Chapter 2, Nash discusses the early pioneers’ negative feelings about being stuck in what they call “a wilderness condition.” They felt that they had to conquer and control scary wilderness. What in your life experience can you relate to how these pioneers were feeling? (Anxious about being too near nature, being scared by nature, nature that’s out of control, nature needing to be conquered.) Think of something beside your “lost in the woods” episode.

The best submissions will be full of detail and introspection. They will make reference to what Nash says in this chapter. They will also have paragraphs separating the main ideas. Have fun! Though I am not requiring additional posts, I highly recommend commenting on other student’s posts. Lets create a dialog.

How to succeed in your discussion postings:

Read and do all of the on-line material in the learning module (as well as review the in-class material) before you answer.
Think about your answer and how it links to the material in the learning module.
Title your post with your last name and topic. Example: Steffey_Wilderness
Write a brief introduction.
Use paragraphs.
Assignments must be well-written and free of grammar, spelling, and capitalization errors. (You MUST capitalize “I,” for example.) You should run a spell and grammar check. Although this format seems similar to instant messaging, it is actually a college assignment for credit.

Any postings that have spelling or grammar errors that could be caught by spell/grammar check will receive zero points.

Full credit will be given to thoughtful, detailed, in-depth answers that show you have understood and incorporated what we are learning that week. Especially valuable are subtlety, nuance, reflection, and insight.
