You may submit this assignment as a video.
If you are having trouble thinking of an appropriate movie, one possibility for this assignment is the 1957 classic,
“12 Angry Men (Links to an external site.),” a courtroom drama starring Henry Fonda. Many of the most common streaming services have this film.
Compose a 10-page paper on one of the major topics covered in this course (such as self-actualization) and its implications for your personal life and professional work. The paper is to include professional references and to be written in APA style.
Choose a topic that has heart and value for you personally and also interests you intellectually. Write the paper for yourself and also for me. Don’t summarize what we have covered in class. I know that already. Focus on what you have learned about yourself and about the material.
