Project #53447 - Homeland Security Class - Topic: Chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological, or explosive training drills or exercises

Students will write a 1500-1700-word Research Paper on the following topic: 

 

·         Chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological, or explosive training drills or exercises 

 

Students will select and submit their paper topics to the Dropbox no later than 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 3.

 

The paper will include the following: 

(1)   An overview of the subject 

(2)   Major relevant points relative to economic, social, and/or legal implications; or, the impacts due to the lack of attention paid to the economic, social, and/or legal implications

(3)   A discussion on how your subject relates to the Saint Leo core values of excellence and integrity. Examples of questions that you should ask yourself include:  

a.     Is there a commitment by any of the members of the organizations to achieve excellence and live their mission while delivering on its promise? How so?

b.    Does anyone pledge to be honest, just, and consistent in word and deed? How do you know these things?  

c.     What are the indicators of their integrity or lack of integrity?  

d.    What can you take away from what you have learned?  

 

The paper must include a running head, page numbers, cover page, abstract, body, and reference page. References must be cited (in-text) using the APA format. A minimum of five references are required, with no more than two from Internet sources. Do not use Wikipedia references or similar type references in your paper. Additional grading criteria will include clarity of presentation, quality of content, mastery of content, care and attention to detail, organization, originality of presentation, and the value and interest of the presentation, as well as proper grammar and punctuation. The paper should consist of your original work. You are required to use no more than 15% of others’ quoted work when completing any assignments within this course of study. Your research paper must therefore be 85% original. Final papers are to be submitted to the Dropbox no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 6. (This Dropbox basket is linked to Turnitin.)

 

Your paper will be assessed using an individual grading rubric, which is on the next page for your reference. This tool and process helps students identify and the instructor measure the key points necessary to successfully complete written assignments. 

 

Important notes: 

·         Points will be deducted for non-APA formatted papers. APA format and style information is available via the course Resources section. 

·         All work must be completed using Microsoft Office products. Word Perfect and other similar products will not be accepted due to “read” and “compatibility” issues. Rich text files (.rtf) are also acceptable. 

·         No previously-submitted papers, articles, reports, or projects, in whole or in part, to Saint Leo University, or to any other university or college will be accepted. Violation of this will make you subject to referral to the Academic Standards Committee for self-plagiarism.
