The response paper, for which you will sign up in the second lesson is a longer (800 – 1200 word) analysis of some particular element of our reading as it relates to the course. The response paper is a chance for you to delve deeply into one specific text. You are free to emphasize whatever element of the text that you choose, but you must relate that emphasis to the larger themes of the course (i.e., to issues of ethics and ethical leadership. You may not use outside sources for this assignment. A successful response paper will be well written, well edited, carefully proofread, and offer your response to the text you choose in an organized, clear, and concise manner. These are NOT meant to be stream-ofconsciousness writings or merely a list of your impressions from the text. You are free to write on whatever relevant topic from the text that you want, but you must make meaning claims about the text in a highly organized essay with a thesis that is supported throughout the paper.
