Weekly discussions (50 points). Write a discussion post over the readings assigned for this week. Your discussion post should contain at least two paragraphs: the first paragraph (no less than 250 words) summarize all the major points covered in the assigned readings. The second paragraph (no less than 100 words) discusses how your own experience, or stories that you read in other places, can be related to one or more points covered in the assigned readings. The maximal points for your discussion post/assignment each week are 50 (10 points off for each 100 words shorter or major point missing).
