Now that you have learned a little about the impact of social class on criminal behavior. Choose ONE from the following activities to pair with the theories presented in the social structure discussion of Chapter 6
1)  Open the Game of Life link (see Segment 2 block) and read the instructions. Download the activity handout and complete the game. Be sure to read the Social Process Chapter before attempting to complete the DB. Post your responses to the reflection questions at the end of the Game of Life Activity.

2) Human trafficking is a crime largely against women and children. Watch this informative video on a campaign to help end this trafficking. http://www.enddemandnyc.org/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.  You can also view a short video clip about sex tourism in Cambodia:http://video.msnbc.msn.com/dateline/4039097#4039097 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.    Feel free to do more research on child sex trafficking (share links with us for extra points). How does social structure theory explain the role of social class in sex trafficking? How does one’s social class make them more vulnerable to victimizations of violence? In the case of the child sex slaves, how does the concentration effect exacerbate sexual exploitation? Which one of Merton’s social adaptations can you apply to the sex traffickers? Which applies to the sex slaves?
Your original post should be 200 words minimum.

Are there problems with integrity tests as part of the screening process ?

Discussion Question #1:
1)  Imagine that you are a first-line manager of a department in a relatively small hospital located in a semi-rural area. For many months there had been rumors of a possible merger with another semi-rural hospital half again the size of yours located about 12miles away. Both administration and the board of directors had been declining to comment on the rumors although it was apparent that some kind of negotiations were underway. In about mid-November all managers were officially notified that the merger would take place effective the first of January. The two hospitals were to become a single corporate entity with two locations, and functions and services would be consolidated wherever practical. Describe in detail the possible effects of the merger and all that it entails on you and your position.
2) It is stated in the chapter that the three ways of getting employees to implement change are: Tell them what to do; Sell them on what must be done;and Involve them in determining the substance and direction of the change. For each of the three means, describe an instance in which it is a preferred or even essential approach and an instance in which it is an inappropriate or perhaps even harmful approach.
3) If you were hiring a new employee in your work unit, how would you rank the importance of the following qualities?  That is, how much weight would you assign to each in making your decision? Explain.

Personal values (ex. work ethic and integrity)
Individual intelligence
Conscientiousness in performing the job

Some employers use integrity tests as part of the screening process.  Are there problems with integrity tests? Can you test for integrity?
If you were a work unit supervisor, which of the following do you think is more important to improving organizational performance?  Explain.

Encouraging employees to participate in work and organizational decisions

Setting clear, challenging work goals

As a manager you realize the supervisors who report to you make errors when they rate their employees (e.g., too lenient, rate everyone the same, etc.).  You notice a consultant is offering a training session on how to avoid appraisal rating errors.  How successful do you think such a course would be in eliminating these errors?
As a supervisor, if you asked or surveyed your employees about the importance of pay as a factor in making job decisions,do you think employees would over-state or understate its value to them?

Describe the ways in which needs, behaviors, and rewards may interact.

Recall a situation in which you and your co-workers or fellow students were highly motivated and effective.  What motivation theories help you account for this high level of performance?

THEORIES OF MOTIVATION
Supervision requires an understanding of the complex needs that affect individual performance. These needs have been categorized and explained in a number of ways. At the broadest level, motivation theories are grouped as content theories, which have specific motivating factors, and process theories, which are content-free and describe the ways in which needs, behaviors, and rewards may interact. We will first review the three most common content theories of motivation, followed by a discussion of the most popular process theory: expectancy theory
