    After I finished my discussion post this morning I have done nothing but stare at the computer and case study. I feel uncomfortable submitting something into safe assign without references. Maybe I am making more out of it than what it is. I'm going to take a break and watch Bubble Guppies with my kid to clear my brain
    I'm kind of "weirded" out by the no references, etc, but don't make it harder than it is. It's a letter afterall, I do need to take my down to a 5th/6th grade reading level...but will edit it later. Just get your thoughts down and refine later. I have one page done, will wrap it up after a break. Probably will be about 2 pages I think.

    My therapeutic letter was 2 1/2 pages after writing the nsg dx. The letter itself was about 2 pages. I just simplified my wording a bit to make it 5th to 6th grade level. I have to say I was not a fan of this assignment. It took me much longer than it should have. I'm sure I was overthinking it because that's what I tend to do. I also looked ahead and can't find the cased study for week 2.

    Here's a link to a place where you can paste your text in a box and it will assess the reading level of your text. THE SMOG READABILITY FORMULA

    I was able to get mine down to 6.7 grade. I just can't figure out how to dumb it down anymore than than.

    In word you can check the readability level as you check the spelling (Google it to find out how to add that function). Basically to reduce the readability use small sentences and small words (as measured by syllables).

    Thanks NBanasz1, I didn't know this existed in Word. I did find it and added it. When I checked my text with Word's readability checker it listed it at an 8th grade level. This was higher than when I checked it on the SMOG test. So different readability checkers grade differently. I wonder which readability checker our TA will use?

    I can't find the week 2 case study either. My guess is that they are waiting until week 2 starts to actually post it. I too would like to get a head start on this. I submitted my Therapeutic letter and it was checked via Safe Assign with a 5% match, so no worry about possible plagirism.

    I emailed the teacher and she posted an announcement with all of the case studies. For those that want to work ahead.

    Are you able to post Case Study #2 here? My section still does not have access to it. A question about it has been posted in our questions section and has not been answered.

    I believe every section and every individual group has an entirely different case. I can't see my case yet but it has a last name that differs from the case of 3 other people I know.

    It seems from the teachers announcement that there is a total of 3 case studies, I can see mine listed on the left at the very bottom and can see my group members under the group tab. From what I understand we have to converse about the case using the group discussion area then make individual postings under the discussion board. Have not done a class like this yet, so I guess I'll just see how it goes.
