4-1 Discussion: Social Science Developments Each discussion is meant to be a collaborative space for conversation about the course concepts and for learning from your peers’ diverse perspectives. To ensure an interesting discussion, you are encouraged to think creatively about your initial posts and build upon the points made by your peers. It is also important to review the module resources and read the prompts in their entirety before participating in the discussion.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
- Identify a major development that occurred in one perspective of the social sciences that affected how your advertisements might be studied. This could be an event, technological advancement, discovery, rejection/acceptance of a theory, or paradigm shift. You may choose a development from the provided list of “Major Developments in the Social Sciences” in the module resources. Or you may conduct your own research to identify a different development that interests you.
- Provide a brief summary of the social science development you selected (no more than three sentences).
- Explain how your chosen development might have affected how your advertisements are studied.
For your response posts, address the following:
- Why might the developments your peers chose matter not only to the social sciences but to us as individuals and a society?
