In the Systems Theory and Action Research assignment, you will submit a paper and a PowerPoint presentation. While the paper provides a mechanism to demonstrate writing for an academic audience, the purpose of the Power Point presentation is to develop a skill base of excellence in designing and preparing presentations for boards, special interest groups, classes, or any constituency that may have an interest in the topic or field of study being investigated.
Your paper MUST demonstrate a thorough analysis of a systems theory, action research, and a proposal. The PowerPoint presentation should summarize the information in a way that would be understandable to someone who had not read the paper.
