Part Three –The Scholarly COA Paper

 Please review the COA paper-marking rubric on the following pages.

The Scholarly Paper

  • This is an individual paper and should not be worked on with other team members.
  • 4 pages maximum excluding cover pages and references.
  • The paper must be submitted to Turnitin ® by the due date and time.
  • Refer to the Collaborative Handbook for policy regarding late submissions and plagiarism.
  • APA format only.
  • 3 Nursing references from Scholarly Peer-reviewed Nursing Journals-Primary resource (one reference per quality).
  • Textbooks may be used as Secondary resource only.

The Scholarly Paper has 3 sections (see marking rubric)

Section 1

  • Identify each component part of the COA design
  • Explain meaning for symbol
  • Identify each quality/symbol and discuss the rationale for choice.

Section 2

  • Select 3 of the qualities represented on the Coat of Arms
  • Analyze the 3 qualities.
  • One article per quality only.
  • Show evidence of Critical Thinking in your analysis.

Section 3

  • Discussion and analysis of how your current perspective of the nursing qualities has evolved.
  • Evidence of new insights.

Students are required to submit selected written work to Turnitin ® plagiarism detection service. Students who do not want their work submitted to this plagiarism detection service must, by the end of the second week of class in the Fall semester, consult with the professor to make alternate arrangements for validating that the written work is original. When a professor has reason to suspect that an individual piece of work has been plagiarized, the professor shall be permitted to submit that work to the plagiarism detection service.

If your professor requests both a hard copy and electronic (Turnitin) copy of your paper, both versions must be identical.  When the two versions are not identical, marks will be deducted.  It is imperative that the papers be identical.

A word about the technique of submitting your paper to Turnitin.  Students must submit their paper in a PDF/Word document.  Do not cut and paste papers into Turnitin.  Do not submit individual components of your paper separately (i.e. title page in a different document than the rest of the paper). When students do not follow these guidelines, the APA formatting of the paper will be lost. Students will not be able to resubmit their papers.  It is important that students adhere to these guidelines.

When a professor marks your paper electronically through Turnitin, it is the student’s responsibility to retrieve their mark from Turnitin on the release date.  It is also the student’s responsibility to print off a hard copy of the marked paper for their portfolios.  These papers are not kept indefinitely.  They will be removed by the Turnitin service at the end of the term

COAT OF ARMS ASSIGNMENT

Part 4- The COA presentation

The fourth part of the assignment is a 10-minute presentation, in class, of your team’s ‘Coat of Arms’, explaining the rationale behind each component part.  There will be peer feedback opportunities.  For the presentation, you will showcase your work in a format of your choice (e.g., poster; PowerPoint; skits).  It is expected that all members of your team participate during the presentation.

 

All work in class and outside will reflect the following:

    1. The equal participation and input of all members, as agreed to in the contract, except for the individual paper.
    2. A “student known” communication method set up that is accessible to all members.
    3. Application of the concepts of autonomy (the initiative and opportunity to speak up) and responsibility (encouragement and support provided by the team to facilitate other members speaking up) needed in all team interactions.
    4. Free and unhindered access to resources of support, e.g., the various assets of different team members, course professor for individual or team consultation and community.
    5. Feedback is to be provided to fellow team members on their performance as a team member
