THE PROCESS:

The sequence below is an illustrative example of how this assignment may be completed:

1) Each student should review the menu of topics and choose whichever one is most interesting.

2) Depending on the level of detail the chosen topic describes, the student should be specific enough to create a detailed written SWOT analysis that “checks off” all of the requirement boxes specific to this assignment. While the first topic presented on page one is a straightforward SWOT analysis, the second through fifth options are vague and require the author to be specific in what (s)he will review.

3) Seek out information on your chosen topic as it relates to:

a. Strengths: specific components that make it good.

b. Weaknesses: specific components that make it vulnerable.

c. Opportunities: specific areas in which it could grow, expand, and/or improve.

d. Threats: internal or external influences that interfere with its success.

4) The material you find should be put into essay format as assigned above. By the end of the term paper—summed up with the conclusion—the reader should understand the good and the bad in your chosen topic up to and including what it might look like in the future.
