Prepare the paper using the American Psychological Association (APA) format; this format is described in detail in the
APA Publication Manual. Grading will stress content, analysis, and style. Seek to creatively apply leadership theory. The
paper must be more than a mere review of facts and articles. It must demonstrate reasoning, by applying at least three
relevant theories and models together to analyze the topic.
The paper must be at least 3,000 words in length, not counting tables, figures, and any (optional) appendices; it must
correctly cite and use at least 10 references, NOT counting the textbook. ALL cited sources must appear both within the
body of the text and in the References list.
NOTE: for an “A” grade, the paper must use articles from at least 2 respected journals or books, such as those in the
SUGGESTED READING list. Most of these periodicals are available on line from the Troy University Library.
