The principle activity of this Case is to complete two interactive tutorials, and prepare short essays (one or two pages each) summarizing their key points.
Essay 1: Complete the Pearson interactive tutorial, “Introduction to Business Communication.” This is referenced on the Background page as Pearson 2015a. Write a short essay summarizing the key features of business communication, as opposed to ordinary, everyday communication. Feel free to use short lists. Be sure to include a reference to the tutorial (you may copy the reference from the Background page to the bibliography of your own paper). Additionally, be sure to include a citation in the body of your paper, showing your readers where you used the tutorial. For information about references and citations, please refer to the Writing Style Guide, found under the “My Resources” tab on the TLC Portal.
Essay 2: Identical to Essay 1 above, but summarizing the contents of the Pearson interactive tutorial “Intercultural Communication.” This is listed on the Background page as Pearson 2015b.
