Class Discussion 9:16 AM
In-class case discussion, case 11: The Case of The Killer Phrases (A) which can be found on page 820 in your textbook. To provide a solid foundation of the direction the discussion was directed in the following questions were asked:

"Summarize - what are the facts?"
"Who are the stakeholders?"
"What is the issue?"
"What evidence does he/we have?"
"What assumptions can be drawn about motive?"
"Is this really an ethical issue worth pursuing?"
"Who should Professor Stevens contact first?"
"Should a student's motive/circumstance matter?"

There is a follow up to this case, Part B if you would like to look it up and read it in your textbook. This would be for your own personal learning.
