Conflict Analyst Essay Assignment Help
This month you are to write a 1,200-word paper on your own style of dealing with conflict. You will explain concepts covered in this class and how you see them related to your own life. This paper is worth 20% of your grade. As you read the text and do research throughout the class you might want to make notes of concepts that you see illustrated in your own relationships. Please use the APA format and cite at least four (4) sources. I have guidelines on using the APA format and citing sources posted in Student Resources for you. Follow the directions below for a step-by-step process.
The purpose of this paper is for you to analyze a specific conflict you have had or continue to have with a specific person. Your relationship to this person may be ongoing or in the past. You must incorporate course concepts and terminology from the text in your analysis and self-reflection.
Before writing: Section I of these assignment instructions includes questions for you to think about before writing your essay.
Writing the paper: Sections II –VIII of this assignment sheet include questions for you to consider as you write about the nature of your conflict, the role of power, individual styles, assessment, personal intervention, prevention, and possible solutions to your conflict. You may not need to answer every question in each section. Write your analysis in paragraph form, not as short answers to each question. The questions are to help you frame your analysis.
After writing the first draft:
Ask a classmate, friend, or some other third party to review your essay. This is a great time to utilize the OWL! The Online Writing Lab is a free and helpful tool for you to use.
Ask for suggestions about how to improve the paper or ways you might better manage the conflict.
Submitting the final draft:
After gathering feedback from the third party, write your final draft.
