A Comparison-Contrast Essay                   Fall 2014

________________________________________

Comparison-contrast writing is based on one of the most common thinking strategies that people employ.  By writing these essays, however, you will learn to apply

systematically an approach that you have, no doubt, used intuitively.

________________________________________

For this project, write a comparison-contrast essay (600-800 words) that, once again, has some connection with your field.  Consider these kinds of possibilities or

develop a set of topics on your own:

•    Two supervisors

•    Two teachers of similar courses in your major

•    Two practitioners in your field

•    Two sub-specialties in our field

•    Two working environments

•    Two journals in your field

•    Two conferences or organizations for people in your field

________________________________________

•    Follow MLA guidelines for manuscript form (see Beacon 550-52).

•    Save your assignment as a Microsoft Word document (.doc or .docx).

•    Submit the assignment to the appropriate Blackboard dropbox.

•    The essay will be evaluated on (1) the selection of “equivalent” subjects, (2) the articulation of a useful thesis statement, (3) the presentation of useful

distinctions, (4) the arrangement of your discussions, (5) the quality of the descriptions and explanations, (6) the value of the insights to be gained, and (7)

technical matters.

Preventing and Addressing Problems

| September 12, 2014

Preventing and Addressing Problems

Problems in human services organizations do not arrive in labeled packages with clear instructions on how to solve them. It is up to human services administrators to

identify problems and strategies to address them. It is important to consider the steps or actions that human services administrators can take to address problems. It

is also important to consider what an administrator can do to prevent problems from occurring initially.

For this Application Assignment, view the “Structural Framework: Authority and Supervision” video script that is attached and select a problem in human services

articulated by one of the human services administrators. As you read the video script, think about the responsibilities of human services administrators in solving

problems. Consider how the administrators used supervision and/or authority to address the problem. Finally, consider whether the administrator might have prevented

the problem.

The assignment (2–3 pages):
* Briefly identify the human services administrator you selected from this week’s video script.

* Describe the problems associated with the administrator you selected from this week’s video script.

* Describe the responsibilities of the human services administrator related to the problems he or she outlined in this week’s video script.

* Explain how the administrator used authority and/or supervision to address problems in his or her organization.

* Explain whether the administrator might have prevented the problem and, if so, how.

* Share an insight about the role of human services administrators in preventing and addressing problems in human services organizations.

Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list for all resources,

including those in the Learning Resources for this course.

Business Management

| September 12, 2014

Business Management

The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered in your paper are:
•Step One: Research Web and library sources that would give you the kinds of data you would need to conduct a Porter Five Forces analysis. Use the Kraft Foods Group

(and thus, the foods industry) as the basis for this SLP. Note: We are not looking for sites that describe the Five Forces, but sites that will provide you with data

that you will be able to use to conduct your own external environmental analysis (e.g., to analyze the degree of competition in an industry, or the ease of

substitution). You have undoubtedly run into such websites and publications before in your core courses. Typically, they are government sources providing statistical

data, industry or trade magazines or journals, general business publications, finance websites, websites for trade associations, etc.
•Step Two: This is a two-stepprocess: ?Determine what kinds of information you would need to evaluate each of Porter’s forces (see the background materials), and then

find a source that will give you that information. Find a minimum of one or two sources for each of Porter’s forces.
?Research Web and library sources that would give you data to support a PEST analysis. Find at least one or two sources for each PEST variable.

•Step Three: For each source you have given above, provide a title and a URL (if applicable), and write a sentence or two explaining what information is provided by

the source and how the source would be useful in conducting an external analysis, and critiquing the source (e.g., what are the strengths and limitations of the

source)?
•Note: There are no length requirements for the SLP, however, you must address the above requirements precisely (two sources for each Porter and PEST factor), and you

must critique the validity of each source with adequate depth.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Your paper will be evaluated using the following five (5) criteria:
•Assignment-Driven Criteria (Precision and Breadth): Does the paper fully address all Keys to the Assignment? Are the concepts behind the Keys to the Assignment

addressed accurately and precisely using sound logic? Does the paper meet minimum length requirements?
•Critical Thinking (Critical Thinking and Depth): Does the paper demonstrate graduate-level analysis, in which information derived from multiple sources, expert

opinions, and assumptions has been critically evaluated and synthesized in the formulation of a logical set of conclusions? Does the paper address the topic with

sufficient depth of discussion and analysis?
•Business Writing (Clarity and Organization): Is the paper well written (clear, developed logically, and well organized)? Are the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary

appropriate for graduate-level work? Are section headings included in all papers? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of responding to the

Keys to the Assignment, or is justification/support instead conveyed through excessive use of direct quotations?
•Effective Use of Information (Information Literacy and References): Does the paper demonstrate that the student has read, understood and can apply the background

materials for the module?  If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by student’s use of relevant and quality (library?) sources? Do

additional sources used in paper provide strong support for conclusions drawn, and do they help in shaping the overall paper?
•Citing Sources: Does the student demonstrate understanding of APA Style of referencing, by inclusion of proper end references and in-text citations (for paraphrased

text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Have all sources (e.g., references used from the Background page, the assignment readings, and outside research) been

included, and are these properly cited? Have all end references been included within the body of the paper as in-text citations?

Tips and Suggestions
•Brint.com is an excellent business search engine that can help you with all aspects of the SLP assignments for Modules 2, 3, and 5.
•You may be concise in your presentation of this SLP. It does not have to follow the conventions of a written Case paper. Tables or bulleted lists may help you present

the information concisely and make it easy for the reader to quickly grasp the information.
•Some people find this SLP assignment easier to conceptualize if they have a particular company in mind. This is fine, because the sources you find for a given company

will probably have information for other companies as well. Just be sure you keep the analysis focused on factors that will affect the entire industry—not just a

specific company.
•Include a cover and reference page.
•Include section headings for all papers longer than two pages, but do not use headings as “space fillers.”
•Cite and reference all sources, including those you paraphrase. This means include citations and quotation marks for direct quotes of more than five words, and

citations for information you have “borrowed” or paraphrased from other sources.
