Students will select an organization that has been featured recently in the news (or another suitable organizational topic) to make an argument about organizational communication using course concepts. Each student will prepare a short essay of 1,500-2,000 words for each case study. Each case study should pose a research question, describe and analyze data, and offer a conclusion to their initial research question.
Students should compose their essay using APA formatting with an interesting introductory-paragraph, a clear thesis statement and preview, clearly-organized paragraphs of 3-5 sentences with internal summaries and transitions, and a concluding paragraph that reiterates and summarizes the thesis and main points. Written work must be proof-read.
