Discussion board | syg 2010 | Florida State University

Watch a Frontline episode, “Chasing Heroin” at https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/chasing-heroin/ (Links to an external site.)

The video describes a drug treatment program called LEAD in Seattle.  It is based on a public health approach to drug use.  Make your argument about how effective LEAD will be in a long run.  Explain your answer as you draw on the information about the program given in the video and/or the textbook chapter (e.g., biological, psychological, and sociological explanations of drug use).  Your explanations should be coming mostly from one of these two sources or both sources, but you can also bring in any external information to supplement the main sources.

For your initial post, create your own thread by clicking the “reply” button just below this instruction.

To reply to classmates’ posts (second part of your discussion task), click the “reply” button just below the student’s post.  Your responses to classmates should go beyond stating you agree or disagree.  You need to explain why, and you can also help the classmates articulate the points or extend the classmates’ arguments.

Length: Your initial response needs to be at least 250 words, and each of your responses to group members needs to be at least 150 words.  (If you are not sure how many words you are writing, write them (or copy them) in Word and see the word counter at the bottom left corner of the window.) 

Deadline: Your initial response is due on Friday 9:00PM ET, and two replies to group members are due on Sunday 9:00PM ET.  The discussion board closes on Sunday at 9:00PM ET, and Canvas will accept late submission of initial responses until then.  For late submissions of initial posts, 3 points will be deducted every 24 hours.  (No late submissions of replies will be accepted.)

Grading: Only meaningful responses will receive full credits.  A meaningful contribution answers the question directly, thoroughly, and correctly by explicitly drawing on the concepts learned in the course materials, just like essay questions in exams.  Your responses also need to be original.  Posts that have similar content will be checked for originality.  No credit will be given to overly emotional responses, those that attack group members (as opposed to professionally critiquing their responses), and other inappropriate responses.
