this assignment will be a formal research paper. The students will choose a topic by focussing on a specific area of leadership that was contained in the course material, a specific leader, or a world event in which leadership played a significant role in its result. A written proposal must be submitted and approved by the instructor on the chosen topic. This is due in class on October 7. There is no set format for this proposal, and it is not for grading. It is to prevent duplication of topics and to narrow the focus of the students topic to a manageable level.
No papers submitted for other academic classes will be accepted. No papers will be accepted one week past the due date
Materials used must be properly sourced using the APA style of referencing. A work cited page and cover page must accompany the assignment.
