Learners:

 

This announcement item concerns discussions activity for this course (see pages 1-3 below).

 

Discussions are a very, very important aspect of your learning experience.  A high level of effort will improve for instance, not only your analytical skills, but also you will enhance your understanding of the many conceptual facets pertaining to the field of public administration.

 

Please adhere to the following presentation format of your discussion in each Unit:

 

  1. Introduction

 

(Maintain these headings for each section – it helps to inform the reader as to the various sections pertaining to the set of arguments/points that you are making in terms of your overall posting).

 

  1. Topic Area A (you may label this topic as you see fit)

 

(In this area you will begin to present your argument and/or contention regarding the discussion query.  Be aware of the underlying need to support your arguments/contentions with references from academic sources – you should, at the very least, utilize a reference from the text as well as an academic source — Wikepedia is not considered an academic source).

 

 

  1. Topic Area B (you may label this topic as you see fit)

 

(In this area you will begin to present your argument and/or contention regarding the discussion query.  Be aware of the underlying need to support your arguments/contentions with references from academic sources – you should, at the very least, utilize a reference from the text as well as an academic source — Wikepedia is not considered an academic source).

 

 

 

  1. Topic Area C (you may label this topic as you see fit)

 

(In this area you will begin to present your argument and/or contention regarding the discussion query.  Be aware of the underlying need to support your arguments/contentions with references from academic sources – you should, at the very least, utilize a reference from the text as well as an academic source — Wikepedia is not considered an academic source).

 

I have identified three topic areas – this is an example, however you may need to include more or less depending upon the nature of the topic.  At the very least, you must have 1-2 topical paragraphs per post.

 

 

  1. Analysis

 

(In this area you present your analysis regarding the posting query; this is an important area in that you display your critical thinking abilities and comprehension concerning the particular subject matter relating to the field of public administration.  Be aware of the underlying need to support your arguments/contentions with references from academic sources – you should, at the very least, utilize a reference from the text as well as an academic source — Wikepedia is not considered an academic source).

 

 

  1. Conclusion

 

(In this area you summarize the points you raised as well as provide a concluding statement.  This area should “tie” the various elements of your argument/position in the most efficient manner possible).

 

  1. References

 

In this area you will identify those references you utilized for the purposes of your posting.  It is imperative, and to reiterate, that your references must be in APA format.

 

Here is an example of a proper APA posting:

 

Agranoff, R. (2004). Another look at bargaining and negotiating in intergovernmental management. Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, 14(4), 495-512.

Barnard, C. (1972). The functions of the executive. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press.

 

(Be aware of the underlying need to support your arguments/contentions with references from academic sources – you should, at the very least, utilize a reference from the text as well as an academic source — Wikepedia is not considered an academic source.  That said, you need to adhere to the directions pertaining to the nature of the posting for the particular Unit.)

 

A final note: Please read the directions to the posting for each unit.  At the very least, adhering to the components of the above reference format will present a coherent, well thought out posting such that you apply your critical thinking skills in the most effective manner possible.

 

Should you have any questions regarding this matter then please feel free to contact me via my phone and/or email.
