Term 3 – Journal Entry #1 - Conflict Resolution
Read each scenario below. Explain how you would respond to each scenario. Each scenario is to be one paragraph.
· You are working with a partner to complete a major project. You respect your partner’s intelligence and are happy you were paired with her. You split up the tasks and begin your work. Every few minutes your partner seems to be looking over your shoulder. After a little while, your partner begins making comments about your work. She is continually suggesting that you change your work to how she thinks it should be. Eventually, it seems like she is trying to take over the project. You know she could do a good job and you want a good grade, but you want to have some input as well. What do you do?
· You are working in a group of five students (you and four others). You have been given a project description that has some “minimum guidelines,” but leaves much leeway for students to decide what they wish to produce. You begin brainstorming ideas with your group about what to create, but two of the group members keep asking why everyone doesn’t just do what’s on the “minimum guidelines” handout. The other three members of the group clearly want to be more creative and go beyond the minimum. The two students who only want to do what is on the handout refuse to do any “extra” work. What do you do?
Term 3 – Journal Entry #2 - Future Plans and Goals
· Leaders have vision and motivation. Describe your long- and short-term goals. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now? How do you plan to get there? Reflection must be one-page single spaced.
