Title: Servant Leadership Thesis


1
Servant Leadership Thesis Research Questions
  • Students are to develop at least five questions
    about Servant Leadership that can be answered
    through the research articles and other sources
    assembled for the Servant Leadership research
    paper. These questions are the basis for a thesis
    statement that will serve as the focal point of
    the Servant Leadership research paper. For this
    assignment, students should submit a thesis
    statement and at least five questions along with
    a proper APA cover page and references page. 2
    additional sources, beyond the three articles
    from the previous assignment, should be properly
    listed on the references page.

Thesis Statement
  • Determine what kind of paper you are writing
  • An analytical paper breaks down an issue or an
    idea into its component parts, evaluates the
    issue or idea, and presents this breakdown and
    evaluation to the audience.
  • An expository (explanatory) paper explains
    something to the audience.
  • An argumentative paper makes a claim about a
    topic and justifies this claim with specific
    evidence. The claim could be an opinion, a policy
    proposal, an evaluation, a cause-and-effect
    statement, or an interpretation. The goal of the
    argumentative paper is to convince the audience
    that the claim is true based on the evidence
    provided.

Thesis Statement Narrative
  • If you are writing a text which does not fall
    under these three categories (ex. a narrative), a
    thesis statement somewhere in the first paragraph
    could still be helpful to your reader.
  • Your thesis statement should be specificit
    should cover only what you will discuss in your
    paper and should be supported with specific
    evidence.
  • The thesis statement usually appears at the end
    of the first paragraph of a paper.
  • Your topic may change as you write, so you may
    need to revise your thesis statement to reflect
    exactly what you have discussed in the paper.

Example of an analytical thesis statement
  • An analysis of the college admission process
    reveals one challenge facing counselors
    accepting students with high test scores or
    students with strong extracurricular
    backgrounds.
  • The paper that follows should
  • explain the analysis of the college admission
    process
  • explain the challenge facing admissions
    counselors

5
Example of an expository (explanatory) thesis
statement
  • The life of the typical college student is
    characterized by time spent studying, attending
    class, and socializing with peers.

The paper that follows should explain how
students spend their time studying, attending
class, and socializing with peers
6
Example of an argumentative thesis statement
  • High school graduates should be required to take
    a year off to pursue community service projects
    before entering college in order to increase
    their maturity and global awareness.
  • The paper that follows should
  • present an argument and give evidence to support
    the claim that students should pursue community
    projects before entering college

Hypothesis
  • Clearly stated.
  • What is being studied.
  • Research design being used.
  • Variables to be measured.
  • A hypothesis is a prediction. It is an educated
    guess as to how a scientific experiment will turn
    out. It is an educated guess because it is based
    on previous research, training, observation, and
    a review of the relevant research literature.

Variables
  • Categorical variables are groups...such as gender
    or type of degree sought.
  • QUANTITATIVE variables are ones that exist along
    a continuum that runs from low to high.
  • QUALITATIVE variables do not express differences
    in amount, only differences.

9
Variables
  • Independent (Experimental, Manipulated,
    Treatment, Grouping) Variable-That factor which
    is measured, manipulated, or selected by the
    experimenter to determine its relationship to an
    observed phenomenon.
  • Dependent (Outcome) Variable-That factor which is
    observed and measured to determine the effect of
    the independent variable, i.e., that factor that
    appears, disappears, or varies as the
    experimenter introduces, removes, or varies the
    independent variable.
  • Moderator Variable- That factor which is
    measured, manipulated, or selected by the
    experimenter to discover whether it modifies the
    relationship of the independent variable to an
    observed phenomenon. It is a special type of
    independent variable.

10
Hypothesis Samples
  • "It is predicted that the salary level of workers
    will be positively correlated with a measure of
    overall happiness in their job performance."
  • "It is hypothesized that a rating of how
    satisfied workers are with their current salary
    will be positively correlated with a measure of
    their overall happiness and job satisfaction."
  • "it is predicted scores on a scale rating the
    level of childhood trauma will be inversely
    correlated with scores on a scale of overall
    adult happiness."
