Hello learners,
I want everybody to have the chance for a great grade! Here is a valuable opportunity to improve your grade and your life!
In the workplace, we often need to appear assertive and powerful, yet often do not feel that way. Consider the discussion this week, when you have to tell your supervisor you cannot cover a shift, or if you want to ask for a raise, or to be included on a specific project team–all demand you to be confident when you make your request. The following TED talk may help you access your power.
Watch the video and try the technique the speaker recommends. Then write a 500-word post addressing the following: How did the speaker’s story affect you? Can you relate? Describe the situation in which you tried the technique. How did it feel? Do you think it made a difference? Feel free to agree or disagree with the speaker’s arguments. Write a 100-word response to another learner, analyzing his/her post.
This work will add 5% to your course grade. (The way I will do that is, at the end of the course, to add about 20 points to your score on one of the assignments, until your final grade goes up 5%.)
Start a thread in the “Introduce Yourself” discussion forum. Give it the subject “TED Talk Extra Credit.” Write directly in the text box; do not put your critique in an attachment. Due Friday of Unit 10 (the last day of the course) at 11:59pm.

I hope you enjoy this and get a lot out of it.
