited delirium debate in your course materials:

  • Unit 5- Excited Delirium Syndrome 

In the two-part series, two subjects die. Respond to the following:

  • Did the subjects die as a result of drug usage, preexisting medical conditions, or excessive use of force by police? What is your opinion? 
  • In addition to your opinion, provide facts to back up your claim.

Suggestions to Responding to Peer Posts

  • Choose a classmate’s post that covers a different state from the one you chose. How do the statistics for the deaths in custody for that state differ from the state you chose?
  • Choose a classmate’s post that takes a different position from your own. Are there any aspects of the student’s argument that made you rethink your position? If so, what were they?
  • If not, what additional arguments can you provide that correlate with the points made by your classmate?

Provide APA citation and references for information found in other sources that you are using to support your responses.

Provide citations and references for your materials in APA style

The following guidelines will be used for grading:

 

30% Part 1: Students provide statistics for a state  including gender, race, and ages for those who died from illness, AIDS, suicide, homicide, substance abuse, accident, and other/unknown.
50% Part 2:  Students address the following questions:

  • Did the subjects die as a result of drug usage, preexisting medical conditions, or excessive use of force by police? What is your opinion?
  • In addition to your opinion, provide facts to back up your claim.  The student compares and contrasts the 2 systems.
15% The students’ responses to peer posts are substantive, well-thought, and address the suggestions for responses.
5% The student provides APA citation and references for information found in other sources used to support responses.
