University of Phoenix


In Week 1, you identified a problem in your professional discipline. This week you will incorporate the scholarship piece of the SPL Model by providing background to the problem and including peer-reviewed scholarly literature to substantiate that the problem exists.

Locate two peer-reviewed scholarly articles (published within the last five years) from the University Library that address the problem. Visit Doctoral Writing Resources and under Argument Construction, review the information under ‘Research’ and ‘Integrating and Synthesizing Literature’ for information on how to begin researching a topic and information on how to move beyond analyzing and summarizing articles.

Create an analytical framework; a matrix to use as you analyze the articles, and analyze the two peer-reviewed articles. You will add to the analytical framework next week. Append (place in the appendix) the analytical framework document to your executive summary template to show your analytical work.

Revise your statement of the problem from Week 1, based on your instructor’s feedback.

Write 1-2 new paragraphs providing a brief description and background of the problem you identified in Week 1 using the scholarly articles to support the existence of the problem. Use scholarly voice.

***For information on scholarly voice, visit Doctoral Writing Resources and read the information under ‘Scholarly Voice’.

Support the existence of the problem using evidence from the two articles you located. Address the articles directly, summarizing their major arguments and salient points to support that there is a problem worthy of scholarly study.

Include in-text citations and an APA formatted reference page.

***For information on citations and reference entries, visit Doctoral Writing Resources and view the PowerPoint presentations under ‘APA Tutorials’.

Insert the discussion into the Executive Summary Template where appropriate.

Format the title page and body of the paper using APA guidelines. Using the Executive Summary Template will ensure proper formatting.

Place your analytical framework as an Appendix to your paper. Using the Executive Summary Template will ensure proper formatting.

Analytical Frameworks An analytical framework is a tool to use when analyzing and organizing information according to various criteria. The framework provides a structure in which to build information while researching on a specific topic in preparation for writing a paper. Below is an example of an analytical framework using the criteria of different leadership styles and topic of leadership characteristics. While reading materials, you can place important information about the topic in the corresponding cells along with citations for easy referencing when you begin writing the paper. You will also want to provide the references at the bottom for easy referencing when writing a paper. Example using a Word table Criteria Autocratic Leader Servant Leader Visionary Leader Topic Leader – follower relationship Exchange occurs when leadership provides commands. Followers not included in important decisions (Akor, 2014) Persuasion and influence instead of controlling and commanding. Mutual commitment towards the leader’s vision. (Greenleaf, 2002) Committed and loyal leaders interact with larger groups. Articulate and create visions to provide meaning and purpose (Chemers, 1984) Communication Decide and implement processes without follower input. Fewer people involved in decision-making process. Empower followers to make decisions for the good of everyone. Lead by example and utilize management systems/programs. Shared beliefs and values are consistent with the company’s strategy Change management process Force followers to complete tasks without question. Expect automatic compliance. Committed to professional and personal growth. Leaders give followers skills and resources to efficiently complete tasks Educate and train future leaders. Influence groups of people to elevate the group’s status. Employ 360 feedback and utilize socialization programs. References Akor, P. U. (2014).

If you find that your paragraphs have more than one main idea, separate your paragraphs so that each has only one main point. The idea behind a paragraph is to introduce an idea and expand upon it. If you veer off into a new topic, begin a new paragraph. E - Evidence or Examples Your main idea needs support, either in the form of evidence that buttresses your argument or examples that explain your idea. If you don’t have any evidence or examples to support your main idea, your idea may not be strong enough to warrant a complete paragraph. In this case, reevaluate your idea and see whether you need even to keep it in the paper. A - Analysis Analysis is the heart of academic writing. While your readers want to see evidence or examples of your idea, the real “meat” of your idea is your interpretation of your evidence or examples: how you break them apart, compare them to other ideas, use them to build a persuasive case, demonstrate their strengths or weaknesses, and so on. Analysis is especially important if your evidence (E) is a quote from another author. Always follow a quote with your analysis of the quote, demonstrating how that quote helps you to make your case. If you let a quote stand on its own, then the author of that quote will have a stronger voice in your paragraph (and maybe even your paper) than you will. L - Link Links help your reader to see how your paragraphs fit together. When you end a paragraph, try to link it to something else in your paper, such as your thesis or argument, the previous paragraph or main idea, or the following paragraph. Creating links will help your reader understand the logic and organization of your paper, as well as the logic and organization of your argument or main points. Reference Duke University (2006).

Integrating Scholarship




Integrating Scholarship
As identified in the week 1 assignment, the greatest problem is that technology keeps
on evolving day in day out and the educators are reluctant to adopt into the new technology
because of some ethical concerns and other issues (Bulman & Fairlie, 2016). Teaching the
students new skills in new technology will enhance their learning capabilities and will make
learning more fun.
Most of the students own smartphones and they know how to operate them; they as
well spend a lot of their time online mostly watching or reading materials that are not adding
value to them (Collins & Halverson, 2018). These smartphones should be utilized well through
the help of a tutor who should teach the students unique and exciting ways they can use their
gadgets to acquire useful informati...

Really great stuff, couldn't ask for more.
