Prepare and submit a detailed outline for your final paper. This outline will help you to organize your thoughts and to create a paper that readers will find easy to understand. This assignment presents an opportunity to organize your ideas in a logical sequence and to develop evidence to support your writing.
Use the “Organizational Communication Project Outline Template,” linked in the Resources, which was derived from an earlier edition of the Shockley-Zalabak text. You will not write paragraphs at this time. Your outline should provide brief answers that will be further developed in the writing of the paper. Be sure to include your references (as per the last criterion in the scoring guide)—from the text and other outside sources—to support or explain your thoughts.
