Your final paper for Professor Fraser's class requires you to analyze a social issue and find which country, state, or organization is doing the most effective work at solving the problem. You will locate scholarly sociological academic literature as well as utilize government/organizational websites.
Professor Fraser's assignment should be structured as follows:
The topic is introduced and provides an overview of why this is an important social issue worth studying. Include some data to help highlight its relevance. Identify and introduce who/what/where is reducing or solving this issue best. Thesis statement gives clear focus of paper.
II. Literature Review
Demonstrate your ability to locate, identify, and write about scholarship related to your social issue. Scholarly sources should all be fairly recent (2010 - present).
What country/state/organization is working on solving/reducing this social issue better than anyone else that you found? Scholarly sources as well as government and organizational websites should be used to support your solution.
Make succinct and precise conclusions based on the review and solutions. Show clearly how implementing this program or policy will help reduce the social issue in the US. Tie everything together neatly by making sure insights into the problem/solutions are appropriate.
Use the American Sociological Association (ASA) or American Psychological Association citation styles (APA). Must be in correct format, both in-text and reference page. Any sources cited in-text MUST be included in reference page and any sources included in reference page MUST be cited in-text.
