Unit 3 Assessment – Your Creation Myth

Your creation myth can be an adaptation of those you reviewed in Unit 3 or an entirely new approach. It can include a flood or any other component of climate. Your myth can present gods, goddesses, demigods, or any other type of mythic creature (fairies, elves, fauns, centaurs, etc.), or it can express a spiritual entity that reigns supreme on its own. The key to this exploration is for you to experience the drive and wonder found in the Humanities, even today, to explain how we came to be.


Present: your myth in story form. (2 or more well-developed paragraphs)

Analyze: the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ the world and its people were created and came to be. Think about why others should adopt your myth. (one or more well-developed paragraphs)

Reflect: On the creation of your second artifact for the Humanities. Explore how having a solid understanding of myth enhances your ability to experience art, literature, music, and most anything else at a deeper level. (one or more well-developed paragraphs).


For this assignment, you have several options. If you would like to use Powerpoint or Prezi to include images or pictures, aim for a title slide that includes your name, title of your myth, and the date, as many body slides as needed to present the myth narrative, a slide for the analysis, and a slide for the reflection.  There should not be a reference slide for this type of artifact.

You can also use MS Word for a textual presentation by aiming for well-developed paragraphs of 5 – 8 sentences. Note that your MS word document must include several images or pictures that illustrate your written statements.

Unit 2 Assessment – Creating Your Own Philosophy

In Unit 2, you learned about the origins of philosophy from regions across the world. From Ancient Mesopotamia, China, Egypt, and Carthage to Greece, Rome, and the Americas, the drive to make sense of our presence in this world is a universal endeavor.  In this assignment, you will review the components of the philosophies presented in this unit, including China’s Three Pillars, the Socratic philosophers (Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle), and the Americas (Tribal, Mayan, Aztec, etc.), and create your own ‘Life Philosophy.’ ­­

A life philosophy can be simple such as ‘live and let live’ or ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ It can be a paragraph or multiple paragraphs; whatever you need to present the core philosophy you live by or want to live by. You can adapt a philosophy (live and let live) and make it your own (live in peace and the children will thrive) or create something completely new that connects to your home or work life in a direct way.



your philosophy


the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ your life philosophy will in the future (or does now) work in your life and provide an example (this can be from a single phrase to multiple paragraphs).


how your philosophy connects to as many of the regional philosophies presented in the unit as possible, keeping in mind that the more links you can connect to Taoism or Socrates or the Mayans or Stoicism or any other expression of philosophy covered in the unit, the more universal the philosophy becomes (one or more paragraphs).


how others can put this philosophy into practice in their own lives (one or more paragraphs).


on the creation of your first artifact for the Humanities. Explore why it is important to have a personal philosophy to maintain life balance (one or more paragraphs).


You can also use MS Word for a textual presentation by aiming for a well-developed paragraph of 5 – 8 sentences for all content except the actual philosophy, which can be shorter. Note that your MS word document must include several images or pictures that illustrate your written statements.

Unit 2 Assignment – Sources of Conflict


Conflict in a work environment can arise for a variety of reasons. Values, relationship, process and task-related conflicts are all to be expected when people from different backgrounds and experience levels work together. For this assignment, you will reflect on a specific source of conflict (values, relationship, process or task-related) and explain how resolution can be achieved.

  • Provide an example of a conflict between healthcare professionals. Explain how/why the situation is classified as either a values, relationship, process or task-related conflict.
  • Discuss strategies for resolving the conflict, as if you were a manager in that situation. Include relevant sources to support your recommendations.
  • Length and format: 2-3 pages; essay
  • APA requirements: Title and reference pages, in-text citations, and two sources.

Unit 1 P.R.I.C.E. Model Applications

You are to select and interview a professional in your designated or related career field (faculty in your program of study may be a good place to start). You are to complete the interview in person or by phone. At the beginning of the interview, you will explain the P.R.I.C.E. elements to the interviewee and then ask these questions:

  • Have you seen the impact of applying these elements in your career?
  • Which element(s) is/are the most important in your career field?
  • In what situations are these elements the most challenging to utilize?
  • Would you add or subtract from this list of elements if you could?
  • Do you feel these elements are applicable for careers in this field in the future?

While you have been given the questions for the interviewee to answer, you still need to take some time to be prepared in advance of the interview.  Be sure to either take notes during the interview or ask permission and tape responses so you can remember what was said while completing the Unit 1 worksheet.

Unit 1 Assignment – Understanding Conflict Styles


The potential for conflict exists in all that we do: professionally and personally. Not all conflict is bad, nor is it inherently negative. How conflict is handled makes all the difference. Through proper identification and understanding of conflict, fair and effective resolutions can be achieved. The purpose of this assignment is to examine the different types of conflict, understand how to embrace the positive aspects of conflict, and identify how you typically navigate conflict in professional and personal situations.

To complete this assignment:

  • Complete one conflict resolution assessment tool (two links are provided below) or search online for a free conflict resolution assessment of your choice.
  • Based on the results of your completed assessment, write a 2 to 3-page reflection paper, summarizing your approach to conflict.
  • Explain whether you agree or disagree with the assessment results.
  • Provide a past conflict example demonstrating how you used the conflict resolution method indicated in the assessment results.
  • Provide a link to the source of your conflict resolution assessment tool in the reference section of your paper.
  • APA requirements: Title and reference pages, in-text citations, and two sources (one should be the assessment you completed).
