2. Each week, you are required to submit a reply to each initial prompt and replies to your peers or instructors in the Discussion Board. The required posts are as follows:

o No later than each week, you must respond to each initial prompt posted by the instructor. An automatic 10% deduction will be assessed for all late initial postings. Please note that there may be one or two initial prompts per week, depending on the course material. It is your responsibility to reply accordingly -AND-
o Throughout the week, and no later than the conclusion of each week, you must reply to a minimum of two (2) peers or instructors, per prompt although replying to more is highly encouraged. Replies must be made throughout the week to show active participation.

3. Any post made in the Discussion Board must be well-developed.
o A well-developed post is meaningful, shows relevance to the topic, and reflects your knowledge of the material. Well-developed posts demonstrate synthesis of the subject matter, extend the discussion by building on previous posts, and include proper source citations, when applicable. Posts limited to “I agree,” “Great posting,” or “Thank you” will not be assessed as well-developed, and will therefore not be considered a contribution to the number of required weekly posts.

Prompt 1
Within your community, there has been a large increase in teenage smoking, and community leaders are developing a plan to decrease the incidence of smoking. To help them, you will:
A) Develop a research question to address the problem.
B) Determine what kind of study should be undertaken.
C) Design a study to decrease the incidence of smoking in teenagers.

You need to remember what a research question is first… so start by ensuring you understand what it is and how to develop one. Do a bit of research and determine what a research question is and what makes a good research question. It should be clear and focused, but yet not something that can be answered in a few statements of fact. Truly on of the most important parts of the research process is forming the actual research question. So take time and seek out the best way to develop this question, and although it is already focused on a particular topic, there is still room to complete steps A-C in the discussion.
