This week you are going to submit your first online posting.
You need to do three things here:
1) You, first, need to open the discussion board link for the topic that you have chosen.
Create a new thread and post your first message.
· Make sure it is well researched and edited.
· It needs to be at least two paragraphs long (8 – 12 lines each).
· Remember to include both in-text referencing and a reference list.
2) Once you have done this, you need to copy and paste your first posting into the space below and submit this as an assignment. If you do not submit the post as an assignment, you cannot get marks for it. In other words, the post must appear on the discussion board and in this task.
3) You must complete the self-assessment rubric that can be found below. You must do this by reflecting on your post and then deciding how well you have completed each of the assessment criteria, explaining why you gave yourself the mark you did. This is a compulsory aspect of this task.

I used sufficient data to defend the argument, and the data is accurately interpreted to identify other sources’ position within a larger scientific environment. Personal experiences and knowledge are examined thoughtfully and critically to identify significance of all social factors and support the main...
