other professional rationale).
2. Comparison: Compare your research with what you have studied during the
module/week in which the key topic/thread is assigned. Note differences or

6. Annotated Bibliography: Cite the articles you researched in current APA format. An

for each article.
You will be required to write substantive replies to a minimum of 2 other classmates’ threads.
Each reply must be a minimum of 200 words and include at least 2 scholarly resources.
