Chapter 3: Defining Features of Military Family Life
Topics I choose are spousal employment and separation these are close to me because I was a military spouse and endured 4 deployments and no employment due to 3 small children.(Please use this information for the intro :))
Please write a two page essay paper focusing on a topic or topics from your readings that pertains to military families. You want to focus on the readings for that particular week. Your essay papers will be due on Fridays by midnight. Please check the tentative course schedule below for due dates. Some weeks, you will not be required to turn in an essay. This will be a great opportunity to work on your final research paper. Your papers should be no less than 500 words and in Times New Roman 12 point font. For these papers, you must also reference correctly. If you take information from a source, you must give credit to your reference. If you turn in an essay without referencing, you will earn a zero for that assignment. Please use ASA (American Sociological Association) referencing format since you will be using this style in your final paper. The ASA reference guide is listed under required texts on the first page of your syllabus. Purchasing the ASA guide will provide you with all of the ASA requirements needed to complete your work. I will be grading on your writing, correct referencing, organization (introduction, body and conclusion) and the content of your essay.
