Each reply must be 100 to 150 word to be substantive. When you read another student’s post (or the instructor’s post), you have the ability to expand the conversation. To do this, you can reference material or, when appropriate, relate it to your own life experience. *Tip/Hint* Utilize APA citation and references where warranted.
