Be sure you have read Chapters 4 and 5 in your text and studied Dr. Altman’s presentations, prior to preparing this case analysis.
The link to the case in the Vantage eText is contained in this module.
Answer each of the following discussion questions giving some thought to both the information provided in the case and the text models and concepts introduced in Chapters 4 and 5. ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW (they differ from the ones in your text!) Responses to each question should be 1-2 paragraphs fully proofread with clear writing. Be sure to address all parts of each question.
Each question is worth 10 grading points. To earn 10 points per question your answer must be fully thought out, merging data from the case with concepts applied from the text to provide sound, supported arguments for your position. The grading scale you will see in the rubric for this assignment has 10 points: Excellent (demonstrates all elements – fully thought out and proofread, merges data from the case to accurately apply concepts). Based on missing elements and/or writing issues, points are deduced so 8 points is “Good”, 6 is “Needs improvement”, and 4 points is “Unacceptable”
