Discussing challenges that face our world often means investigating opinions and ideas different from your own. Remember to remain thoughtful and respectful towards your peers and instructor in your discussion post and replies.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
- Think about a challenge, opportunity, event, or issue that affects your community. How might having knowledge of the social sciences affect how you understand that issue or how you act?
- Discuss the responsibility (if any) of citizens to be informed about the social sciences. Consider how a population with a basic understanding of the social sciences could influence how current global challenges or questions are approached.
