Part Two Instructions: As the second part of your critical thinking exercise for this module, within document titled: Prewriting, Summarizing, and Paraphrasing add “Summary” right after your prewriting/brainstorm. Your task is to summarize the following group of paragraphs from the textbook Business Scenarios:

Last year – just before the start of the new school year – MU received another top ranking – The College and University Review named MU as the #1 party school. Seeing the ranking as irresponsible because it gives students a distorted notion of what it means to party on a college campus, the American Medical Association characterized the quote “party school” ranking as irresponsible. And while university administrators weren’t too happy with the ranking, MU student Janie Adams commented, “The bar scene at MU offers students the chance to socialize-hang out with friends, wind down after a day of classes… So I think the ranking is great.”

This kind of attitude has universities concerned because alcohol use continues to be widespread at many U.S. institutions of higher learning. In a recent study from more than 55,000 students on 132 college and university campuses, more than 72% of college students said they had used alcohol at least once during the past 30 days; more than 84% said they had used alcohol at least once during the past year (as cited in Schultz, 2006, p. 98).

One mother whose college-aged son died in an alcohol-related incident said, “If someone had told me that every year or so someone dies on campus, I would’ve had to think twice before it’s sent my child there.”

After talking about these measures with those at the meeting and addressing how the MU might respond to its own situation, President Harrison created the Alcohol Awareness Task Force made up of students. President Harrison asked them to research, develop, and propose solutions that address the drinking culture at MU.

Summarize in your own words the previous statements into one paragraph that is four to six sentences. HINT: Cite it like this: Your summary (Schultz, 2006).

Part Three Instructions: As the third part of your critical thinking exercise for this module, open the Word document titled: Prewriting, Summarizing, and Paraphrasing and add this “Paraphrasing” title right after your summarizing. Your task is to paraphrase each individual sentence below and cite each one in CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.

  1. Original – “If you incorrectly assume that all readers or listeners are experts in your field, you will create problems for yourself as well as for your readers” (Gerson & Gerson, 2010, p. 67).

  2. Original – “So far computers cannot substitute for complex forms of communication because they require the ability to interpret information within a context” (Jerald, 2009, p.58).

    Paraphrase & cite –

  3. Original – “The fundamental shift has brought a host of challenges not just for today’s managers, who have to ensure that their teams perform across significant distances, but also for the remote worker who has to stay motivated while aiming to meet targets away from the hustle and bustle of an office” (Evans, 2010, p.28).

    Paraphrase & cite –

  4. Original – “Our research suggests that a global mind-set, in which people see themselves as part of an international network, helps provide an environment that is conducive to dispersed teams” (Siebdrat, Hoegl, & Ernst 2009, p. 68).

    Paraphrase & cite –

  5. Original – “Benefits of collaboration include developing critical thinking skills, discussion and consideration of ideas, and social skills development ” (Kieser & Golden, 2009, p. 42).
