Executive Summary


Students will prepare an Executive Summary Essay on the following two questions:
1. In the locale in which you live, which ICT or Social Media Technology venue do you utilize to keep informed on government happenings?
2. Have you tried other ICT venues and if not, why?
Students will refer to the Executive Summary Guide that will provide the instructions for developing the Executive Summary Essay. The Executive Summary

shall be in an essay format with a minimum of 200 words and not to exceed 300 words. The Executive Summary shall be uploaded to the Assignment Section



Executive Summary Guide
There will be six (6) Executive Summary Essay assignments submitted
during the duration of the course. They are called summaries as they
are limited in the total number of words utilized in developing the
information for each assignment. That is, you have to choose your
words succinctly to develop your responses with supporting
information from the chapters.
Using the concepts, theories and definitions from the chapters
and the power point lectures, you are to support your
observations, analysis and recommendations within your
Executive Summary, with the following guidance given:
Please, do not write from a “first or second person” perspective. This
means do not use “I” or “we’. Use a “third” person point of view. You
do not need to footnote or other wise reference the chapters. The
focus (and space for your responses) should be directed at answering
the assignment given for each chapter.
One example of this position would be: Picture yourself in the movie
theatre and as you are watching the movie, you are describing the
various scenes to another person. In essence, you are telling a story
in your executive summary essay in providing your recommendations.
When complete, submit your Executive Summary Essay to the
Assignment Area (dropbox).
