  • The initial discussion board post. Find a policy on something of interest to you. You will need to link the policy to your discussion board post. It could be a policy related to a health issue, education issue, poverty/social issue, equity or workplace issue, etc. Then write a 500-600 word analysis of the policy. The analysis must address all key components of a policy: need, goals, activities, challenges. You should actively cite two sources to support the analysis. Your policy analysis must therefore have at least three sources: 1) The policy; 2) a reputable source to support the analysis; 3) a second reputable source to support the analysis. The initial discussion board post must be written in MLA style and have a Works Cited list. The one thing you do not have to worry about is hanging indents on the Works Cited list.
