I think it important to take into account the manner in which our cases are written. There are always at least two sides to a story when it comes to a conflict between at least two people. For example, the case that we read in class really focused on the negative tone that the professor set by interrupting the speaker.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
