Alfred Edmond’s “Why Asking for a Job Applicant’s Facebook Password Is Fair Game” (132-135)

Readings Required:  

Ch. 3: “Critical Reading: Getting Deeper into Arguments,” (74-107) 

 Alfred Edmond’s “Why Asking for a Job Applicant’s Facebook Password Is Fair Game” (132-135)  

Answer the question in 300 words or more. Organize your response in the form of a mini essay (intro, body, and conclusion).  

Make sure the thesis is clear in the introduction; the topic sentence is the first sentence of the body paragraph, and the conclusion should wrap up the overall argument of the mini essay.  

1.Employers do (at least at the time we are writing) have the right to require drug tests and personality tests. Do you think they should also legally be allowed to ask for a password to Facebook, or should Congress pass legislation outlawing the practice? If employers are legally allowed to ask, would you provide the password? Why, or why not?

re-considering your response to Todd Riley from the previous week

 

You wrote a response to Todd Riley in the previous week.  Mr. Riley had applied for a credit card with your company, FlashExpress.  However, he was 17 years old and not of age to apply for one on his own.

Please read pages 74-79 from the article, “Using Problem-Based Scenarios to Teach Writing,” by Hicks et al.  Then answer the following questions. 

1. This article provides three possible responses to Mr. Riley.  How is response #2 an improvement over response #1?  Please write two to four sentences in your response.

2. How is response #3 an improvement over both responses #1 and #2?  Does response #3 read like a “bad news” letter?  What strategy did Paula Persuader use in her response to Mr. Riley that was different from those of the two other writers?  Please write two to four sentences in your response.

3. Please describe a situation in which you had to write a message of bad news.   Without giving away names or personal information, please describe in as much detail the situation you encountered.  This could be a denial of a request from a customer, a note to a contractor that you no longer want his or her services, a message to a company indicating that you are returning a product, etc.  Did you apply any of the principles outlined in this article?  The authors in this article state that not all “bad news” situations are necessarily bad.  In Todd Riley’s situation, it was turned into an opportunity by Paula Persuader.  You might comment on whether you used this type of language in your personal situation.
