Be sure to cite specific information and examples from the textbook using parenthetical citation format, simply put the page number from where you found your information in parenthesis, like this (102). Don’t worry, these chapters are loaded with information that will allow you to answer these discussion questions. Try to write in your own words and do not use “direct quotes” in quotation marks. Be specific and avoid vague generalizations. You will need to examine Chapter 6 a little bit, so get ready. All primary posts and replies need cited examples from the textbook.
