Here are some pointers for the rest of your term paper
1. What have you learned from our textbook? I am not looking for a critique of the text here. Also, I am not looking for definitions e.g. I do not want to read things like – “I have personally developed because I now know what exports are. Exports are……… Imports are……… (Definition taken from text)”
Also I do not want to read passages from the text in your paper . You cannot carry the text around with you for the rest of your life in case someone asks you a question about business – it is far too awkward and heavy! Instead, if someone asks you about business, you will have to ‘shoot from the hip’ and respond using your learning from the text. I will be interested in knowing how you would respond to such a person’s question as a result of having read the text
2. Write broadly about what you have learned about business in general. Imagine a friend asking you what you have learned about business as a result of reading the text book. You might respond with:
“Business is a lot more complicated that I thought. It is not just about numbers, it is also about managing resources e.g. machinery, land and especially people. The government also get involved in setting the law within which business has top operate, for example laws stipulate conditions for contracts ” For a new business, the state of the economy can be like swimming with or against the tide….”
3. Notice I have not used any definitions in (2) above. You could consult the title of each chapter and write your overall impression of the chapter.
To get started, just start writing down your thoughts on business and your learning should come out of your subconscious as a result of reading the text and your news articles. Then read back your writing and expand on the areas that trigger your thoughts. Repeat as necessary
4. What did you learn from other class members in discussions? Do people think like you or do they think differently different? What does this tell you about doing business?
5. How has looking for news articles affected you? Which articles presented in discussions were of interest and why? Will you still keep following the business news? Why? Why not? Was the news useful for learning about business? Should business keep tracking the news? Why? Why not?
6. Do you have any plans and ambitions in the business field having completed this course? Think hard. You might not what to own one (but if you do, you might write why) Maybe not, and that is fine but make sure to say why. My next question however is: How do you intend to make a living? Working for a business perhaps? Working a government department that regulates business?
7. I am interested in how you will put your learning into practice in the future.
8. There are no RIGHT answers that I am looking for, only evidence of your learning on completing our course.
9. I will be expecting good grammar and for you to use the available page length to score points.
10. You will be expected to cite research sources other than the text in your work. A research source, such as the work of a professional or academic writer is intended to support your opinions. As an example, you might write: “this class has motivated me to study business. Maslow (1947) defines motivation as “……….”
You would then reference Maslow’s work at the end of your posting. The required number of references is stated in the grading template below. You can use easybib.com or Word 2007 to compile your references for you. You can also do your references yourself. The writing desk at LBCC will help you, as will the following website: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
I am also available for help on this referencing requirement.
The term paper will be posted to the term paper discussion forum
All papers need to be spell checked. It is critical that all work is professionally presented. This means no text message writing such as incomplete sentences, proper pronouns/nouns not capitalized and run together sentences. You have free writing help at the writing desk and they even will help you on-line.
Please do not use attachments for your term paper. Post directly into the discussion message box.
