Does the body of the paper discuss the point or points identified in the introduction that the writer indicated would be discussed?Were these points actually discussed or simply “mentioned”?

For your final exam,want you to discuss what you feel are the three most critical elements that a leader must master within the organization for the company to be successful. Note that am looking for answers much deeper than saying s/he has to implement a strategic plan, motivate a workforce, etc. While those things are important, one might argue that those are outcomes of leadership. Bringing out supporting things from the text gets me really excited

Include information from the book.

This is the format below:

Complete the text portion in Times-New Roman font, with 1” margins and 12-pitch type, single-spaced between lines and double-spaced between paragraphs. You should use page numbers for each page of text.

Each question should be a separate document.

The last page of the text of each question will be a reference page (Wikipedia is not a credible source for graduate research).

Write in 3rd person, only (in other words, do not use words such as “I”, “we”, “you”, “our”, etc.).

Use proper citing methodology. For example, you may use either MLA or APA formats.

You must cite your sources within the body of the text.

You will NOT be required to use footnotes.

Paraphrase the question and place at the start of your answer (bold type, single-spaced).

Follow the rubric below:
Quality of the Introduction

Does your introduction set up the topic to be discussed in an effective manner? This suggests that the writer starts off the introduction with some general statements about the topic, adding in a few facts concerning the topic (specifically, facts that might share with the reader why the topic may be important and/or of interest to the reader), and SPECIFICALLY states to the reader what the paper will discuss. Typically, a good introduction should be around 6 – 10 sentences.

The introduction should begin with a general, informative lead in sentence. The next several sentences might provide a definition of the topic, as well as general information about it to capture the reader’s interest. The last sentence or two should specifically set out what specific things or idea the paper will discuss.

Body of the Paper

Does the body of the paper discuss the point or points identified in the introduction that the writer indicated would be discussed?Were these points actually discussed or simply “mentioned”? Think of it this way: If you are discussing three points, for example, your body really should be like three “mini-papers.” Illustrations and use of examples are highly encouraged. NOTE: If you elect to include a graph or exhibit in your answer, you MUST thoroughly discuss the contents of the graph or exhibit. You have to assume your reader may not have a good grasp on the idea you are presenting.

A guide for you might be that each point have around 3 paragraphs. One paragraph might be a general paragraph discussing the point in general, another paragraph might be one in which facts and figures (i.e., more specifics than the first paragraph) are integrating into the discussion, and another paragraph that might present an example. Sometimes, the first two paragraphs could be integrated but make sure you have a good bit of material here to convince me.


Does the conclusion provide the reader with a summary of the information discussed in the paper? As with the introduction, the conclusion should be approximately 6 – 10 sentences. Don’t just say that the paper talked about point 1, point 2, and point 3. Say specific findings that were presented. You are trying to reinforce the case you are making to convince me.

Overall Writing

Included in this would be a determination whether or not the writer actually followed instructions listed above, how well the various sentences were constructed, whether or not there were any grammatical mistakes and/or misspelled words, and whether or not cites were used consistently and properly throughout the paper.
