By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion

For your follow up post…review the responses provided by your peers. Engage in conversation, or even civil debate, as you discuss their insights and viewpoints. You may ask questions for clarification (if you are confused by their initial post) or pose questions that advance the conversation.
