discussion post 500 words.

As you prepare to make arguments in your Portfolio Project for a particular position (essay about social inequality) this is a good time to discuss the credibility of sources.

Reflect: Think about the sources you are using in your paper. Why are the sources credible?

Write:In this week’s discussion, answer the following:

  • What specific facts are you required to know, share, and defend in your field?
  • What sources do you consider most credible when you defend facts and statements to someone who is questioning you about the accuracy of your claims?
  • How do you know these sources are credible? How do others find them credible? When you can’t find the answers you need how do you do research to get information to solve your problem?

Here are some examples: 

  • Secretaries have to create and keep track of schedules and other kinds of information, which they produce on request for clients or supervisors. Financial workers have to respond to auditors and advise clients about the best investment opportunities.
  • Sales people have to answer questions about products and defend their claims about quality and performance.
  • Tech support employees explore facts surrounding each customer’s situation and troubleshoot using the process of elimination.
  • Managers have to know all aspects of a job and ensure production requirements are met by the people under their watch. Essentially for this assignment discuss how you find facts, how you know they are credible, and where you might go when you need a reference, or more information to solve a problem.

Current Issues & Critical Thinking

Discussions 1 & 2

Discussion 1: (Current Issues) Choose a current issue to research that can be related to providing quality physical education at the elementary school level.  Some examples of issues might be childhood obesity, budget constraints, family / home environment, nutrition, prenatal care, lack of medical care or other factors that either offer an advantage or disadvantage to a child’s motor development. Review several scholarly sources that offer information on the issue.    Include short summary of the issue in your initial post.  Also address the following questions:

    1. What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of this issue in regard to motor development?  
    2. Is this issue a more recent concern, or has it been an ongoing issue for many years? Explain.   
    3. Who (or what) has contributed most to minimizing the negative effects concerning this issue?

Finally, include at least one reputable website that offers strategies and/or resources to counter the negative effects of the issue.  Explain why you included this source. Guided Response:  Choose two classmates to respond to.  Review the resource each of your classmates provided in their initial post.  Comment on how you think the resource could provide support for parents and families.  Offer another resource that also provides support concerning that issue. Optional Extra Response:  If a classmate responded to your initial post and suggested an additional resource, respond and offer your opinion on the pros and cons of the suggested resource. Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your discussion.

Discussion 2: (Critical Thinking ) In this discussion forum, you will examine your critical thinking, inquiring, and communication skills as they relate to the subject of physical education. Questioning compels thinking and, as thinkers, you assess what you read and incorporate knowledge with your prior understanding of the subject. As part of this discussion, you will read about concepts surrounding physical education and evaluate your previous knowledge on this subject. Then, you will create your own question for your classmates to answer.  Complete each of the following sections:Section 1: KWL Chart  Before reading Chapters 1, 2, and 3, fill in the “What I Know” and “What I Want to Know” section of the following chart.  Then read the chapters and complete the “What I Learned” section of the chart*.  You will not include the KWL chart in your discussion post

  1. Download an editable copy or the KWL Chart here.Section 2: Creating Your Own Discussion Question/Prompt For your initial post, you will create your own discussion prompt based on your own research and review of the chapter readings for this week.  Your questions need to originate from one of the concepts introduced in Chapter 1, 2, or 3.  These chapters cover a variety of issues that can be further researched.  After reading, use your completed chart and chapter readings to formulate a discussion prompt. Your discussion prompt should include all of the following:
  • An opening question or statement to introduce the topic:
    • Examples: What are some subjects that a teacher can integrate into a PE lesson? OR List several academic subjects that can be integrated into a PE lesson.
  • A question or statement that requires further research or thinking on the subject:
    • Examples: Do you think that PE teachers should integrate different subjects into their lessons? If so, how do you think this will help students? If not, why would this not be a good idea? OR Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of integrating academic subjects into physical education:
  • A question or statement that requires the reader to apply it to their own situation, current or future profession.
    • Example: How would you implement academic subjects into a PE lesson? OR Give an example of how an academic subject could be integrated into a PE lesson.

Additional Tips:

  • Use words such as: compare, contrast, discuss, evaluate, explain, how, why, or why not.
  • Your prompt should be open-ended (i.e. it cannot be answered with just a “yes” or a “no” statement, a one-word answer, or a simple definition).
  • Your prompt can require the reader to do further research on the subject, such as researching a website or outside source.  

Guided Response: Review and critically answer two of your classmates’ questions. Include any resources that you found to support your answer. You can also include questions in your response that will further the discussion on the topic.

Length:  2 pages (not including bibliography)

References:  Provide at least 10 references in the Methods and Resources section of your Proposal.

Background and Scenario: The scenario for writing assignments #1 and #2 continue.

The company CEO has read your letter, calls you in to his office, and says, “You’ve provided some very good information on the business, cultural, and other conditions in the country. Very impressive! What do you think is the next step?”

You pause. “Sir, the situation in the country has pros and cons. There are some significant benefits but also some risks if we open up an operation there. I would like to do some more research and provide you with some written recommendations. I’ll need to lay out some milestones, and may need some resources, including a budget.”

The CEO smiles and says, “Exactly what I was thinking! Get a research proposal to me next week stating what you plan to focus on for a comprehensive report with recommendations on doing business in this country. And be sure to use an attractive, professional document design for the proposal, with some visuals depicting data on the country and a few photos. I’ll need to get your research project approved by the board. You will indeed need some extra resources, possibly even travel funds, to get the report done in a reasonable time frame, say about a month.”

“Yes, sir. Thanks!”

Leaving the CEO’s office, you’re pleased that your memo and letter have brought results, and you look forward to finding out more about doing business in this country. But you are also a bit worried. If you are going to get the proposal and the report completed, you need to get started right away.


Explain in a research proposal what you propose to focus on for your Business Report with Recommendations (Writing Assignment #7).

Use the format and the sections in Chapter 17 of the text (Problem, Country Overview, Audience, Topics to Investigate, Methods and Resources, Qualifications, Work Schedule, and Call to Action.

In the Methods and Resources section, list at least ten (10) references.

Use document design techniques, diagrams, photos, and other visuals to comply with the CEO’s guidance.

REMINDER: Continue to use the hypothetical company and the country you selected for writing assignment #1 (Memo with documented research).

1. Manning and Curtis state that effective delegation is an important part of multiplying effectiveness in the workplace. In your own words, explain why delegation is an important tool for a leader to use. What are some of the possible effects if a leader fails to delegate responsibilities amongst other employees?

2. You have been given a list of work duties to assign to your employees, and you want to make sure that everyone is given a task that they can complete successfully. What factors should you take into consideration when deciding which employees are assigned which duties? How can you effectively present each employee with their new responsibilities? Use concepts presented to you in this unit along with outside research to formulate you answers.

3. Everyone is different. Leaders have to consider the personality traits of every member of their team and adjust their leadership tactics to suit individual needs, but it can be a time consuming task trying to get to know each employee. As a leader, what steps would you take to understand the personalities of your employees without wasting valuable work time? Do you feel it is beneficial to consider the role of personality or would you rather divide work evenly and set a list of standards and deadlines for everyone to follow?
