Thread Rubric: Here is what I am looking for in these threads. My goal is to key you in on some of the social/political issues in a region and improve your understanding of the topic. The threads are designed to enhance the course and provide a written question, Many of the threads my require some online research. It takes only a few minutes.
Critical Thinking Question:
During the Soviet era, 15 ?union republics? and several ?autonomous republics? were created. Are there any similar areas (political divisions) within the United States or other countries? How are these similar? In what ways are they different?
