The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
Prepare a 4?6-paragraph response to the following questions:
What role does the concept of exclusionary rule play in our criminal justice system?
To what extent might one argue that the exclusionary rule has gone too far in protecting civil liberties at the expense of fighting crime?
The provision contained in the Bill of Rights should be discussed as well as how it relates to criminal proceedings.
Incorporate in your discussion some of the shifts in the U.S. Supreme Court’s position relating to the application of the exclusionary rule in more recent cases.
Be sure to reference all sources using APA style. For more information on APA, please visit the APASTYLE Lab.
In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on at least two other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
