All information needed to answer discussion questions comes from your Chapter 6 text book readings, Chptr 6 power points ( attached below) and any supplied videos. Do not consult outside resources other than your text book or supplied videos to answer these questions. Answers atleast 200 words long and should come from the information presented in the text book readings or supplied videos and then your interpretation/integration of that information to receive credit. If, after you have posted your initial response, you would like to look up additional information from another source and use that information in a response to another student’s post, that is allowed.
