Assignment and Research

For this assignment, you will be doing an in-depth update of one of the Case Studies from your text book.  You may choose any of the case studies in the text for your analysis, but each student must do a different case study.  

1.  Read and examine the case study thoroughly.  Make notes on the relevant facts and key issues presented.

2.  Use the library databases to find at least three journal article references to use for your analysis that specifically concern the Case Study you are updating.  You are looking to update the information to current knowledge on the topic - meaning new since the text material was published.  

3.  Cite your journal article references in APA style.
