In this assignment, you will write a short (1-2 page), opinion paper. The paper is informal in that it is based on your own experiences and opinions. It is not necessary to reference outside resources or to include a cover page or reference list. However, you should critically reflect on your personal experiences and/or apply what you have learned in the module to your current practice. Justify and explain your responses with examples and thorough explanations.
Overview: The Principle of Credibility
Our credibility is such an integral part of who we are, that we often take it for granted. But think of what it would be like to lose your credibility, your reputation.
