As preparation for the final research paper, formulate a theory about the correlation between measurable independent variables (causes) and one measurable dependent variable (the effect). Be sure to have at least two independent variables for proposed research paper. The topic proposal should include the following four items which serve as the foundation for the final research paper after instructor feedback is given.
1) Purpose Statement
In one paragraph, state the correlation and identify the primary independent variables.
State the correlation as in the following:
“The dependent variable _______ is determined by independent variables ________, _________, ________, and ________.”
Identify and defend the “primary” independent variable, or the variable believed to have the strongest impact on the dependent variable:
“The most important independent variable in this relationship is ________ because _________.”
2) Definition of Variables
For each variable, write a single definition paragraph talking about the variable. Paragraphs should be in this order: dependent variable, primary independent variable, and three independent variables.
In addition to defining the independent variables, defend why each determines the dependent variable.
For the primary independent variable, at least two research sources that discuss the variable also must be cited. These sources need not be technical documents but should contain evidence to justify the relationship between the primary independent variable and the dependent variable. List these sources in the Works Cited (reference) page.
Note: Citations from encyclopedias, Wikipedia, blogs, abstracts, or non-governmental websites are not acceptable research sources.
3) Data Description
For each of the variables, at least 30 observations of cross-sectional or time-series data must be obtained. Thus for the final research paper, a data matrix that is at least 30 rows by numbers of variables must be presented.
In one paragraph, identify the data sources and describe the data (i.e., which government agencies supply the data, which methods are used to compile them, when they were collected, etc.).
4) Works Cited Page
The final page of the proposal should be a Works Cited page listing the two research sources for the primary independent variable and the data sources, with a separate citation for each table of data, including specific table numbers for each of the sources.
you will discover overlapping themes characterizing these theories and approaches, including similar sets of competencies that define and describe the behaviors, values and principles that guide leaders in all disciplines.
Among leadership competencies common to most theories and approaches to leadership, you will likely find references to “persistence,” “dependability,” “follow-through,” “accountability,” and “determination.” Effective leaders hold themselves personally accountable for setting vision, direction and goals for those with whom they work and for achieving results through others. Followers look to leaders for guidance and focus, and effective leaders are able to role model the principles, practices and values they believe will help move a group of followers to achieve desired results. This means that leaders must be prepared, well-organized, structured, and systematic in their approach. This requires effective management of time, tasks and priorities.
For the first part of this Discussion Forum assignment, consider the requirements of leaders in your own discipline or field of study. What are the expectations for and challenges of managing time, tasks and priorities? What observations have you made of successful leaders in your discipline or field of study? How do these successful leaders demonstrate that they are prepared, well-organized, structured and systematic in their approach? Now consider your own journey as a scholar. What challenges do you expect to face in being prepared, well-organized, structured and systematic in your approach to graduate studies? How will you ensure you are able to be successful as a scholar in the face of competing demands for your time and attention, including demands from work, family, and social obligations?
As you prepare your response to the second part of this Discussion Forum assignment, discuss the strategies you currently employ to manage time, tasks and priorities. Incorporate new ideas of how best to manage time, tasks and priorities by incorporating information from sources you find in the library or online. Start here:

Your initial post should be at least 300 words. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings by Day 7. Each of your responses to your classmates should be at least 100 words in length, and should expand on a point made by your classmate, pose a pertinent question about your classmate’s posting, and/or debate an opinion or fact presented by your classmate. Support your initial post with references to at least two different academic sources.
Before embarking on the study of history, having some discussion about what history is can be useful. To most people, the definition of history is simple – it is what happened in the past. But, it is really not that simple.
Consider these quotations about history:
History is the lie commonly agreed upon. (Voltaire) Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past. (George Orwell) Historians rely heavily on the accounts of eyewitnesses in order to draw conclusions about the past. You have already written an essay in which you interpreted a primary source. In doing so, you have seen some of the difficulties faced by historians. In analyzing Christopher Columbus’s thoughts, you have examined the narrative provided by one eyewitness. Ask any police officer about eyewitness accounts, and you will quickly discover how three people seeing the same event will see three different things. Like Columbus, the police officer’s eyewitnesses are subject to biases, self-importance, or a desire to manipulate perceptions.
So, the job of a historian (and a history student) is to wade through biases and find some meaning in what is being said in the primary sources. For this discussion, you are asked to consider the process and meaning of history. That is, can history provide us with what might be considered a “truth” about the past? If history is an interpretation of the past, can the past be changed? Can we completely trust those who give us accounts of their experiences, and what are the implications of that for our understanding of the past? And finally, is history more about the present or the past?
Your initial post should be an in-depth response that addresses all the questions and issues involved. After you make your initial posting, respond the posts of at least two of your classmates.
Please complete the assignment by the date indicated on the calendar. The postings of other students will remain hidden until you upload your initial posting. Once you upload your posting, you will be able to see the postings of other students.
