This discussion is the last we will be
experiencing together. This is a space to review and reflect on your
Our discussion this week has three parts.
First, share with the class three “take-away” elements of the course
that added to your understanding of human psychology and that you
believe will serve you well in the future in both your personal and
professional lives and explain why. NOTE: A list of textbook chapter
topics and accompanying chapter concept descriptions can’t be submitted
for this assignment; it isn’t about the course textbook. Here you are
sharing learning that was and that you believe will remain of value to
you, not chapter reviews. Neither will statements of “Nothing” or “I
don’t know” or “I can’t name three” meet the requirements of this
assignment. Be thorough, thoughtful and focused in this part of the
post. Think about what stood out to you and why it did during the 8
Second, describe the most meaningful three experiences you had while
participating in the course discussions with your classmates.
Third, complete the sentence below. Think information that you learned
in completion of the course here rather than preformed opinion in place
at the time we started 8 weeks ago and elaborate in the “because

Don’t breeze through this discussion assignment. It is graded for as
much for substance, insight and careful thought as all the previous
You don’t need to worry about citing sources for this discussion
assignment. This is a time to share with each other what you learned
during the course and via dialoging within our learning community rather
than writing an essay style paper. The 400 word length minimum is still
the requirement for the “initial post” as is the 250 word length
minimum for each of the two required replies to classmates.
