COMM 318A – Spring 2014 – Real-World Application Paper (RAP) (50 points) Real-World Application Paper (RAP): Organizational communication concepts can be observed as they play out in the world around us. For the RAP select a movie (or book) where you see two organizational communication concepts played out. You will briefly summarize the movie’s storyline, clearly identify the two concepts (displaying you have a clear understanding of the concepts), and then explain how they were played out in the movie. You must use a minimum of two credible sources for your paper (course textbook and the movie/book), but you may use additional sources. Wikipedia is NOT considered a credible source. One electronic copy needs to be uploaded to Blackboard (by 11:59 p.m. CST on April 21st). The RAPs will be run through SafeAssignment (or SafeAssign) via Blackboard which verifies students are doing and submitting their own original work. v Select a movie (or book) where you observe organizational concepts we have studied in class played out. ü The movie (or book) must be pre-approved by the professor. Thursday, April 17th is the final day to have a movie (or book) approved. ü Briefly summarize the plot of the movie (or book) in your own words. If you use a source to help you summarize the movie (or book), make sure to cite the source. v Clearly identify TWO concepts that we have covered or will cover (if you read ahead you may want to address a topic we have not yet covered) that you see played out in the movie. ü Briefly explain each concept to demonstrate you have a clear understanding of the concept. Remember, even if you are summarizing content from the text, you still need to cite the text. ü After briefly explaining each concept, briefly explain how you see it played out in the movie (or book). This is similar to what is expected in RARs. v For the RAP, please include the following components: – Introductory paragraph: Introducing the movie and previewing the two concepts. – Paragraphs briefly explaining the movie, briefly identifying and explaining each concept, and connecting each concept to the movie content. – Concluding paragraph: Summarizing the movie and the concepts you selected to focus on for your analysis. v Follow the “Written Assignments” Guidelines outlined in the course syllabus. v A minimum of two credible sources is required – the textbook and the movie. However, you may use more sources. Remember Wikipedia is NOT a credible source. v The RAP should be at least two pages in length, no more than five pages. (A References page does not count as one of the pages for the paper total.) v A Reference(s) page should be attached at the end of the RAP with the sources you cite within your RAP. Grading Breakdown (Worth 50 points): v Follow “Written Assignments” Guidelines – 5 points v Introduction & Conclusion: – Introduction: Identifying the movie and previewing the concepts that will be analyzed – 5 points – Conclusion: Summarizing the movie and the concepts – 5 points v Clearly identify the following: ü Clearly and briefly summarize the plot of the movie (or book) in your own words (you do not need to describe every character, just provide enough information for the reader to understand the movie) – 5 points ü Clearly and briefly identify the concept you played out in the movie and then explain how the concept was played out in the movie (or book) in your own words. These explanations should be similar to what you have done in RARs – 20 points (10 points for each concept and movie analysis) v Page Length & References: ü Two to five pages in length (if only two pages, the 2nd page needs to be a complete page), at least TWO credible sources used & sources properly cited within RAP – 5 points Possible Movies (this list is not exhaustive*): The Social Network (2010) An Inconvenient Truth (2006) ERON: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2006) All the President’s Men (1976) *Please do not feel that you have to use one of these movies.
