Writing/Research Requirement: ASA format
One writing/research assignment (research paper) will be required for this course. The research paper guidelines are as follows (we will discuss this at greater length in class):
- 8-10 pages (this DOES NOT include the title page and reference pages)
- 8-10 pages MEANS full pages, in fact it is better to begin the next page with an additional line. I will not accept 9, 9 ¾ , etc.
- 10-12 peer-reviewed journal articles must be used for your research paper
- You may only use peer-reviewed journal articles as sources.
- American Sociological Association guidelines ONLY. Any paper turned in with other formatting will be subjected to a failing grade.
- Failure to turn in this writing assignment will result in an ‘F’ for this course
- Reference ASA format only
