TED Paper Details

One of the most critical skills a person needs to be successful in any field today is the ability to communicate their ideas effectively in writing. To that end, you will be required to write a short (700-1,000 words NOT including the title and references) paper on some topic related to business. This will be an original work, based on your ideas, perceptions, and goals and how they may be influenced or impacted by the source material for the paper.

There is an organization called TED that each year brings together some of the most innovative and creative people in the world. They talk about their ideas, inventions, beliefs, etc. These talks are later posted to the Internet and made available, for free, to the whole world. I have selected five of them that relate in some way to business. Your assignment is to pick one of them and write a paper about it. In the paper, you will discuss how or why the presentation relates to one of the topics covered in this course- entrepreneurship, marketing, leadership, distribution of goods and services, etc. Also discuss how you might use this idea in your own career, whether it is business or something else.

Your paper is worth a maximum of 200 points and will be graded as follows.

Format: 30 points

Spelling/grammar: 20 points

Spelling/Grammar
In the business world, in any career field really, you are frequently judged on how well you can present and explain your ideas in writing. Correct spelling and grammar are integral parts of that. Take the time to make sure your spelling and grammar are correct.

Use Spellchecker carefully. It will only tell you if a word is spelled correctly or incorrectly. It will not tell you if it is used correctly or not or if it is the wrong word. For example, it will not tell you which of these-There, Their, or They’re- is the correct word to use, only if it is spelled correctly.

Each spelling error or mistake in grammar will cause 1 point to be deducted from your score on the paper.

Content
Your paper will be scored using the rubric on the following page.
