Academic Case Study: Professional E-mail Creation

Read the scenarios below and select one (1) that is of interest to you.

a. You worked very hard on your recent assignment but were not really confident in your final product. However, you did not think it was too bad so submitted it on time. When you checked the grade book for your grade, you were very disappointed and frustrated by the grade you received. When you reviewed the grade book comments, you did not really understand them and could not determine how the grade was calculated.

b. You are working with another student on a group project and the portion the classmate submitted to you does not meet the expected criteria. You are concerned because you have worked very hard on your portion and really want an "A". You are not comfortable adding the classmate's portion to yours, but you cannot do the entire project yourself.

c. The discussion board assignment was of particular interest so you began work immediately, provided in depth supports for your thoughts, and posted early in the unit. When you went back in to the discussion board later in the week to respond to your classmates, you noticed that one of your classmates who posted after you seemed to mirror your initial post almost word for word.
