This week you will have two discussions. Your Instructor will be choosing the discussions questions and posting them as the first posts in the discussion forums. The requirements for the discussion this week are a minimum of four posts on four separate days. The total combined word count for all of your posts, counted together, should be over 600 words. Be sure to answer all the questions in the prompt and to read any resources that are required to complete the discussion properly. In order to satisfy the posting requirements for the week, please complete your initial post by Day 3 (Thursday) and your other posts by Day 7 (Monday). We recommend that you get into the discussion early and spread out your posts over the course of the week. Be sure to reply to your classmates and instructor. Try to attempt to take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or responding to the posts that they make to you. Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze things in as much detail as you can.
Find examples from literature or media sources, or from current or past history, that demonstrate both success and failure at demonstrating a virtue. In each case, what is the virtue that was demonstrated / lacking? How did their actions display or fail to display that virtue, and in the case of the failure, what would the virtuous person have done instead? Be sure to share the links with your classmates so they can read the full articles or watch the videos. Don’t use examples that others have used before you. First come, first served.
