- Consider the methods discussed in Chapter 7: Delivering Bad News Messages in BCOM9 (pages 116-136). Armed with this knowledge, make a recommendation for which method (inductive or deductive) is the best way to deliver bad news. Defend your answer with relevant examples from our readings and/or from another source (with proper credit!).
- Locate a bad-news message somewhere on the Internet and share a link here. Discuss which method (inductive or deductive) it most closely resembles and explain why the author chose to deliver the bad news using that method. What change(s) would you make if you were required to deliver the same message to someone else?
ENG 315 Assignment
Choose one of the professional scenarios provided below:
Savannah, and Stephen work for Knowledge, Inc. (a consulting company).
While on a conference call with Tim Rice Photography (an established
client), the group discusses potential problems with a marketing
campaign. Tim Rice, lead photographer and owner of Tim Rice Photography,
is insistent the marketing is working and changes are not needed.
Amber reaches over to put Tim on â€œMuteâ€ but accidently pushes a different button. She immediately says to Savannah and Stephen that the marketing campaign is not working and that â€œâ€¦Tim should stick to taking pretty pictures.â€
Tim responds, â€œYou know I can hear you, right?â€

PSY 105 DISCUSSION
It’s time to practice your focus and memory! For this discussion, you are going to watch a video that has a memory and attention game. It is VERY important that you understand the instructions.
The memory game is going to test your memory of the alphabet and your attention. If you do not understand the instructions, then pause and replay the video before going on with the game. If you need to write out the alphabet and have that in front of you, then you can do that too.
Watch the Nat Geo Maintain Your Focus video and play along.
Be sure to write down your results!
In the discussion share what you learned about your memory. Start your discussion post by sharing how you performed. Did you get most of the words right, or not? Did you notice other details or did you miss them? What did you learn about your memory from this experience?
Your original should be at least 7 sentences and your reply should be 4 sentences.
