Week 1 Discussion
By the due date assigned, post your initial response to the Discussion Area. Post directly to the discussion thread; do not attach a document. If you have composed your remarks in Microsoft Word, copy and paste your response into your discussion post. By the end of week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions. Your replies to classmates should be made with an eye to expand, clarify, defend, and refine their thoughts.
In our textbook, read Erin Brodwin’s article on pages 81-82, titled “The Secret to Efficient Teamwork is Ridiculously Simple.”
In a well-developed paragraph of at least 150 words, incorporating and using in-text citations to document examples from our readings, respond to one of the questions below:
- What is Brodwin’s claim?
- What reasons does Brodwin provide to support her claim? Does she offer evidence to support it? Is support needed?
- Do you agree with Brodwin’s claim? Explain why or why not, providing your own reasoning for the conclusion you draw.
