Materials. In completing this assignment, you apply the theories from lecture and the assigned reading to the case study and questions. You may also use the noted supplemental readings. (Further supplemental readings and resources will be posted to the LMS in ReadingsOnline, and possibly in the weekly seminar folders. These are not required but may be used for your case studies). We will discuss that case in the next class. Meaning, the Week 2 case is discussed in Week 2, but uses the Week 1 theories. For highest marks, you need to specifically work with and reference one or both of the assigned readings for the prior week, as well as fully answering the discussion questions. Use of online materials is unlikely to be helpful, and excessive use of outside theories or prior week’s material may reduce marks. Please see case study rubric on LMS and sample response.
Format. This is a response assignment, not a research assignment. That means you need to work with the week’s assigned reading, PPT, and case writeup for highest marks. Online research might not get you to the right place. You may also use the supplemental materials if applicable, as long as you have covered the assigned materials. Please see rubric online and note that points may be docked for not using assigned format.
