As stated in the syllabus, the integrative paper should be organized around the steps in Kotter and Cohen’s The Heart of Change. In other words, discuss how the concepts in the textbook and course overviews are consistent or inconsistent with Kotter and Cohen’s key themes and their reasoning. As you move through the text and other assignments, take notes and outline the connections between Kotter’ and Cohen’s book and the textbook as they occur to you. This will make writing a paper considerably easier and improve its organization and quality. Given the number of principles and concepts that you could relate, the key is to identify and discuss only the most important concepts relevant to the assignment. By having eight weeks to organize, write and edit the paper, you will be expected to produce a high quality, graduate-level product. The paper must be a maximum of be 7-8 pages of text/content and follow APA format. You will need to write concisely, edit well, and clearly organize your thoughts. Students must create their term paper in a Word document format, and submit it as an attachment to the Integrative Paper Assignment. Term papers created in a format other than Word are often not compatible with the web classroom, may not be readable by your instructor and will not be accepted. The below general requirements must be followed: The work presented must be original and exclusively yours and cited with in-text citations per APA; (The TurnitIn tool will be used automatically to check all term papers). The paper must be of graduate level caliber, with proper grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, spelling, paragraphing, pages numbered, etc.; and for the 7-8 pages of content/text, there must be three sections to the paper that are clearly identified (in bold font). The sections are Introduction, Discussion, and Conclusion. There must also be a cover page and a References page which are NOT part of the 7-8 pages. Grading will have a one (1) point deduction for every three (3) errors, a one (1) point deduction for not citing references and a one (1) point deduction for submitting more than the maximum number of pages. Be sure to proofread, use grammar and spell check, and proofread again. Please follow APA style writing per Webster University policy.
