I’m going to take a different approach with this week’s discussion. I would like each of you to submit a “Hot Topic” article intended to tie current events to the
material being covered this week. You can pull an article from a business publication such as the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Business Week etc.,
Materials covered in class were: human resources management OR mission statements.
Please include the following information:
- A complete citation (APA) on the source of the article (including articles found on the Internet).
- A brief but thorough synopsis of the article. The synopsis is similar to an abstract; it is a factual summary of the material covered in the article. Your personal opinion is NOT appropriate in this section.
- A paragraph that makes specific connections to course materials.
- Your personal opinion of the article. Keep in mind however, that your opinion should be based on sound logic and reasoning, and should reflect your learning in this and other courses. Simply stating “I feel . . .” is not adequate.
- Two-three points that you will find useful in your current or future profession.
- One or two questions to stimulate discussion.
