Throughout this course, many opportunities are available to post an initial response to a Discussion topic as well as to respond to your classmate’s responses.
After you have completed the reading, and without reviewing your classmate’s responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 200–250 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
After you have submitted your initial post, review some of your classmate’s posts and respond to at least two of your classmates. Refer to your Discussion Board Rubric in your Syllabus for specific grading explanation.

If a trait does not match any of the Big Five, discuss it separately.
