Question description

Class Discussion (45 points)

Imagine that you have been employed at a new job for the past six months. Although you enjoy the challenge of your responsibilities and you are performing well, you find that you simply cannot complete all your work during office hours.

To keep up, you have to work late, take work home, and even occasionally work on weekends.  When you explain this to your employer, she says that although she is sorry that the job interferes with your personal life, it has to be done.  She suggests that you view these sacrifices as an investment in your future and that you should try to work more efficiently.  She reminds you that there are many people who would be happy to have your position.

Think critically about this real world situation and respond to all of the following prompts in the class discussion section of your online course:

  1. Describe the situation from your employer's standpoint, identifying reasons that might support her views.
  2. Describe this situation from your standpoint.
  3. Describe different approaches that you and your employer might take to help resolve this situation. 


The minimum expectation for class discussions is to respond directly to each part of the discussion prompt and to respond to at least two other posts, either by a student or instructor, by the end of the week:

1. Submit one main post responding directly to each part of the discussion prompt.

  • This should be a substantive response to the topic(s) in your own words, referencing what you have discovered in your required reading and other learning activities.
  • You may use resources in addition to your textbook that support your post(s); however, you must mention the source(s) that you used in your post(s).

2. Reply to at least two posts. Responses can be made to students or to your instructor.

3. Responses to other individuals' posts should:

  • Expand on their ideas
  • Discuss the differences between your thoughts and theirs
  • Explain why you agree or disagree
  • To post your main response to this topic, click the blue Respond button below.
  • To respond to a classmate or your instructor, click the blue Respond button below his/her post.
