Prior to completing this assignment, please review the final paper requirements in Module one.
For your final paper, you will be required to link a business topic to a focus area(s) in this course. Your goal is to demonstrate critical thinking and high levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Links to an external site.) by connecting your business topic to the concepts in the book. You are able to personalize your learning by selecting the areas you are most interested in researching and/or the areas that are most applicable to your industry.
BEST PRACTICE Approach:
Determine your business topic by deciding what areas of business interest you. In addition, you must select a business related topic that you can support with scholarly peer-reviewed research. I would encourage you to use Welder Library e-resources to search for peer reviewed journal articles prior to selecting your topic.
- Review the Table of Contents in the beginning of the text.
- Select the chapters that seem most applicable to your topic or are of interest to you.
- Review the chapter of interest for specific concepts.
- You are asked to submit four connections, but ultimately you will focus on one or two course connections in relationship to your topic for your final paper.
To complete this assignment, complete this quiz. This quiz is actually a worksheet and is not timed. You are allowed to access the worksheet five times so feel free to look at the questions and start to contemplate them before you provide your answers.
Throughout this course, you will work toward the final paper requirements. The final paper is due WEDNESDAY of the last week of the course, however, the first step is selecting a topic and applicable course concepts. This week your only task is to begin brainstorming! As a graduate student, you are able to personalize your learning to determine human resource concepts that are most applicable to you, your experience, and your work environment.
For your final paper, you will be required to link a business topic you select to focus area(s) in this course. Your goal is to demonstrate critical thinking and high levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Links to an external site.)by connecting your business topic to the concepts in the book. You are able to personalize your learning by selecting the areas you are most interested in researching and/or the areas that are most applicable to your industry. You will be required to support your paper with secondary research using Welder Library eresources. Reading, analyzing, and using existing research will expand your knowledge past what you have experienced or know to be true.
Final Paper Requirements
Write a 5-6 page paper that demonstrates a clear understanding of your topic and a connection to a focus area(s) in this course. You are tasked with demonstrating synthesis between the concepts. This is a scholarly paper, so you will need to ensure your paper aligns with the APA 6th edition writing style. In addition, you cannot use 1st person in this (or any) scholarly paper. It is appropriate to use personal experiences; however, when doing so refer to yourself as “the author” and not in the first person (me, I, us, we, etc…). Also, do not use “dot com” or wiki references. All sources must be from peer-reviewed journal within the last 8 years retrieved from Welder Library. Sources can be older than 8 years if they are formative to the field of study. You are expected to showcase the comprehension of your topic in relation to a focus area(s) of this class.
Below are the expectations for this assignment.
- APA 6th edition format
- Title page
- 5-6 pages of body
- 8-10 peer reviewed, scholarly references. These references must be clearly cited within the body of your paper. Your textbook can be used as a reference but must be in addition to the 8-10 sources.
- Reference page
