Week 4 Discussion 2 – Franklin D. Roosevelt Junior High School

Week 4 Discussion 2 

The Vignette at the beginning of Chapter 7 gives some insights into Robert’s focus on collaborative leadership in a learning community at Franklin D. Roosevelt Junior High School. After reading this vignette, respond to the following questions:

  • What are some indicators that lead one to believe that this principal welcomes the ideas of his staff and values what they bring to the table?
  • Imagine if your first position as a principal were in a school where the former principal had not encouraged shared leadership, and you wanted to see that transformed. How would you set about changing the school climate to get others on board? What kinds of obstacles might you need to overcome?

Discussion 4 Leadership and Organizational

Discussion 4 Leadership and Organizational
Part 1: Post a Response

Motivation is the psychological process that arouses and directs behavior. There are three theories that will help us understand the motivation of employees in the workplace.

1. Goal-setting theory – Suggests behavior can be motivated with specific, challenging goals that are obtainable. The key to goal-setting theory is ensuring employees understand what is expected and accept the goals.

2. Self-efficacy – Is the belief “I Can/Can’t Do this Task.” Self-efficacy is the belief in one’s personal ability to do a task. There is a lot to be said to scoring high in this trait. People who are confident about their ability tend to succeed, whereas those who doubt their ability tend to fail.

3. Reinforcement theory – Explains how behavior can be altered by administering positive or negative consequences to actions of employees. Behavior with positive consequences tends to be repeated, and behavior with negative consequences tends not to be repeated.

For this week’s discussion, I want you to take a moment to think about what it would take to motivate you to achieve your goals at work, and what it would take to motivate people that you’ve worked with, or your family or friends, to achieve their goals.

· Of the four areas of study listed above, which would you focus on first?

· Make sure to explain why you chose this area, and why it would take precedence over the other areas.

Ethics In Communication


Woman typing on a computer keyboardIn this activity you will be gathering research about ethical theories to support your final research paper topic. You will summarize and evaluate your research by compiling a bibliography of sources you plan to use for your paper.


For this assignment, you will gather research from at least ten credible sources that will support your final paper topic and provide a theoretical framework for ethical communication. Your instructor has provided a course bibliography of many books that either focus on ethics and ethical communication or contain information about communicating ethically in interpersonal, organizational, public or media settings. You may choose to select up to five books from this course list as sources for your paper; however, you must locate at least five additional resources from scholarly articles, professional publications, credible websites, or newspapers to support your research topic. Wikipedia and personal blogs are not considered credible sources. Please refer to the library tip sheet on how to perform research for your topic. After you have located your ten credible sources, you should write a 50-word summary and evaluation for each, identifying the points you want to include in your final paper as well as stating how the source is relevant to the final assignment. Summarize in your own words, but do not quote directly from the sources unless you are using a definition. This activity aligns with module outcome 3.


Writing Requirements

Organize your bibliography in alphabetical order according to the title of the primary author’s last name. If the author is not identified, then alphabetize the source according to the title of the article or website.

Below each source in your bibliography, insert your 50 word summary and evaluation for that source.

Only definitions may be quoted. All other information must be in your own words.

The completed bibliography should be a minimum total of 500 words.

Content Requirements

The bibliography should include sources that provide information about an ethical theory or theories that will support your paper topic.

The bibliography should include sources that support a focused topic in ethical communication rather than a general discussion of ethics.

At least 2 sources discussed in the paper must be outside sources rather that those already identified within the course materials provided.
