Teaching about racism

ResearchYou must have at least five different sources, one of which will be the weekly reading. Five different articles from the same publication does not count; there must be five different sources. The sources must also be from the last three years.Your sources must be academic journals or newspapers/mainstream publications or websites, not random google searches.I recommend using the library’s article search database. There are reference librarians on staff who can also help you.FormatYour paper must be more than 1700 words in length. This is text only, not the header or your bibliography.This is a formal paper and should be written as such. Do not use contractions (such as “can’t” or “don’t) and do not write in first person (i blah blah…)Please proofread! Have someone other than yourself read the paper. I would welcome drafts as well.Your essay must be checked for grammar and spelling, and must include proper citations, such as the page numbers. If you do not write very well, I strongly recommend you use the Stan State Student Writing Center for help with your paper.Be sure to write in your own words and do not copy. Papers with copied/plagiarized portions will not be accepted.ContentDescription/explanation/evaluation/prescriptionDescription of the current public policyExplanation of the issue and why it is relevant to our livesSummary of both sides of this issue. Evaluation of these positions.Prescription of what the government (state or federal) should be doingI am not really interested in personal opinion except perhaps at the very end of the paper (one or two paragraphs).In an “A” paper,Content is comprehensive, accurate, and persuasiveMajor points are stated clearly and are well supported.Research is adequate, timely, relevant, and addresses all of the questions stated in the assignment criteriaCiting your sourcesYou must cite your sources throughout your paper, not just at the end.You must also provide a bibliography at the end.I am not particular about the style of the citations, whether it is MLA, APA, or APSA.Do not overuse quotations! You will only be allowed two direct quotes for the entire paper. Put things in your own words and then cite your source.
