Part 2: identify a contemporary government or non-profit sector leader and provide a one paragraph biography for review and approval by your Instructor. Note: the Instructor may reject the selection based on non-relevance for the course topic. Selection of an alternative leader will then be required. You may NOT select Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for your Final Project due to upcoming classroom content and discussions.
Next, identify at least 10 scholarly references to be used in your Final Paper. Each of your scholarly references must have been published within the last 5 years. These scholarly references should be related to your leader or some aspect of the leadership traits/analysis/recommendations intended for your Final Project. Limit the use of textbooks. Resources provided in the classroom, such as journal articles, books, and web-based materials do NOT count in the required 10.
Complete the Reference List in correct APA 6th form and style. Review this week’s Learning Resources containing an APA template, tips, and examples of a reference list.
