Please be thorough in your responses. Although I am not requiring you to use external sources, if you do, you must cite them using APA formatting (last name of Author, year; p# if you are using exact quotes). If not using external sources, your response material should come from either of the two assigned texts. Be sure to provide the following to identify where your responses are coming from in your text: (Harris, 2007; p#) or if other book (Applewhite, 2019; p#). By providing me with citations, I will be better able to identify which information are your own ideas and opinions and which information is from the text and other external sources. A good response should contain all of the above. Responses receive up to 30 points. Please be detailed and specific.
