Course Project Guidelines. Each weekly paper should be a stand-alone paper with a title page, table of contents, running heading, page numbers, section and sub-section headings, and a reference section. Each weekly paper should contain the previous week’s paper. By week four, students must submit the completed paper as one word processing file in APA style. Tables, graphs and figures should be included in the appendix of the paper.

Each weekly paper should show evidence of outside research from journals and other sources, and the final paper should be minimum of 10 pages and have a minimum of 10 journal and other reference sources. Wikipedia and the text book do not count as reference sources. Again, meeting the minimum criteria will earn a satisfactory (C) grade.

I would like you to use the following main headings. The sub headings are at your discretion. I suggest you start with the main headings as an outline and fill in each section weekly.

Introduction and purpose
Review of research
Findings and analysis
Conclusions and recommendations
References

If you aren’t familiar with APA style, please check with the N.U. library-they have an excellent tutorial and handouts. Also check the following:

Course project content. I expect the content of each project will vary depending on the type of the issue researched and the interest and focus of the individual authors. However, the comments below should provide you with some general ideas. Please use these as a guide and not as an outline.

Week1 paper. Introduction.
The first step in the project is to select the small-business management issue you would like to research.

Below are some general suggestions for the format of the week 1 paper. These examples are only suggestions, not an outline. Tailor your paper to the issue of your interest.
Introduction, background, and methods. Sub sections might include:
Brief history or events leading up to the current situation
Why this issue is worth studying?
Purpose of the study. Stated in one sentence, example, “The purpose of this paper is to…” This is a research paper, so do not state a conclusion in your purpose statement. For example, “The purpose of this paper is to explain how total quality management can help small business managers” assumes that TQM will help managers. A better title would be “The purpose of this paper is to investigate TQM as it relates to small business-management and to provide small-business managers with resources to decide whether TQM is appropriate for their business.
Research methods. What will you do to achieve the purpose of your research? Methods can include one or a combination of the following:
Interviews
Observations
Review and analysis of existing documents
Review and analysis of literature and internet sites

Week 2 paper. Review of literature and resources. This section should review and summarize the relevant literature (journals, trade publications, books, etc.) and resources (web sites, consultants or other experts in the field, etc.) on the subject. If you are not fam html
http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/general/gl_annotatedbib.html

The review of literature and resources should be done in narrative form with the list of references in the Reference section at the end of the paper.

Week 3 paper. Findings And Analysis. Once the literature review is complete, you should begin the analysis. This section should derive from the review of literature and resources. The sources you reviewed should be analyzed and shown how they apply, or do not apply, to the issue you are researching. There should be an overall summary of your research and a discussion of the application of the research to your paper.

Week 4 paper. Conclusions and recommendations. The final section of the paper should build on the previous three sections and tie the entire project together. If recommendations are appropriate, they should discuss alternative strategies and should recommend one or more strategies to address the culture or leadership issue. The conclusions and/or recommendations in this section inferred from the discussions in the previous sections. This paper should contain all previous sections and should have a table of contents and section headings.

Course Project Grading. Content: 75% Substance, quality of research and documentation, quality of analysis, reasoning etc. Form: 25% Organization, writing quality, APA style adherence, physical appearance, etc.

Writing Across the Curriculum:

Students are expected to demonstrate writing skills in describing, analyzing and evaluating ideas and experiences. Written assignments in English with appropriate citations of an author’s work are required of all students. Students are encouraged to use the services of the University’s Writing Center when preparing materials. The Learning Resource Center contact information is located on the “Student Services” tab on our online course homepage. Please use this service or other means to ensure that your papers are written with no grammatical mistakes.
Writing Across the Curriculum
http://www3.nu.edu/schools/SBIM/writing.html

Diversity:

Students are encouraged to value diversity in the classroom acting respectfully towards one another and demonstrating management skills and judgment appropriate to such diversity.

Ethics:

Ethical behavior in the class room is required of every student. Students are also encouraged to identify ethical policies and practices relevant to course topics.

Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s ideas or work as one’s own, through either word for word copying of material or the presentation of facts without proper credit to the source of information.
1) Make sure that you rephrase information into your own wording!
2) If a fact is found in your paper that could not have come from your own personal knowledge and it is not cited where you gathered this information, then that is plagiarism!
Since this paper requires a large amount of data collection and research, it is perfectly natural to find many papers with citations of sources in almost every paragraph of a paper. Much of the paragraph may be your own words, but if you are including facts taken from an article you read, you are required to put a citation at the end of the paragraph or directly after the quoted or stated material. Please view the example research paper as a guide on how to properly cite sources throughout your paper.
Students found plagiarizing are subject to the penalties outlined in the Policies and Procedures section of the University Catalog, which may include a failing grade for the work in question or for the entire course. Automated online plagiarism systems are now available to all professors and make checking for plagiarism much easier now then in the past. So don’t risk it!!!

Discover the Con textMiles
Davis in Paris, France, 1964.Herve Glaoguen/Getty Images
Historical Context: In the world of jazz, 1959 was a monumental year. Three all-time classic albums were released—albums that influence American music to this day. Tracks like “Blue Rondo à la Turk” appeared on the album Time Out, in which the Dave Brubeck Quartet combined Turkish rhythms with the blues. And in The Shape of Jazz to Come, Ornette Coleman abandoned typical structure altogether. But the album with the most profound and lasting effect in jazz history is Kind of Blue by Miles Davis, which features the recording “Freddie Freeloader” that you just heard.In 1959, jazz music was continuing to evolve, and so was American society. The civil rights movement was well underway. African Americans across the nation, many of them college students, were ready and willing to protest against racial segregation in all contexts of American life. They conducted “sit-ins” with the goal of desegregating places such as department store lunch counters, libraries, theaters, museums, and other public facilities that were reserved for “Whites Only.” Like the changes that were gradually transforming the broader society, Kind of Blue ushered in a new era in jazz.The album opens with “Freddie Freeloader,” Miles Davis’s response to what he saw as the frantic, overly complex direction jazz had taken since the 1940s. Kind of Blue grew from his earlier experiments with “modal” jazz, in which simple “modes,” or musical scales, served as the background for the soloists’ melody.1 It is an album of musical meditation, mellow and understated, more concerned with atmosphere than fireworks, but it still swings and sounds undeniably like jazz. It has gradually become the top-selling jazz record of all time, and for many fans it’s the standard against which all other jazz albums are measured.Watch music instructor Jason DeCristofaro explain improvisation in the song “Freddie Freeloader.” Read Text Transcriipt Musical Context: “Freddie Freeloader” was the first tune recorded for the album Kind of Blue, and it is an excellent example of musical improvisation. Musicians improvise when they create ideas spontaneously, without planning what they’re going to play ahead of time. This spontaneous, loose feeling is exactly what Miles Davis wanted his band to capture. To do this, Davis famously gave them very little instruction at the recording session, mostly sketches and ideas, just enough so they could know the general shape of the piece. Then Davis trusted their expertise and gave them the freedom to do their own thing, or improvise.In order to improvise effectively in jazz, one of the structural elements musicians need to understand is a riff. A riff, put simply, is a musical idea that repeats. Riffs are usually short. In “Freddie Freeloader,” for example, Miles Davis plays a simple two-note riff on the trumpet. This short riff repeats over and over throughout the track. Note that the bass player and the drummer are not improvising, but rather helping to maintain the structure and to keep time for the other musicians.Watch music instructor Jason DeCristofaro explain how members of Miles Davis’s band support one another as they improvise in the song “Freddie Freeloader.” Read Text Transcriipt In addition to improvisation and riffs, another important structural element in jazz is call-and-response, which is like a musical conversation or group discussion. In “Freddie Freeloader,” the pianist listens for the riff, or call, and uses the space between the riffs to fill in the gaps with his response. Notice how every musician in the band listens to what everyone else is playing—no one plays over the others.With jazz legends such as Cannonball Adderley on alto saxophone, John Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums, Miles Davis’s band had the freedom and the experience to create a masterpiece. These younger artists looked up to Davis for guidance and inspiration, while he looked to them for their talent and innovative musical ideas. One of Miles Davis’s greatest talents, in my opinion, was his ability to assemble a fantastic band and give them the right environment to play at their best. That their individual styles came together and resulted in one of the most influential albums of all time is a testament not only to their abilities, but to the power of group collaboration to produce something no individual could possibly have created alone.
