Topic: While Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were superior national leaders, everyday persons also take on the responsibilities and risks of leadership, as illustrated by Robert, The blind man, in Raymond Carver’s “Cathedral”. On the other hand, Lieutenant Jimmy Cross in Tim O’Brien’s “the things they carried” believes he has neglected his duties as the leader of his platoon.

 If you were conducting a leadership workshop for your college or local community, how could you use these four individuals to illustrate key points of your presentation? What other examples—contemporary or historical, fictional or factual—might you use to illustrate leadership qualities?

 In doing so, consider the Core Value of Integrity emphasized in this course. This assignment asks you to address qualities of leadership. What is the relationship between integrity and leadership? Please include in your writing your own definition of Integrity and whether those in leadership roles are assumed to have (or demonstrate) integrity.

 

Please use these strategy questions as the professor is looking for them to be addressed in the writing.

Do you have a lead-in to “hook” your reader? (an example, anecdote, scenario, startling statistic, or provocative question.)

How much background is required to properly acquaint readers with your issue?

Will your claim be placed early (introduction) or delayed (conclusion) in your paper?

What is your supporting evidence?

Have you located authoritative (expert) sources that add credibility to your argument?

Have you considered addressing opposing viewpoints?

Are you willing to make some concessions (compromises) toward opposing sides?

What type of tone (serious, comical, sarcastic, inquisitive) best relates your message to reach your audience?

One written, have you maintained a third person voice? (no “I” or “you” statements)

How will you conclude in a meaningful way? (call your readers to take action, explain why the topic has a global importance, or offer a common ground compromise that benefits all sides?)

 

I wanted to make the instructions clear so I am not penalized when it comes to grading.

All paragraphs should have a topic sentence and supporting sentences explaining one idea and not multiple ideas.

Things I got hit on, on past papers on here.

 

Intro

Opposition

Supporting argument

Conclusion
