Question description

I need help with some assignments, there are: 8 Active Learning Discussions, 5 Reaction papers, and 1 Research Paper. I can proved you with the syllabus to help get the assignments completed. The first discussion is due on Thursday 1/11/2018 and the first reaction paper is due Sunday 1/14/2018. All discussion posts are due on Thursdays of every week and Reaction papers are on Weeks 1,2,3,5, and 7. The Research paper is due week 6, but the topic of the paper needs to be submitted by week 3. The course starts on Monday 1/8/2018.

Reaction papers Reaction papers are a critical component of the conversation that will take place in this course. There will be a total of five different reaction papers throughout the course. Each of the five reaction papers will be approximately two pages in length. The text will be double-spaced and formatted using APA format. Students should clearly identify their topic and present their personal viewpoint or perspective; however, students must also present a factual basis for that viewpoint (as opposed to an opinion paper). All references supporting the factual basis must be properly cited to the original sources in accordance with APA guidelines. Additionally, there will be a discussion on the reaction papers in the subsequent module. Students will post responses to at least one classmate’s paper by the Thursday of the following module following the same guidelines and expectations used for the active learning discussion questions. Below is the schedule for the reaction papers. You are required to follow APA guidelines for each of your Reaction Papers. This means that the finished paper will be 5 pages. No more....no less. Page 1 is your title page; page 2 is your Abstract, page 3 & 4 will be the body of the report and page 5 will be your Reference page. Papers exceeding 5 pages will receive a grade reduction. The goal of these papers is to get you to be concise in both thought and writing. It is critical that you follow the above outline exactly, with two full pages of content. You should be writing the paper in a style as thought the person reading it has no prior knowledge of the topic you are covering. Module 1 Module 2 Module 3 Module 5 Module 7

The scholarly paper assignment is to be no longer than two, typed, doublespaced pages in summary format and it is expected that each student will devote a great deal of initiative toward producing a quality, scholarly product worthy of the high academic standards established at Saint Leo University. The paper will be evaluated based on the following criteria (see the rubric on the next page for the scoring breakdown): a. Thoroughness: How extensively does the paper develop the issue? Does the student show depth and understanding of the subject, or is the analysis superficial? Does the paper clearly identify its focus and logically analyze and discuss the topic? b. Scholarly quality: Does the assignment meet acceptable college level standards with respect to form and substance? Are the ideas presented in a clear, concise manner? Are there numerous typographical, spelling, or grammatical errors? (Each such error deducts points off the grade). Do not quote or cut and paste information to develop or write your paper. Use your own words and summarize. Papers with over 20% of content from other sources will not be accepted. Rubric (20 points possible): Students will complete the assignment with attention to the following criteria: Exceptional corresponds to an A- to A (90-100). Performance is outstanding; significantly above the usual expectations. Proficient corresponds to a grade of B- to B+ (80-89%). Skills and standards are at the level of expectation. Basic corresponds to a C to C+ (74-79%). Skills and standards are acceptable but improvements are needed to meet expectations well. Novice corresponds to a D to C- (60-73%). Performance is weak; the skills or standards are not sufficiently demonstrated at this time. Not Attempted corresponds to a grade of F (0-59%). This criterion is missing or not in evidence.

REACTION PAPER MODULE 1

In Chapter 2 of Dyson's "Fear mongering, an examiner's handbook" (2012), it expounds
on the idea of psychological oppression. Concentrating his endeavors on the key parts of
psychological warfare and its establishment, Dyson analyzes fear mongering a tiny bit at a time.
He dates us back similarly as the 1960's and makes an establishment for fear based oppression.
By developing its definition, Dyson clarifies and separates between the different sorts of fear
based oppression to build up a healthier comprehension of psychological warfare alone. At last,
Dyson unravels what can and what can't be considered fear mongering through considerations
and a progression of inquiries to outfit one's comprehension of the general thought of
psychological warfare.

Reaction Paper: Terrorism Module 1
Terrorism is one of the main focus points regarding chapter 2 of Dyson’s “Terrorism, An
Investigator’s Handbook.” Not only does this chapter reflect on all concepts of terrorism, but it is
also more focused on how the term ‘terrorism’ is defined (Dyson, W.E., 2012). Through the
dissection of terrorism and how this chapter relates to the subversions while describing the
various branches existing and explaining the functions of terrorism and how terrorism operates,
there are notations of how this affects the society at large from prior and present experiences.
Essentially, this terrorism chapter is as a whole, explaining the issues revolving around the
multiple types of terrorism.

As per the book, Terrorism is a term that is utilized to strike fear into people. Although
this term has been altered over and over again the past centuries, the main concept of the term
has remained the same (Dyson, W.E., 2012). This part of Dyson's work instantly opens up with
the numerous different meanings of psychological warfare, all the more so on how it has
developed from the start as of not long ago. Catchphrases, for example, "fear," "viciousness,"
and "terrorizing" are as yet a solid base and establishment of the key thought of psychological
warfare. In this way, its definition has not been altered radically. What has changed, pretty much,
is the different activities that the meaning of "psychological warfare" applies to. What was
viewed as a "fear monger" act has extended and advanced throughout the years to a considerably
bigger database of activities (White, J.R., 2014).

Some of the key questions that Dyson focuses on discerning what creates a terr...
