Question Description

Week 4 Paper: Why Do You Do What You Do?


This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin®.


Week 4 Paper: Why Do You Do What You Do?

Identify an organization and develop an organizational chart listing all the key leaders.

1. List their roles as well as discuss how their responsibilities tie to the organization’s mission, vision, and values.

2. You need to be able to validate your discussion with research. If the company you are discussing does not have readily available information for research, then you will need to choose another organization.

3. Choosing your own organization is fine, but you must show research to validate your discussion. In other words, using personal experience is not advised if it cannot be verified. This is a research assignment.

Contact your instructor if you have any questions about how to proceed.


  • The assignment should be between 3-5 pages, plus a cover page and reference page.
  • Your paper should include an introduction and conclusion that summarize the contents of the entire paper.
  • Your paper should be written in proper APA format. This link will take you to the section of the APUS library that can assist you with formatting:
  • Do not use first person
  • Abstract is not needed
  • References: A minimum of two references are required for this assignment. You may use your textbook as a reference in addition to the two references. Need at minimum 2 academic sources, then use online sources to help support your discussion if need be. Your company information should be supported with research!

***Must be submitted as a .doc or .docx file. All other submissions will receive a zero. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure proper submission of their assignment***

Hello class – To assist you in avoiding common errors, I created a running list as each error came up. Make sure you implement the feedback given in your assignments to your upcoming assignments and use this list as a sort of checklist to avoid errors with APA and writing styles.

See below for mistakes to avoid in the future.

(This message is not singling any one person out, it is merely a guide. This list is not all-encompassing).

Common Mistakes to Avoid

  1. Implement feedback from previous assignments!!!!!
  2. No research in your introduction
  3. Separate the introduction from the background paragraph
  4. No gaps between paragraphs
  5. Do not use First Person (or “you”)
  6. Avoid contractions – spell out the words “do not” “cannot” “it is” etc
  7. No research in your conclusion
  8. In-text citations go after research for both direct quote and paraphrasing
  9. In-text citations should have a publication date
  10. Punctuation goes after the in-text citation
  11. If you use headers, keep them the same format throughout your paper
  12. Do not direct copy – at the very least use direct quotation marks
  13. Only one direct quote per page – at maximum!
  14. Use Times New Roman 12-point font or Arial 11-point font
  15. Double-space your writing
  16. Indent new paragraphs
  17. Use a Reference page not Works Cited
  18. Follow APA formatting – if that means you need to explore the APA website, the Online Library’s Writing center, or other APA sources then you are expected to do so.
  19. If instructions say 5-7 pages, then 4.5 and is not 5 pages…I want full discussions with examples and correlation to classroom content
  20. Personal experience is wonderful, but not if it is a research-based assignment – use research
  21. Use academic sources! Stop searching the web and use the online library. If you do not know what an academic source is, then visit the online library resource center.
  22. No on bullet points! Using the bullet point method detracts from your ability to create transition sentences and key statements within paragraphs.
  23. Save your assignment with your name in the title
  24. Implement feedback from previous assignments – if not, you will lose additional points on your final paper. ****

Hello class – Continuing on with our quick overviews of APA formatting, please see the following on citations and references. I do FULLY expect you all to read over this information and your grade will be reflective of this expectation.

In-text Citations

APA writing style requires in-text citation as the method for attributing credit to the original source. The in-text citation should include the following information:

  • Author or authors’ last name
  • Year of publication
  • Page number (or location where the information can be found if no page number is available)

For a book source, the in-text citation may look something like this: (Guerin, 2012, p. 217).

A journal article source would easily follow the same format as the example above.

Because webpages don’t often allow for pagination, we must use some other location identifier in the in-text citation to tell the reader where to find the information that we are using in our writing. A website source’s in-text citation may look something like this: (Lutz, n.d., para. 3).

The above examples represent the basic structure and format for in-text citations in APA style. Continue to explore the Purdue OWL site to discover more information and learn more.

When do I need to cite?

Whenever you borrow words or ideas you need to acknowledge their source. The following situations always require citation:

  • Whenever you use quotes
  • Whenever you paraphrase
  • Whenever you use an idea that someone else has already expressed
  • Whenever you make specific reference to the work of another
  • Whenever someone else’s work has been critical in the development of your own ideas

When can I skip the citation?

There will be times when we may discuss a point without actually citing or providing a reference to it.

Following are some cases in which we can skip the citation.

  • When the information is common knowledge like, “There are 7 days in a week.”
  • When the information is quite general. For instance, “Some girls are tall.”
  • When the statement is subjective in nature. For example, “The play was a great success.”
  • When we are mentioning or discussing data or information already cited in our paper.
