You are required to prepare individually an ESSAY on the below given question.
Essay question:
“The led must not be compelled; they must be able to choose their own leader.”
Albert Einstein
“No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.”?
Abraham Lincoln
Why are some leaders more powerful that others? Is there one “best style” of leadership or does it depend on who is following? Do women followers prefer a different leadership style than men followers?
An essay requires a thesis statement, a body of argument and evidence and a conclusion. A thesis statement is responsive to the question – identifying the topic of the essay, indicating a “position” with regard to the question, and suggesting the line of reasoning which will be developed in the essay. The body of the essay develops and supports the thesis – makes points in support of the thesis and supports those points with evidence (for example, expert opinion, examples, anecdotes, data, research findings, etc.). The stringing together of quotes is not a line of reasoning nor is jotting down points under sub-headings. Sub-headings in an essay are a convenience, but an essay can – and must – be able to be understood without them. It is your responsibility as the author to ensure that your line of reasoning and your evidence are comprehensible to the reader; it is not the reader’s responsibility to do your thinking – make your connections – for you. Also, be aware that the material presented in the body of the essay should be explained and critically evaluated, whether quotes, data, summaries of research, examples, anecdotes, etc. Finally, an essay has a conclusion which draws together and summarises the ideas and line of reasoning presented in the essay and makes some meaningful statement with regard to the thesis as it has been developed in the essay.
In effect, the parts of the essay are responsive to the following questions:
Thesis statement: What is your short answer to the question?
Body of the essay: How do you arrive at that answer? What is your line of reasoning and your evidence for it?
Conclusion: What should the reader conclude from what you have presented?
Assessment guidelines for Essay
Essay assignments are assessed on three major aspects:
1. Content
Have you read and understood the issues and concepts raised in the assigned materials in the textbook and from other sources you may have found? You demonstrate this by raising and critically discussing these issues and concepts in your assignments in response to the questions asked. It is expected that you will cite many, if not all of the relevant assigned readings in your assignment.
Readings are assigned to raise issues and concepts considered important from an educational point of view (they provide you with tools of analysis, evidence, comparison) and/or from practitioner point of view (they raise topics of importance for the current and future management of staff). You are expected to address them.
2. Analysis
Are you able to use evidence (examples, data, research findings, etc.) to explore critically the concepts and issues and draw appropriate conclusions? Please note that use of quotes is often regarded as very weak evidence.
If you use your own workplace as an example or if you are asked to write in a context of your own organisation, please be advised that markers are less interested in a description of your workplace situation than in your ability to apply the concepts and issues to that workplace. In other words, focus mainly on the issues and concepts, not on your workplace. This part is very important for your level of study and hence a very high weightage is allocated.
3. Presentation
Before submitting your assignment it is advisable to review it. Have you written an essay or report? Do you develop points in a clear and logical fashion? Can your line of reasoning be followed? Are your citations and references in proper format? Have you corrected spelling and punctuation errors? Have you written in non-discriminatory language?
It doesn’t matter how much effort you put in on an assignment if the product is unsatisfactory. The only way markers know if you know something is by your ability to communicate it clearly. It is your job as the writer of the assignment to communicate what you know. It is not the job of the reader to try and figure out what you mean.
A good test of whether or not your essay is well written and addresses the question is to ask someone to read it and tell you what the question is you are attempting to answer. If they cannot identify the specific topic, it is likely that you haven’t answered the question. Also ask them to explain what they saw as your major points and conclusion. If they cannot identify these, it is likely that you haven’t accomplished what you set out to do. Further, you should ask them if the evidence persuaded them and the line of reasoning you offered to support your conclusions. If not, then it is likely that you have not supplied satisfactory evidence and/or not developed a satisfactory line of reasoning. For those of you uncertain about what is required in an essay format, you will find numerous books in any university or public library on this subject.
It is suggested that you read several of the assigned readings for how the author presented his/her line of reasoning as well as for what s/he had to say on the topic. How did s/he tell you what the article was about? How did s/he develop the line of reasoning? How did s/he move from one paragraph to another smoothly? What sort of evidence was presented to support each point? Was the evidence credible? How did s/he directly support his/her point? How did s/he deal with information or evidence that actually contradicted or did not support the point? How did s/he conclude the article?
