Carnatic Music and the violin
Ethnography is derived from ethno meaning culture or people and graphy referring to something written. This paper will be an analytical description of a cultural setting, cultural event, or subculture based on field research. Field research means that you will attend and/or participate in a live performance, and your observations will be the basis of your paper. Your field research should take place in a culture outside of your own. Emphasis is on this field research.
PAPER: Your paper should be (a minimum of) 4 pages long, typed, double-spaced and grammar/spell-checked. It should be carefully written with full citations of your sources using footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography. Failure to submit a professional-looking paper will result in a lower grade. You may include audio/video recordings, photographs, interview transcriptions, or other supporting materials, identified and itemized after your bibliography

Jazz Music

Jazz Music
From the choices provided below, select a jazz musician for your paper of 600 to 800 words. You will be writing about the historic jazz style represented by this musician, as well as his or her individual performance style. An abundance of choices will allow you to write with genuine enthusiasm about one of your favorites. (Please note that we have excluded Miles Davis and John Coltrane from the list–they are simply too popular to include on the list.)
For the musician:
discuss the general characteristics of the historic jazz style;
describe the individual stylistic characteristics for which the performer is known;
select one piece that features a notable performance and provide your observations from listening to the piece;
provide a conclusion that offers insight into the artistry and significance of the piece and performer you have selected.
This assignment is an extension of the work you have been doing on the discussion boards. Topics questions can serve to guide your own investigation of the piece you have selected.
The one caveat is to make sure that you select a recording that is not assigned listening–be it recordings on the lesson pages, the discussion boards, or on the Unit listening lists. As far as that goes, there are several more lessons before the end of the semester. There is one remaining discussion board, and there are recordings on the Unit 5 Listening List (that will be presented in Lessons 13 and 14). These recordings–and all recordings from Lessons 12, 13, and 14–are also off limits. The remaining lessons are available to you, so that you can check to make sure that your selection is not a recording from the lesson pages. In addition, here are the recordings on the remaining discussion board, along with those on the Unit 5 Listening List:
Discussion Board #10 recordings:
Miles Davis, “Bitches Brew” (Miles Davis), New York, August 19, 1969
Miles Davis, “Sivad” (Miles Davis), Live at The Cellar Door, Washington, DC, December 19, 1970
Weather Report, “Birdland” (Joe Zawinul), Hollywood, 1976
Weather Report, “This is This” (Josef Zawinul), Los Angeles, CA, 1986
Chick Corea, “Steps – What Was” (Chick Corea), New York, March 1968
Chick Corea, “Now He Sings, Now He Sobs” (Chick Corea), New York, March 14, 19 and 27, 1968
Return to Forever, “Spain” (Chick Corea), London, October 1972

Unit 5 Listening List:

Historic jazz recordings have become very easy to purchase online as mp3 downloads. If you don’t already have the recording you have selected, an mp3 purchase is a very reasonable and affordable way to obtain the recording.
In the header for your paper, be sure to include:
The artist you have selected
The title of the piece
The year of the original recording
Other performers on the recording

case analysis process

case analysis process
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The case analysis process provides a diagnostic methodology for analyzing business and management issues, and it is widely used to help students acquire important analytical and problem-solving skills. Cases are generally descriptions of real events and are intended to provide a realistic explanation of the conditions and situations surrounding those events.
ASSIGNMENT
All groups must produce a comprehensive business report based on a case assigned to your team by the instructor.
GROUP PROJECT GUIDELINES
1. Teams will be assigned.
2. Your report should be 20-25 typed double-spaced pages (report Body and Executive Summary; not including Cover Letter, ToC, References, and Appendices) using APA format (see the Library and http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/).
The names and signatures of all group members should appear on the letter of transmittal.
3. The members of the group should allocate the workload evenly among themselves as you will all receive the same grade, subject to adjustment as noted below.
4. It is expected that all team members will contribute equally and will behave in an empathetic, helpful and collaborative manner.
5. In extreme cases of dysfunctional conflict among group members, you may pursue one of two possible remedies: (a) voluntary separation from the group or (b) removal of non-performing members.
(a) Voluntary Separation
One or more members of a group may choose to leave the group and form a new group. If you choose this option, you will still be required to submit a completed project on the due date specified in our class schedule. No special consideration will be given to group members who decide to separate from their groups (i.e. grades will be allocated based on the quality of the project regardless of the size of the group).
If you intend to separate from your group, you must inform the other group members and the instructor IN WRITING NOT LATER THAN WEEK 8.
(b) Removal of Non-performing Members
After consultation by the instructor with all group members, a non-contributing member may be expelled by a group. To remove a member, the other group members must inform the instructor of performance-related problems on or before WEEK 8. Generally, the non-performing member will be expelled from the group. However, depending on the circumstances and solely at the instructor’s discretion, a non-performing group member may be placed on a performance contract to ensure their participation in the project.
* NOTE: Students who are removed from a group or displaced as a result of a voluntary separation must still submit a paper by the due date if they wish to receive a grade.
REPORT FORMAT
The report must be well-organized, well-written following APA writing standard and should include all of the following sections:
1. Cover Letter- assume you are Management Consultants hired to analyze a company. Attach a brief letter to the front of your report thanking your client for giving you the opportunity to be of assistance, and offering your services in the future.
You must use an appropriate business format for the cover letter, Refer to http://www.career.vt.edu/jobsearchguide/coverlettersamples.html
See sample cover letter below.
2. Title Page – include the name of the project, names of the authors, the instructor’s name & date of submission.
3. Table of Contents – be sure to list page numbers.
4. Executive Summary (WRITE IT LAST) – summarize the key points of your report in 1 page and place it immediately after the Table of Contents. Remember this is your chance to catch the attention of the company executives (i.e. CEO). You want to compel him/her to read on.
5. Main Body – five sections of the main body as described below.
6. References – cite all reference materials used in your report.
MAIN BODY
The main body should contain the following five sections:
1.0 ldentification of Key Facts
* A brief overview of the company, its objectives (if known), its product or service, key individuals, relevant industry variables, current situation, and any assumptions which help clarify the facts.
