Please submit your initial thread two days prior to the posted deadline (i.e. September 20). Utilize the remaining two days to comment on other posts and respond to comments from fellow students on your post. The discussion questions are based on chapters 6 and 7 of the textbook. In this discussion, we will dig deeper into the final two stages of the policy making process. These are policy implementation and policy evaluation. Please read the chapters and lecture notes before putting up your thread. The lecture notes and chapter summaries are available in the “content” folder in Blazeview.
