Students will select a movie or television show with organizational themes/settings to make an argument about organizational communication using course concepts. Each student will prepare a short essay of 1,500-2,000 words for each case study. Each case study should pose a research question, describe and analyze data, and offer a conclusion to their initial research question.
Students should compose their essay using APA formatting with an interesting introductory-paragraph, a clear thesis statement and preview, clearly-organized paragraphs of 3-5 sentences with internal summaries and transitions, and a concluding paragraph that reiterates and summarizes the thesis and main points. Written work must be proof-read. Work that does not meet the above standards will be returned to the student for revision, at a 15-point deduction.
