Essay E (& IR#7)
Cases 25 and 26 both provide examples of
intergroup relations between subsets of people. In
Case 25, the core group and quality support group
are distinct subgroups, as are the associates and
advisors. In Case 26, the flight attendants and
cockpit crew form distinct subgroups.
ASSIGNMENT: Drawing on BOTH packet readings
for the week AND Forsyth Ch. 13, analyze conflict
and cooperation among these subgroups using the
framework of intergroup relations. The task of this
final essay is to demonstrate your ability to integrate
research findings and theoretical concepts in
analyzing cases of actual groups. Be sure to draw on
BOTH packet readings AND Forsyth in your
analysis. You may also cite material from the guest
lecture by Rothbart.
Individual response: Should address some element of this assignment, based on the packet reading that you have and any further division of labor agreed on by the group.
NOTE:You need to cite each of the three sources at least *once*, but you don't need to connect each one to both cases.
