Response to Materials

Assignment Instructions:

  • Do not delete the questions – simply indent your answers to retain the numbering system.
  • Use a formal writing style and proofread for correct use of language.
  • Write a short paragraph for each question, addressing each of the points mentioned.

The aim is generally threefold:

  1. to demonstrate your familiarity with the course materials. Provide as much information you consider necessary to achieve this end. Cite the page number in the text where you found the information using this format: “(Mandela, 2012, p. 5)” and for films, cite the director and date e.g., “(Attenborough, 1982)” or in the case of my own instructor videos, “(Woodward, 2007)”. For the book, check what date your edition is on the front inside cover, it might be the original from 1995, or a later publication. If you have an audio book, it likely states the publication date somewhere.
  2. to think critically about issues and comment on them
  3. to self-reflect on your own development of leadership to date and potential for the future. This is considered in a much broader sense than leadership within any official position and includes day-to-day lifestyle.
