Reading Memo (): Each student will write one memo during the course. The schedule for these memos is listed on the schedule of classes. The memo should be approximately 5 pages long, and must include a summary of the main points of the reading, your thoughts about the reading, and two discussion questions.
Please note that this assignment also requires you to lead the online discussion for the week. As the discussion leader, you should respond to questions from your group mates, add additional commentary to keep the discussion going, etc. A good discussion leader will check the discussion board at least four times during the week.
All I need is the memo and a few questions (3) they can be both simple and complex. Just good enough to get a great discussion going. Remember APA format for the memo. Below is the readings for this particular week of discussion. Please summarize these within the memo.
**Menzel – Leadership in Public Administration: Creative and/or Ethical? **Molina – Values, Context, and the Concept of Integrity
