Unit 1: discussion | Management homework help

Introduction

You should consider the discussion threads as being analogous to the  kind of discussions you would have in a face-to-face class: our goals  should be to say things that are interesting, provocative, and  respectful. Since this is a classroom setting, you are encouraged to  proofread, and to avoid the more slang- and emoticon-fueled discourse  that appears on Twitter and Facebook. One of the goals here is  professional preparation; if you would not say or do something in the  workplace, then you should not post similar material in a discussion  thread. You can post more than twice to the postings of your peers; the  two longest postings are the ones that will be evaluated.

Where possible, the threads will cover supplemental material  incorporated into each chapter, via videos related to the supporting  discussion integrated into your textbook chapters. Postings should not  merely summarize the material, but should deal with how to apply the  material in practice.

Directions

The posting should consist of no less than 250 words and should  incorporate at least one outside, i.e., from a library database search,  APA formatted reference at the end of the post. After posting your  answers, begin making two (2) or more replies to other students’ posts.  Your responses should ask a pertinent question, contribute significantly  to your classmate’s posting and foster further discussion in order to  receive the full points per response (up to 2 responses). Response  postings have the same requirements for length and outside references as  original postings. To make a knowledgeable posting, it would be a good  idea to review the supplemental material before writing your response.

Review the grading rubric before beginning this assignment.
