The Consultant Report asks you to look more closely at the real world scenarios considered for Application Exercises and in the team activity portion of the Unit Tests, focusing in depth on the contemporary practice you chose to research and on one corresponding Asian practice. Based on this in-depth exploration, you then advise the person described in the scenario about the contemporary practice they are considering.
Interested students who have time to delve into additional readings may earn extra credit on the consultant report by investigating sources that either
(i) provides additional information about one of the above mentioned Asian practices; or
(ii) describe an entirely different practice not yet considered in class, and locating a corresponding contemporary practice.
Such students can also add points to a Unit Test score by doing a written analysis of one of these optional sources.
