c. Part III (Due Unit 5) - The Case PowerPoint Presentation = 75 Points

Total Case Assignment Points = 215 Points

The following terms can be understood as referring to your Project or individual elements of the project: Case Project, Project, Case. If you have any questions about any of the terminology, please do not hesitate to ask in the Virtual Office.

6. Much of the Case Project will be an exercise in developing your skill at following instructions. Therefore, be sure to read all assignment instructions (All Units – 3, 4 and 5) very carefully before starting the writing process.

Very Important Initial Gentle Reminder: If you do not understand Plagiarism and how to avoid violating the rules of Academic Integrity, please review the tutorial in the classroom title "Plagiarism". It can be found under the "Academic Tools" tab. All written papers (and many of the Discussion Posts) will be submitted to Turnitin to determine originality of content.

In particular, do NOT simply "cut and paste" ANY content from ANY source unless you intend to use the material as a properly formatted and attributed Direct Quote. If you do not understand the rules for proper attribution of unoriginal sources, please carefully review the information available in the Writing Center in the material related to "Using Sources."

Unit 3 Case Part 1 Assignment Specifics:

Part 1 of the Case, due in Unit 3, includes creating the Title Page, Abstract and preliminary Reference List for a formal analysis paper.

But, you should preview the Unit 4 & 5 Assignment Instructions also.

The order of presentation MUST follow the grading rubric order.

You should use the grading rubric as a basic "Outline" (ie, Headings and Subheadings) for your paper. You may use the Main Rubric Parts and their sub-parts to build your headings and subheadings. The rubric is provided at the end of this document.

Be thorough! Short answers do not provide the necessary analysis or critical thinking. Be sure to complete all required rubric sections for all parts.

Important Notes:

1. Your Unit 3 Assignment should ONLY include sufficient page length to include: Title Page, Abstract, Full Paper Headings and Subheadings (for the full analysis) and a preliminary Reference List.

2. Use the APA Template provided in the classroom as the basis for constructing your Unit 3 Assignment.

As a preview: The final paper must be presented in a single Word document. The full paper due in Unit 4 must be between 6 to 8 pages in length, not including the title and reference list pages. The paper must use proper APA
