Report question: Study Skills Module June 2014
On April 24 2013, a building known as the “Rana Plaza collapsed on top of garment workers inside its factories, killing more than 1,100 people and injuring 2,500. It would be known as the worst accident in the garment industry anywhere. It was later discovered that 28 brands that sourced clothes from the plaza included Primark, Bennetton, Mango, Matalan and Bonmache, prompting public concern about the working conditions of garment factories around the world which contribute to western high street fashion stores.
Ethical consumerism encourages people to think about how the products they buy are sourced and produced which are not harmful to the environment and society. This can be evidenced through simply purchasing eggs that are free-range or boycotting goods/companies which promote child labour or unsavoury working conditions.
There are a range of product areas which fall into the ethical category which includes:
·         Banking  
·         Cleaning
·         Cosmetics & Toiletries
·         Dairy
·         Energy
·         Finance
·         Fashion
·         Food  
·         Insurance
·         Soft Drinks
·         Tea industry
·         Travel

Ethical consumerism is a growing market; a recent report from the Co-operative Bank showed a third of UK consumers claiming to be concerned about ethical consumption, with a large number of the public willing to challenge and boycott companies who do not comply with ethical standards. 
Write an analytical business report on what ethical consumerism means for businesses. Choose one company evidencing how they operate ethically. This must take into account the ethics and values of the company you choose to focus on.
In your report (which must be written in business report format), you need to cover the following topics:
·         An executive summary which gives a brief overview of the argument in your report including key findings and conclusions
·         A brief overview analysis of ethical consumerism, identifying the examples of some of the products which fall into the ethical category,
·         A detailed review of one company claiming to operate ethically. Discuss the approach(es) they have used to become a more socially conscious business, linking this with the ethics and values of the company that you have identified.
·         A short opinion survey on what influences consumer buying behaviour, carried out by you from a sample of students at GSM London
·         A conclusion which includes critical evaluation of ethical consumerism based on the evidence that you have gathered both from your primary and secondary research, focusing on  one company you have chosen for detailed review

Supporting material will be posted on Blackboard, but you will be expected to undertake research using newspaper/magazine/web articles, journals and text books.

Background:
Reflection is one of the ways in which it is possible to extract value from learning experiences.  Reflection does not come naturally to many undergraduate students and is not commonly taught in earlier training and educational experiences.  This exercise is in place to encourage reflection early in undergraduate studies.

The development of self-awareness and the ability to plan for improvement in one’s own performance or Personal Development Planning (PDP) is an important skill to assist students in improving their employability.  At the end of this module students will be challenged to put in place a PDP which will take them through to the development of their final semester project.

·         A Final Self Assessment Questionnaire, completed in consideration of the Initial Self Assessment Questionnaire and Plan you undertook in week 1.
·         A reflection on your development and performance during the semester, answering the question: what have you learned about your own performance during the semester (please note the programme or module learning objectives contained in handbooks should be used as objective measures of performance)?
·         An analysis of the current situation that you face identifying behaviours which require change, answering the questions:
o   What do I need to change in order to raise the standard of my performance?
o   Why are these behaviours happening, and why are they impacting upon my performance?
·         A PDP based upon your current performance level and the developmental changes that you will make during the next 4 semesters of your course, answering the question: how will I change the behaviours that are impacting upon my performance?

Students should make use of the format provided below (editable electronic format is available from the Student Portal for this assessment.

How did the role of the atist change during the Renaissance

Answer each question with at least a paragraph long answer.
1. How did the role of the atist change during the Renaissance. Name and define the new philosophy that most likely caused that change?
2. What can you determine would have been considered so shocking or offensive about Manet's “Luncheon on the Grass” to the public? I am expecting at least 3 different examples, so plan on researching more than with your textbook AND watching the short documentary link.
3. Look at the artwork in both WWI and WWII and give two examples of artists and their art and a possible explanation as to why it would be so disturbing?
4. From Chapter 13 What qualities does the text say makes a work of art great? Page 212. In other words, why do artworks like the Mona Lisa or those of Picasso still resonate with people? Is it just that they were employing new ideas (innovation) or speaking to new concepts (humanism)? This does not have to do with the question of What is Art? rather, what makes a work of art linger throughout time?
