Wisdom of the Elders

For this assignment, we will have one discussion board, and we will be focusing on two questions based on this weeks assigned readings.  Both questions aim to generate critical and open-ended assessments of the primary sources included in these readings.  In your answers, please consider reflecting on how these texts are connected to the lectures and other readings, as well as drawing upon concrete examples and textual evidence from these readings. 

Once you post your answers, please use the 3C+Q model (details below) to respond to at least one other post by your classmates.  When you engage with someone elses post, please only address one of their answers.

Please find the questions and an explanation of the 3C+Q model below.

And most importantly, please feel free to explore and have fun with your analyses.
