    High School Practical Living/Vocational Studies OR   Welding Employability   Michael Shares a Secret           Michael arrived at work early one morning for his job at a furniture distribution warehouse. When he entered the building, he saw his supervisor, Doug, in his office. The office door was open, so Michael stepped inside to say good morning. It was then that he noticed that Doug was checking out a dating Web site.           Doug looked startled when Michael entered and quickly shut down the computer. He laughed nervously and said that he had reached the site in error as he searched for the Web site of Love’s Furniture Company. Michael said he could see how that could happen and left the office. He felt a little embarrassed since he knew Doug was married.           However, later that morning Michael decided to share what he had seen with a group of coworkers during their morning break. He embellished the story and made it seem like his supervisor was actively searching for a date. He conveniently left out how Doug said he had reached the site in error. All his coworkers had a good laugh. As Michael walked away, he saw Doug standing within earshot.     Please answer all parts of the question.   A.       Who is responsible for the confrontation?   B.      How could Carlos have handled the situation differently?     SCORING GUIDE 4 Student gives correct answers for parts A and B.  All explanations are clear and complete.  There is evidence of clear understanding of the concept.   3 Student gives correct answers for parts A and B.  Explanations are correct, but possibly unclear.  There is less evidence of clear understanding. 2 Student answers 1 (A or B) part of the question completely correct.   There is some evidence of understanding. 1 Student gives only parts of correct answers.  There is little evidence of understanding. 0 Response is totally incorrect or irrelevant (does not add any new information to the question) B No response
