NOTE: There is generally no grace period for discussion board. Discussion board is our learning forum for each of the learning modules. We learn from each other.

Reminder: refer to all Discussion Board Guidelines, and REFER TO YOUR SOURCES WHEN MAKING CLAIMS! THIS IS KEY! Chicago Manual Citations Provided here.
