BASIC 3—BOOK 2

Time Management and Negotiation in Practice


Your classmates and you are going to write the book Time Management and Negotiation in Practice.
Each level will write a lesson of the book by answering the question from the lesson title. At the end of
the module, the teacher will put the lessons together to make your book. You are in charge of writing
Lesson 3, so you should answer the question: First Things First—How can we do that?

The exam has two parts:


1. Written Project
2. Presentation

Written Project
General Guidelines

• Answer the first question of the book you are writing. Basic 3 students are in charge of Lesson 3.
• Remember: this is your book! It should reflect your experience with the Personal and Professional
Development topics studied.
• The written project should attract the readers’ attention! Use pictures, illustrations, diagrams, tables,
or any visual aid that can make the book more appealing.
• No book is written without research. Read other books, articles, or news that may help you develop
the topic, but don’t forget to include the source! It’s perfectly OK to quote or to refer to other authors,
but it’s not OK to simply copy other people’s work.

Guidelines—Basic 3

Lesson 3: First Things First—How can we do that?


The goal of Lesson 3 is to answer the question “First Things First—How can we do that?”
In order to draw a conclusion and answer the question, divide the lesson into four parts. For each
part, there are questions to answer. It’s important to include all four parts and to have all questions
answered in the written project. Watch the PPD video as many times as you need and read the texts in
the book to help you complete your project.
