This sample is designed to test your ability to follow specific written instructions. Moreover, it is designed for you to demonstrate your ability to save your work and submit it correctly in an online class. Be sure to read the instructions entitled, “DIY: Assignment Submission” listed in the Course Information module about submitting a writing assignment.
Please write a good paragraph describing an effective manager. Maybe you have worked for someone who was great who you can describe, or someone who was so ineffective that it helped you see what a good manager should be. If your work experience is very limited, reflect on officers you worked with in clubs or nonprofit organizations, to help you compose your paragraph. Our future writing assignments will require an essay; therefore, more instructions will be available about writing essays as the Writing Assignment 1 deadline approaches.
