Throughout the course, you will engage in Discussions with classmates to share reflections on the concepts of each unit. The Discussions will also give you the opportunity to learn from the interpretations and perspectives of your classmates. This course itself will be a study in different social, political, and cultural influences, as the class is made up of individuals with varying views of the world. The Discussions will give you an opportunity to express your point of view. Be sure to write carefully and respond to classmates respectfully.
To make the most out of your learning experience and earn a good Discussion grade, you must answer the Discussion question and then respond substantially to at least two classmates’ postings for each unit Discussion. You should write at least 200 words in the original post; then you should post with content and detail on the posts to your peers. Aim for at least four sentences in each post to your peers, building the Discussion with references to the Reading, application in your life, or other information to help share your perspective. With the original reply and two posts to your peers, this means you will post three times to each Discussion Board. You will want to use APA format with in-text and full end reference for citation of sources, which can help to give credit to the research you used and also to distinguish between your ideas and the sources.
Topic 1: Recognizing Your Potential
For this Discussion, you will share an experience of overcoming obstacles and reflect on the power of the individual to act in the face of social, cultural, or political pressures.
Consider a time when you, a loved one, or a friend had been underestimated. Perhaps a manager was surprised when your friend came up with a new solution to a problem at work. Maybe you had been told that you could not succeed in college due to a learning disability.
What was the situation? What were the external forces, social, political or cultural that influenced the situation? How did it feel to have people doubting you, a loved one, or a friend of yours? What helped you or this other person to overcome the obstacle and uncover their personal potential?

We all have those moments when someone tells us we are not good enough. For me, a moment that comes to mind is when I was 18 and having my first child. I had just graduated from high school and had high expectations from my family to start my journey into college and complete a degree while working full-time. I had more doubts that I did certainties from others, and so I used this as fuel to eventually prove everyone wrong. I made the decision to raise my child while working full-time and begin college when I felt I could take on the task. I was told by my family and friends that the longer I put off college, then the more likely I would not attend. However, I have similar beliefs to the culture of Japan; you can become anything as long as you work for it. (Michaeli, Lazo, Nghe, Moussavi, Steinberg, 2017). From 18 years old, I undoubtedly knew that I would someday attend college and complete a degree. It took me four years to plan, save money, and organize my life with my child to allow myself the opportunity to begin my college degree. So here I am doing just that.
