For this discussion board assignment, you should start with a brief summary of the module readings. Your summary should be about 100-150 words and the major response should be at least 150 words so in total your discussion post should be at least 250 words. Then, write a response to one the following major post questions.
Major Post Question Options (Please select at least one question from the list below):
What is the difference between the genetic constants and the genetic variables of human populations, and how can it be that genetic constants help to explain important differences between human societies, but genetic variables don’t?
Given what you have read from the module- what is culture, where does it come from, and do you think culture is necessary for human survival? How has it influenced your life thus far? Explain your answer and be sure to give explicit examples to help illustrate your point.
Describe the position you occupy in American society’s system of social organization and how it influences your behavior, using the various concepts developed in Chapter 2. Top grades go to those who demonstrate the greatest understanding of the various aspects of social organization discussed in the text.
Major Post: Your original post should be at least 150 substantive words. When answering the question(s), you should attempt to critically engage with the literature. This means going beyond a summary of what the textbook says about the topic. Rather, you should use that as a starting point for your own contribution.
Minor Posts: You must also respond to at least two (2) of your classmates’ posts in a substantive manner. Response posts should be at least 150 words each. It is not acceptable to repeat information from your original post in your response post to a classmate. Your response posts should propel the conversation started by your classmate forward. Posts consisting only of “I agree” or “Hello X, I enjoyed your post,” and so forth will receive no credit.
Your posts should use ASA style in-text citations, with page numbers, and contain a reference list at the end.
Please type your responses using correct spelling, grammar, and syntax.
This discussion board is worth 30 total points (20 major post and 5 points for minor post 1 and 5 points for minor post 2).
