Description Details Attached Files (1)
Assignment type : Research Paper
The course requires a final research paper in lieu of a final exam. This assignment box is for submission of your final research paper. Separate assignment boxes are set up for submission of the two required draft papers for this assignment.
For this assignment you should select an industry((REAL ESTATE)) in which they have a personal interest. The goal of the research paper is to develop a well-reasoned and analytically supported response to the following questions:
If Jeremy Rifkin is correct in predicting the impact of a third industrial revolution, how will the selected industry be impacted by the transition to a “near zero marginal cost society”?
If Naomi Klein is correct that the need to address climate change “changes everything”, how will the selected industry be impacted by a warming planet, on the one hand, since a certain amount of warming is inevitable, and by efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change and reduce the release of greenhouse gases, on the other?
The final paper should be a minimum of 3000 words (10-12 pages, double-spaced, in 12-point font). It should include a title page, a brief introduction, final versions of the Industry Analysis and Individual Analysis sections submitted earlier, and a brief conclusion identifying the main implications of the research and questions or issues that, from your perspective, merit further consideration.
A rubric for assessing the final research papers is included in the assignment guidelines posted to myCourses and appended below. You will receive feedback on your drafts of the paper, due on November 6 and November 27, respectively. However, only the final version of the paper will be graded.
Papers must include a title page, brief introduction, the body of the paper, and a brief conclusion. Papers should be double-spaced and a minimum of 3000 words. The body of the paper may address the two main themes in separate sections, divided into an “Industry Analysis” section and an “Individual Analysis” section. However, you also reorganize the material so as to present it in the way that best supports their argument and conclusions. You are encouraged to use headings and subheadings to organize your paper. You must support your analysis by citing relevant and reliable sources. In-text citations should be in the APA style. The appended list of references, properly formatted, should include at least fifteen books, journal articles, magazine articles, newspaper reports, company reports, or publications by think tanks, nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, or intergovernmental or transnational institutions.
In general, good final papers will draw on the material covered in the course, material covered in other courses, academic research, and other relevant sources of information. They will clearly articulate the challenges facing companies in the selected industry as they respond to potentially transformative changes in the global economy, as a result of both technological innovation and the potential impacts of climate change. Good papers will explore how these changes are likely to impact the social and political context in which businesses operate, and what changes companies in the industry may need to make in response. Finally, good papers will reflect on these changes might impact directly on you and on your future personal and work-related choices, career direction, or social and political identity. Good research papers will also, and of course, clearly document their sources of information using the APA style and will be well organized and of appropriate length; written in clear English that is generally free of errors; and demonstrate an understanding of the conventions of academic writing.
