Prepare: As you prepare to write your answer to the discussion   question, think about the general education courses that you have taken as a   university student. To help you address the prompts, carefully read the Week   One required resources that address the purpose of general education courses.

 

Reflect: After reviewing the required resources, and in light of   what you discovered in preparing to write your answer to the discussion   question, consider, analyze, and explain why general education courses should   be a significant part of every student’s education.

 

Write: For this discussion, address the following prompts: 

  • Provide at least three        reasons why every student should be required to take general education        courses. Explain your rationale. Support your rationale with evidence        from at least one scholarly source.
  • Describe what you have        learned from at least three specific courses (e.g., philosophy, history,        English, math, psychology, etc.) that has proved its usefulness in your        daily life. For instance, what did you learn in history classes beyond        just names, dates, and places? In literature courses, what did you learn        about life, the university, and everything beyond the literary work        itself?
