Assessing your Mission Statement & Strategic Plan

This is the moment when you put your efforts to the test. From your understanding of the events that transpired in Kent during early May of 1970 and of the issues concerning the Vietnam War, you hopefully created a proposal that will be effective. By placing yourself in the shoes of the involved groups, state what they would feel towards your proposal. After listing what each would like and dislike, give it a score from 0 to 4.

The Rubric:

4 - I am pleased with this proposal. I will do my part to make it work. I believe it will work or at least an 80% chance of working.

3 - I feel OK about the proposal. I am unsure & hesitant to put my effort into it. I say your chances are at about 60%.

2 - I am not too thrilled with this. If you twist my arm, then I will give it a shot. I don't think you understand how I truly feel. Unfortunately, I think you only have a 40% chance of making it work.

1 - Thanks for the effort, but you may be asking for more trouble. I think you neglected my current situation and the proposal does not look to improve upon it. I give it a 20% chance of being effective.

O - No way! No how! This will definitely tick off the people more.
