Review the Final Paper instructions in Week Five of the online course or in the “Components of Course Evaluation” section of this guide. Then, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, and review the Outline Form page. Format your outline for the Final Paper according to the Outline Form page. Be sure to look at the complete outline on page 2 and not the abbreviated outline on page 1. Include paragraphs in the “explanation” or “so what” section.

The outline must contain:

Introduction with thesis statement

At least five body paragraphs


Reference page containing at least three academic resources, two of which are found in the Ashford Online Library

This is the outline form that it is talking about… but its pretty standard so I am not sure why they mentioned it….


Making an outline for an essay can be overwhelming. You start asking yourself, “What is my essay about? How am I going to back up my claims? What if I’m still unsure about how to plan an essay? How will I keep track of it all?”

If you have a general idea of what you want to do in your essay and you know which quotations or research information that you want to use, you’re actually in a better situation than you think. You’re ready to create a rough outline! So, before you start structuring your ideas into a formal (also known as “traditional”) outline, use this worksheet to create a Preliminary Outline.

Final Paper Instructions: Letter of Advice

Imagine that a newly engaged couple hears that you are taking a course in interpersonal communication, and wants advice for their relationship. Based on what you have learned in this course, what advice would you give them regarding how to effectively use interpersonal communication in their relationship? Write your paper in the form of a letter.

Use the below list of five course learning outcomes to help guide your letter. For each of the five learning outcomes, create a separate section with a heading that reflects the learning outcome that you are using.

Identify the barriers to effective interpersonal interactions.

Describe the process by which self-concept is developed and maintained.

Define emotional intelligence and its role in effective interpersonal relationships.

Evaluate appropriate levels of self-disclosure in relationships.

Describe strategies for managing interpersonal conflicts.

Write an eight to ten page paper (excluding title and reference pages) in the form of a letter. In this paper, address the five concepts above. Your advice cannot be based on your own opinions; you must back up your advice with research, which may include readings from this course or from outside sources. In total, your paper must include at least five sources, including at least two from the Ashford University Library. This is a formal paper and should utilize proper grammar, complete sentences, appropriate paragraphs, and correct citations/references in proper APA (6th edition) style. However, you will write this paper in the format of a letter to the newly-engaged couple, and may address the couple throughout the paper. For example: “Dear Sara and Tim, my advice to you for a successful relationship is…” Along with explaining concepts and including research, you may also use your personal experiences as examples of the research and advice that you are offering.

The paper must be formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
