Due: Friday, July 9th, in D2L Dropbox by 11:59 pm (it will NOT lock if you’re late–don’t panic!) Last day to request an extension: end of class Thursday Length: at least 7 paragraphs; I’ll give you a template for the introduction Prompt: Our recent texts have come from very different parts of the world, but they all wrestle with ideas about leadership. Use these stories to compose an essay about the purposes (goals) of leadership. I’m not asking for leadership tips/techniques, for the GOALS of being a leader: why do we need leaders, what should leaders do, what should they NOT do, etc. The body of the essay is at least 5 paragraphs–each paragraph has one central idea, so you need to come up with at least 5 ideas, preferably before you start writing. You must use both Ramayana and Sundiata; you may also use the Viking Romances and In the Dragon’s Claws. Organize the essay around the purposes, not around the texts. The paragraphs do not need to include more than one text, but should do so when your idea is found in more than one. You might want to consider bad leadership examples as well as good ones. Counter-examples can often help you define your own ideas. Use a combination of paraphrase and quote. Not every example needs a quote–save those for when the text is defining the term you’re discussing. Otherwise, paraphrase is fine. The 5+ body paragraphs need to more than just a list–they need to flow logically from first to last. Use transition phrases to show now the topics connect. Example: connect topics like this: “Being willing to die for one’s people [previous paragraph topic] is also an example of how both time periods value self-sacrifice for the sake of the community [new paragraph topic].” The conclusion paragraph must attempt to pull all the ideas together to say something about shared ideas of leadership–are these ideas universal or culturally specific?
