SCS 200 Week 2 Short Response Guidelines and Rubric

Overview: The short response activities in the webtext throughout this course are designed to show your understanding of key concepts as you engage with course content.

Prompt: During the second week of the course, you will respond to several questions in the webtext as you complete each assigned learning block. At the end of Week 2, you will review your answers to these questions and ensure that you have responded to each question. It is important that you answer each question. Otherwise, the words no response will appear in brackets when you submit the assignment. The questions and their original locations in the webtext are listed in the table below in case you want to refer back to the reading as you edit, but you can edit your responses to all the questions directly in Theme: Exploring Social Science Issues, learning block 2-4 (page 2), before exporting to Word for submission to your instructor in the learning environment.
