Organizational Communication
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.

Instructions:
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
