It is very important for you to comprehend the importance of each discussion to your grade. Discussions are 50% of the course grade. Not meeting minimum words for your essay and responses will result in a substantially lower grade. Not submitting essays and responses that meet the discussion criteria, as per instructions, will also result in a lower grade.

Module # 3 Discussion

  • Students will be required to participate in all 8 discussions in this course. Your grade will be determined by the standards set in each module.

1. In this assignment you are asked to write an essay of no less than 300 words and participate in a discussion. Your essay should be referenced by at least two citations. Read the information I provided in the document ” Proper Example of Essay Presentation.” If you quote something, a number or author’s name must be placed in parenthesis after the quote, then noted at the bottom of the essay in yourbibliography. Same for something you paraphrase anything from another author. If you miss these important instructions, your grade will be lowered. Read as many essays written by others as possible in order see some of the better essays posted by others. Ask yourself, did I forget to include something, overlook any requirements, what can I do to make my essay worth total credit due?

2. Please do not wait until the end of the discussion to participate. Use the college library for scholarly references. You may use GOOGLE for more information for original sources. No WIKI or encyclopedia sources allowed. Do not use either as a source of information.

In every discussion essay for this course, supply your sources. After a sentence or paragraph that you have “borrowed” from any author, use ( page number and author’s name). Then, at the bottom of your essay list your references in a bibliography. You should attempt to use original course for primary information, not WIKI. Using WIKI as you primary source will result in a lower grade. This policy applies to all discussion board postings for your analysis essay.

Answer preview……….

The YouTube video provided tells a chilling account of the Japanese surprise attack on American soil at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The United States joined World War II because of this attack (Attack on Pearl Harbor, n.d.).

The United States and Japan had been at odds for decades.  Japan wanted to expand into its neighbor’s territory and take over its import market. Japan invaded China in 1937 because they lacked important resources and knew they could get some of these resources as well as cheap labor if they did (Spielvogel, 2018, p. 839). The United States did not like Japan’s attack on China. As a result, the United States tried to halt Japan’s progress by banning exports to the country such as oil and raw materials (Spielvogel, 2018, p. 839). The U.S. efforts were unsuccessful as Japan was determined to stand their ground. Japan decided that war with the United States was inevitable (Spielvogel, 2018, p. 839)………
