Initiate a new discussion thread. These discussions have to relate the readings. They cannot be about random subjects, but the best threads are those that apply what you read to the political world as we know it. A summary of the readings can be a great first step, but what did you learn from the summary?
The Readings: You MUST use the sources as in-text citations.
