Leadership Interview
Leadership Interview Instructions
Interview Overview:
For this assignment, you will be responsible for interviewing an individual you deem to be a Christian leader. This leader must be married, as you will also be required to interview his/her spouse. Spouses should be interviewed separately or in a setting where one spouse is not aware of the responses of the other spouse. You can choose the leader based on whatever criteria you deem important; however, be prepared to justify why you have chosen this individual as a leader worth interviewing.
The object of this assignment is to synthesize the components of a leader and explain how the person you chose fits into the category of leadership/ leader.

Interview Part 2: Interviewing:
You will interview the leader you chose and his/her spouse based on the interview guide. Remember, the purpose of this interview will be to assess what makes up the life of a leader. It is recommended that you record your interviews so you can listen to them again after the interview in order to reconnect with the data gathered.

Your assignment is to  SYNTHESIZE the interview and should not be submitted as a question answer response.
Submit a 6–7-page paper regarding the life of a leader using the data you gathered through the interview process.
 In this paper, you will find common themes that run through the interviews and, if necessary, quote the interviewees (make sure to use pseudonyms for all references to interviewees).
This paper must be in synthetic form rather than in comparative form (Interviewee 1’s response followed by Interviewee 2’s response).
Make sure to highlight information that the leader and spouse agree on as well as information that they disagree on.


Follow the outline below for the body of your paper; and separate sections using the headings of this outline:
1.      Leader
a.       Brief background of the leader and your justification for choosing to interview this person.
b.      Brief background of the leader’s spouse.
2.      Leadership Definition
a.       How did the leader define leadership? How does his/her answer compare with the spouse’s definition of leadership; did he/she agree or disagree?
3.      The Life of the Leader
a.       What (in the life of your leader) makes him/her a good leader? Focus on his/her spiritual life, family life, and ministry/vocational life. Consider how the leader’s impact on his/her family affects his/her success in leadership.
4.      Conclusion
a.       What did you learn about the life of a leader from this interview? Explain how it influences your definition of leadership.


This assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 6.

Synthesis #2 Assignment Sheet

Adapted from an assignment sheet created by Rich Miller, Director of Composition

Overview

The last major assignment of the semester is also the longest and requires the most work with argument and revision. I hope you are up to the challenge. This final Synthesis #2 essay must address one of five questions:

Is the solution to the negative power of words to change negative behaviors in the world (Lakoff) or simply to stop using negative words (Lawrence)? Search for sources on dehumanizing words for enemies, four-letter words, and racial and ethnic slurs. A good source to start with is
Hughes, Geoffrey. An Encyclopedia of Swearing: The Social History of Oaths, Profanity, Foul Language, and Ethnic Slurs in the English-Speaking World.

Armonk, N.Y.: M.E. Sharpe, 2006. ebrary. Web. 6 Apr. 2014.
Which should be more important to us, the pecuniary rewards of work emphasized by Krugman and Saez or the “nonpecuniary rewards” introduced, if not emphasized, by Reich (par. 36)?
Should the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Respository project be restarted?
What is Darwin's great achievement? See in addition to the assigned readings,
Klinkenborg, Verlyn. “Darwin at 200: The Ongoing Force of His Unconventional Idea.” New York Times 12 Feb. 2009. A 34.

Across the Curriculum Reader. Ed. Gilbert Muller. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2013. 295-97/711-13. Print.
Is patient modesty more important than the medical benefits of a detailed physical exam?
Include at least 7 secondary sources. Four of these 7 sources must be essays or parts of books from the Sawyer Library catalog or databases. You should also draw on readings from Graff and Birkenstein's They Say / I Say or Across the Curriculum Reader. You may certainly use items found in your Bibliography assignment or that you used in writing Synthesis # 1.

This final synthesis essay gives you a chance to really stretch your writing muscles and discuss your topic in numerous ways to persuade your reader. Of course, this is an argument synthesis so you are arguing a specific point and using sources to help your point come to light and appear logical and persuasive. Your sources will be valuable in providing examples or support for your ideas as well as counter arguments or ideas that you will shoot down or dismiss as you argue yourself.

The Assignment

Compose a 10 page/7 source argument synthesis. Remember, you must argue a position in this essay and use sources to help prove your point. I am also asking that you include a counter argument or two to show your versatility in arguing and seeing different sides of the topic.

The objective of this assignment is NOT to make you an expert in linguistics or economics or nuclear physics or evolution or medical ethics, but to give you practice in constructing an argument (your I say in response to the they say of other writers), in using a system of citation and documentation (in this case, MLA style), and in synthesizing a variety of sources with your own ideas into a coherent essay.

Composing Advice

As with Synthesis #1 you want your sources to have a dialogue and work on your terms. Do not simply support one of your sources as the only way to see something; instead, decide your approach and use the sources to help you build points. You may certainly string together points that you like from several articles and combine them into a persuasive statement of your own. This is one way to see how a synthesis builds. Your job is to conduct the orchestra and use the skills you have summarizing, critiquing and arguing to bring the reader to your point of view.

Ten pages and 7 sources might seem a monstrous task as you first read this. But slow down a minute. If you break your argument into three or four main points and build each point at 2 or so pages, you have quite a bit there. Expect a page or so for the introduction and conclusion, each, and you are right around 9 or 10 pages. So work on this essay in “chunks” and perhaps think about your sources coming in line with these chunks too. Could this mean that you are writing 3 or 4 small critique papers and then revising to make them all flow together? It could. In and out of class, we'll work on drafting Synthesis # 2 in stages.

Counter Arguments

At some point in your essay, you are required to discuss opposing points of view to your thesis. Dealing with counter arguments can be a big plus for you as you either shoot them down or acknowledge their point of view and move on. We will work with counter arguments in class discussion as well as in They Say/I Say.

Nuts and Bolts

Typed, double-space, 1″ margins. Please use Standard Written English! MLA Style and Works Cited Page please.
