This course will allow you to practice the forms of written communication typically necessary for employment in corporate America, such as writing inter-office memorandums, formal letters, briefs and reports, business e-mails, research, and oral presentations. Textbook: Business Communication (2008) 15e. South-Western. Methods and Classes will include instructor lecture and explanation using illustrative materials as Objectives : well as discussion and in-class writing and speaking activities. Students will successfully 1) write business documents (reports, letter, memorandum, e-mail,) to achieve logical and ethical communication response to business problems using positive tone, you-approach, and appropriate arrangement; 2) complete research report and 3) give individual oral briefings plus speak as part of a team presentation using PowerPoint slide show software. Blackboard (web-based learning system) will be used to post lecture notes, provide assignments, and communicate with students; therefore, registration is mandatory. It is strongly suggested you check your email twice a day for changes or announcements that may or may not have been disclosed in class. Attendance: Since BUS 271 is an activity-oriented course, attendance will be taken. Four or more absences will result in a 2% deduction of final grade. You are expected to be a regular, active and considerate participant during our semester together. This is not a passive, sit-and-take notes type of class. Learning comes from listening, doing, participating, and accomplishing. This also includes being a contributing member to assigned groups who depend on your attendance and participation. It is expected that each student attend every class session. You are accountable for all material covered in each class. Please do not ask or email me regarding this matter. It is recommended that you develop a buddy support system for yourself in the event you might not be able to attend class. Assignments & Make up Policy Think of this class (and all your classes) as a job. If you don’t show up for work or meet deadlines, you get fired . Absence is not an excuse for missed assignments. All assignments must be submitted in class on the day they are due . Excuses such as “I didn’t know, I got mixed up on the dates, my car would not start”, are pointless. There are NO make-ups and late assignments will have 25% deducted for assignments turned in by 4 p.m. on due date and 50% deducted 1 day late. After that, you will receive a zero. If you are absent on the day of a quiz, the day of
