  • oDiscussing Information with the Public
    The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week on the basis of the course competencies covered.
    For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.
    To support your work, use your course and text readings and also use outside sources. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
    Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
    Read two different articles from the MMWR developed by the CDC. Complete a SOCO worksheet for each of the articles you read.
    Once you are done with the above activity, answer the following questions:

    • Was it easy to determine the SOCO for the articles you read? Give reasons to substantiate your answer.
    • What could the authors have done to more easily convey their message?
