Essay Assignment


Sexuality Project Topic: HEPATITIS C

You will be assigned a topic (STI or contraceptive) to research and to present to the class.
You will present the topic in the first person; as if you were the person with the STI OR if you were the person using this contraception method with your partner. Assume the class knows absolutely nothing about your topic. Not writing in the first person will result in a ten point deduction from your paper.

Be creative and write this as if you were on the lecture circuit sharing first-hand information to a college audience.

*The title, reference page and graphics/images are not counted in this four page minimum. You will use at least six different references (not using Wikipedia, an encyclopedia nor a dictionary): one book (not your text book – find another source), three articles from the school database and two internet sources (.edu and .gov only do NOT use .com or .org). If you find a web site other than .gov or .edu that you believe is a good source you MUST get the professor’s approval to use it by the deadline.  Use APA format. You will also cite your references in the body of the paper and in a reference page at the end of your paper. Sources cannot be older than five years. This is science – current references are mandatory.

If you are not sure about correct citation for references use the following web site.

See the ‘Information Literacy’ hot link under the course content heading for help with your paper.

Note regarding quality of final product:

  • Do not cut and paste from web sites. This is plagiarism and results in failure of the course.
This is individual.
Submit your paper with a title page (four full pages .doc/.docx or .rtf attachment) in the assignment area and also in the “Sexuality” discussion board. Note: This is an assignment in which all students will be sharing information (yet still writing an original paper).
