Pick wisely!!!..You cannot repeat a person already covered by another student in the initial post or follow up essay. Points will be taken off for repeating material already covered and you must label your forum heading with the key figure’s name or group’s name.
***You can label your heading prior to writing your forum response- go back after you label your post and edit it to add the information. This way you can claim the person before someone else does.
