The Court Case

will be arguing one of two court cases. To do that you need to answer
the following 4 questions. Make your answers to each question its own paragraph so I know where you began and ended your answer. Check the rubric for details on how I will grade.

Here are your questions:

1. After reading one of the two court cases write, five, specific issues whose answer will allow you to make a decision if you are for or against the claim.

2. Select three of the issues and rewrite each of them into a contention. You will then have a total of three contentions.

3. State your position on the claim. How do you word your position of the argument If you are the pro side or the con side?

4. Prove all three of your contentions
using evidence and reasoning that you gathered from the court case.
Feel free to add any additional information you would like that could
prove your contentions. Remember, I will take off points for terms like “I think” or “I feel.” You need to prove your contentions not just “believe” in them.

When you cite “witnesses” make sure to quote them exactly. Don’t just summarize their thoughts.

Module 2 – Case

Global Talent Differences

Assignment Overview

Global Work Schedule Differences

The number of work hours in a week and a year varies from country to country. Some of the differences in annual work hours are illustrated in the following chart by Mathis and Jackson (2011):

Country Work hours per year
Korea 2,305
Mexico 1,871
Italy 1,824
United States 1,794
Japan 1,785
Canada 1,736
Australia 1,722
France 1,561
Germany 1,433
The Netherlands 1,392

The differences in work hours must be considered across countries. Doing so means that work scheduling expectations and policies may have to be different for an operation in different countries.

Case Assignment

  • Precision – Does the paper address the question(s) or task(s)?
