Essay Paper Instructions

You will discuss assigned questions for the Module/Week.

· Answers to questions must be supported with research and citations. It is not unusual, for instance, to have 3–4 citations per paragraph in doctoral-level research.

· Remember also that writing a research paper, especially at the doctoral-level, requires you to weave in ideas from numerous sources and then in turn synthesizing those ideas to create fresh insights and knowledge.

Specifics:

· 12-14 pages of content, double-spaced

· Must include citations from all readings and presentations for the assigned module (including the Fischer presentations and readings) and at least 20 scholarly sources

· Must include Biblical integration (the Fischer sources will help to that end)

· Current APA format

· Define the term statesmanship and explain its relevance to effective and ethical public administration.
