I don't think we can actually give a technical definition of truth-at least not one that can be used to verify the truth of statements. Truth is just a label we attach to those of our beliefs that we hold very
strongly, and different people have different processes for evaluating beliefs and attaching the label.

1. Morris writes, "Truth is just that mapping of reality that corresponds to the way things are" (p. 28). Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not?

2. "What's true for you may not be true for me." This is the basic attitude of relativism. Explain in detail why such an attitude could be very harmful in a working environment.

Professional Development
1. How does the respect for truth or the lack of respect for truth impact the organization you are currently working for (or an organization you worked for in the past)?

How does (did) the leadership of the organization manifest a respect or disrespect for truth and what impact does this have on other employees?

2. Can lying to an employer or to an employee ever be justified? Explain why or why not.

Issues to Consider
1. Morris believes that honorable collaboration with others will help bring about greater accomplishments than individual competition can produce. Provide a few examples from your own business experiences to either support or dispute Morris' position.

Important information about Presentations

Details: The ability to understand the attributes of both the presenter and the audience is critical to a presentation. The objective and the target audience are so closely intertwined that you should consider them coexisting variables. In fact, the message is buried in between the speaker and the audience. Additionally, the physical properties of the setting and the purpose of the presentation, also dictate key design and topic decisions. In this unit, you will learn about the Rhetorical Triangle, the speaker, the audience, and the situation.

For Unit 2 Individual Project, it is essential that you complete your reading assignments, especially the Course Materials. You will find Course Materials on your virtual campus in the column below the heading Interactive Learning. When you click on Course Materials, a screen will open, and you should click on the tab "Unit 2 Multimedia Course Material." Make sure you view the video presentation. The video presentation will provide you with an explanation of the Rhetorical Triangle. HINT: To do the Unit 2 Individual Project, you will need this explanation of the Rhetorical Triangle and the three elements that makeup the Rhetorical Triangle: The Speaker, The Audience, and The Situation. You will also need information from your readings of both the Munter and Rutledge textbooks. Each slide will need speaker's notes. Be sure to use APA formatting to cite your sources in the slides and to develop your References list.

Beware: The AIM Triangle is NOT the Rhetorical Triangle!

Imagine you have been asked to prepare a presentation with speaker's notes on the Rhetorical Triangle covered in the Unit 2 Course Materials for the following group of students:

Audience: Fifty students who have neither seen the Course Materials nor read the readings for this unit.

Topics: The Rhetorical Triangle, the speaker, the audience, the situation

Rhetorical Triangle: The dynamic relationship among the speaker, the audience, and the situation is known as the Rhetorical Triangle. The rhetorical triangle is comprised of three primary elements: the speaker, the audience, and the situation. The shape and form of a presentation is driven by these three primary elements.

The Speaker: The actual individual speaking
The Audience: Who will actually be attending in addition to those who may not be present but will be influenced by or have access to the content of the presentation
The Situation: The purpose of the presentation as well as the location and the social/cultural backdrop of the presentation.
Create a simple 5-10 slide PowerPoint presentation with speaker's notes that will relay the key points of the Rhetorical Triangle to students who do not know anything about the rhetorical triangle. Your presentation should contain the following elements:

Bulleted lists or Numbered lists
Appropriate Slide Background

2-3 pages MS Word file (.doc or .rtf ONLY)
Details: Imagine you have a meeting with the CEO and other high ranking officers of a company that invests in distance learning start-ups. Your objective is to obtain a loan for a distance learning company that you would like to start. Fortunately, you have a mentor to whom you can turn for help.

Using a business-like tone and format, compose a 2-3 page letter (Word Document) that would be suitable to send as an email to this mentor. Address the following so that your mentor can be of assistance to you:

Analyze the audience (be creative and imagine who the CEO and other officers are).
This means answering the questions: What would be important to this type of audience? What would they be most interested in learning from you? Or, per page 5 in the Munter book, answering the questions: Who are they? What do they know and expect? What do they feel?
State the objectives for your presentation.
"As a result of my presentation the audience will..." and "identifying exactly what you want your audience to do, say or know as a result of your talk."
List topics that will be covered in the presentation
