Your discussion board questions are a bit different this week. They are very open-ended. I want to know what you think about the ideas included in them. I have some detailed examples.

Answer the following questions. They are worth 30 points. I expect good answers. I will NOT give full credit for short…one or two sentence answers. I know that is subjective, but that is what college is about often times. It gives you an opportunity to let me know what you think…and what you learn from the chapter. Also, I will be looking for original thoughts….not what you read or know other students have to write.

Discuss the differing types of power and examine your own use of power. Explain how each of these types of power can be misused. For example, referent power can be used to avoid responsibility and risk-taking. If a spouse becomes involved in something the other partner is interested in, then the spouse is not responsible for choosing what he or she would be interested in without the influence of the partner. Informational power can be misused when one partner bombards the other with information, minimizing emotional reactions or affective responses to the ideas. Legitimate power can be used as a club when one partner says, “You have to because you were a part of this discussion and you didn’t say no then.” Expert power creates a condition in which one partner has full (or nearly full) responsibility, and the other partner can then not accept any responsibility for failure in that area. Reward and coercive power have obvious potential for abuse.

Discuss the nature of conflict, that it is a normal (although not fun) part of life. Conflict occurs in ALL relationships, between nations, companies, and individuals—even between pets. Describe some of the positive outcomes of conflict, such as the increase in self-esteem if you present your side of an argument well and/or control your anger, or knowing that your partner still loves you even during and after a fight.

Discuss how we communicate without words? How many different meanings does the word “dude” have, depending on the inflection? Discuss the importance of nonverbal communication (up to 95% of all communication), such as tone of voice, looking (or not looking) at the speaker, facial expressions, etc.

As a college student, you need to find time to study and complete your assignments.However, the rest of your life continues as if you have not just gotten busier.

For example, a student, Tammy, was pursuing her master’s degree.Because her husband had supported her when she earned her bachelor’s degree, she thought that circumstances would be the same during her master’s degree; however, it did not happen that way.She still did all the cooking, all the grocery shopping, and she was having trouble trying to finish her homework with the kids running around.Finally, frustrated, she blew up at her husband.After she calmed down and they really talked to each other, her husband shared that he thought that because she had already earned a degree, she knew what to do and would not need any help.Tammy shared that it was because her husband supported her by taking over some of the things Tammy normally did that she was able to complete her first degree.

Families (support systems) may not intuitively know what the college student needs. Tammy was self-advocating, having the “I need” conversation with her husband. In her case, she needed a quiet area to study four times a week for two hours, help with the kids during study time, and some help with cooking and cleaning when projects were due. She found that by sharing what she needed, her family (support system) understood her needs and were better able to meet them.

What are your needs? For Part 1 of this assignment, you are going to have an “I need” conversation with your support system (family, friends, whoever will be there to support you).This involves the following steps:

First, write a list of the main points you want to cover in your conversation – what is it that you really need to make this college journey a positive experience? You want to explain what you are doing, why you are doing it, and what you need from this person.

Second, point out the “win-win” in the situation – how does your support person “win” when they help you to meet your needs while you are a college student?Also, be ready to answer questions your support person may have for you.

Third, during the “I need” conversation, pay attention to the verbal and nonverbal cues your partner is giving you.Be able to interpret those signals appropriately so you have a productive and meaningful conversation.

After having your “I need” conversation, for Part 2 of this assignment you will write a paper about your experience. Your written assignment is to address the following points, using at least 750 words:

1.Provide your “I need….” list. Explain the points you wanted to cover in the conversation.

2.Recap your “I need…” conversation. With whom did you have the conversation? Did you cover your main points?Why or why not?

3.Reflect on your emotions. How were you feeling during the conversation?

4.Analyze your support person’s response. How did the person respond to your conversation?

5.Anticipated results: Do you believe you will get what you need?Why or why not?

6.If you were to have the “I need” conversation with a second person, would you change anything given your experience with the first conversation?Why or why not?



This week, we briefly took a look at civility in a TEDtalk video.Our discussion forum also addressed the issue of civility.As you go through college, you will encounter a greater variety of people from all kinds of backgrounds.It is increasingly important in our society today to maintain civility as we interact with others.What exactly is civility?

iii.In the left sidebar, you select “Academic Journals” for the Source Types.

iv.Find one article that seems appealing to you. It is essential that you chose an article you comprehend fully since you will be required to discuss a quote and a paraphrase from the article and demonstrate its relevance to your topic. If you don’t find any article of interest, try different phrasing like “civility in schools”, “manners in education”, “conflict in schools”, etc.

b.Download the PDF Full Text and save a copy of that article on a flash drive or on your computer.

2.Prepare a summary of the article.

a.As you read the article, pause after each paragraph and jot down the main point of that paragraph.

Degree Planning (Healthcare administration)

This week, we introduced the idea of general education – the core courses you will take before you jump into your program of study. In this assignment, you will explore the Grantham University catalog to determine which general education courses you will be taking, along with the elective courses that round out your education.

You will definitely need to read the online catalog in order to complete this assignment.

Review Section 7 in the catalog for the General Education program description, categories, and list of courses.Make sure you understand why we require students to complete the General Education slate of courses.

Then look for your degree program in Section 8 of the catalog.You will see each program listed by college (School of Business, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering and Computer Science, School of Nursing and Allied Health).After reading the description of the program and the student learning outcomes, you will see the tables that list the General Education courses, the Program Core, and the electives.

Once you have read these sections in the catalog, you are ready to start this assignment.Your job is to write a response to each of the following four prompts:

Prompt 1: General Education Requirements

A.To start this assignment, write a paragraph explaining the reason why we require students to complete the General Education courses (you may need to refer to section 7 of the catalog for this rationale).

B.Then using this template list and then describe the courses you will take to complete the General Education requirement for your program.In some programs, you have choices – in other programs, you do not have choices (they tell you which courses to take).

Prompt 2:Program Core Requirements

A. In a paragraph state your degree program and explain why you chose your program of study.In your answer explain how will this program of study will help you in your career advancement?

B. Next, in the same template as Prompt 1, list and describe the courses you are required to complete for the program.Be sure to point out which courses are pre-requisites for more advanced courses.This is important because you must enroll in these courses in sequence – you have to pass the pre-requisite before you can attempt the higher course.

Prompt 3:Electives

Each program has a different number of electives that you can select to complete your degree.Take note of special requirements, such as the fact that some electives have to be chosen from the program (versus those that can be chosen from any course listed in the catalog). Also note whether the elective must be a course numbered 300 or above.

A.In the same template as Prompts 1 and 2, include the courses you choose as electives

B.For each elective include a statement explaining why you are interested in the course in the table

Prompt 4:Sequencing of Courses, Credit Hours and Graduation Requirements

This is the truly important part of this assignment. Some courses have pre-requisites, which means you have to take a designated lower-level course before you can take the advanced course.

A.In your template, make sure to designate all classes that have pre-requisites in your template.
