COLL148 Week 5 Leadership Outline,
In Week 3 you began the process of developing your Course Project by brainstorming a list of people who are leaders somehow related to your field of study and who might be good role models for you in your quest to become a leader in your career field. By this point you should have selected a role-model leader. Now you are ready to start gathering information and putting together your actual Course Project (due Week 8).
You will need to do some real research to gather information on the required elements as we explore the topic of leadership. Using the library databases (LexisNexis, EBSCO, ProQuest, etc.), you should identify and gather information from at least three good research sources. Use what you learned from your textbook (Chapter 5) and the Week 4 class discussion to help you find good sources.
Since this project is not just a biography of some famous person, you may only use one source from a biography database. Research to find and gather information on how your leader worked to become a recognized leader and how this person has demonstrated leadership in the field. You must also find information on the definition of leadership and key leadership skills, the role of individual accountability as it relates to leadership, and the process you might follow to develop leadership skills and become a leader.
For Week 5, you are to prepare an outline with a title page and a references page. This assignment will be scored out of 100 points. A thoughtfully-prepared outline will help you organize all of your ideas and establish a framework for your well-supported, meaningful research project.
Your outline should be one to two pages long and should cover all required elements of the project in a logical manner. Each body section of your outline must include cited, researched support from quality sources found in the academic databases.
You must use at least three sources now, though you will most likely use more in your final project since you are continuing to research and learn.
You must also include an APA-formatted title page and a references page listing all the sources you cited in the body of your outline.
Use the model and template in this document to help you decide what to research and how to write your properly APA formatted title page, outline and references page. Your outline can be similar to the model, but you should rewrite it in first person. Substitute the words and phrasing in this outline with ideas that reflect an overview of your project and the details you will include. EX: Change II. Your program area and intended career field to II. My Program: Justice Administration; My Career Goal: FBI Agent. You may add lines or condense sections in the model outline as you see fit.
