Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Fallacies and Biases #1
Prior to answering this week’s discussion prompt, complete the Buying a Car interactive scenario. In the car buying scenario, just like in real life, you were presented with an argument for making a different purchase than you had originally intended. Notice any similarities between the arguments offered by the car salesman and the kinds of arguments you have read about in the assigned readings. Consider how you can apply what you have learned in the class so far to the kinds of arguments given by the salesman. Keep these sorts of considerations in mind as you complete this discussion.
Your instructor will choose the discussion question and post it as the first post in the discussion forum. The requirements for the discussion this week are a minimum of four posts on four separate days including responses to at least two classmates.. The total combined word count for all of your posts, counted together, should be at least 600 words. Answer all the questions in the prompt, and read any resources that are required to complete the discussion properly.
In order to satisfy the posting requirements for the week, complete your initial post by Day 3 (Thursday) and your other posts by Day 7 (Monday). We recommend that you get into the discussion early and spread out your posts over the course of the week. Reply to your classmates and instructor. Take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or responding to the posts that they make to you. Keep the discussion on target, and analyze examples in as much detail as you can.
