Question Description

The first part in establishing priorities in a situation or crisis is to examine why something is happening. Sometimes we do not have time to look at the “why” and just need to deal with “what” is happening and review the why later. If you do not have time to examine all factors, it is vital to start examining the why in order to establish the root causes of the situation. Doing so will help us to prevent the reoccurrence of such a crisis in the future. Prior to completing this discussion read Chapter 9 in Bush (2011).

Initial Post: Create an initial response that addresses the following:

First, identify an event that occurred within an educational setting within the last year. As you look for your current event, review several news articles related to the event. This event should be different then the one you identified last week.

Next, complete the following:

  • Provide a summary of the situation.
  • Identify environmental factors or root causes that helped cultivate the problems present in the scenario.
  • Produce an initial plan that would address these environmental factors and prevent the situation from occurring in the future. When responding to your peers, provide additional factors that they may not have considered and ways those factors would change their plan.

Your initial post should be at least 350 words.

Guided Response: Post responses to at least two classmates. In your response, reflect on your classmate’s responses. Questions you might consider in your response include:

  • Do you agree with the root causes that have been identified?
  • Is there anything missing from the proposed plan that you might include?
