fffThis paper should reflect graduate level effort. It should demonstrate the student's ability to gather and discriminate pertinent resources, the ability to SYNTHESIZE information from a variety of sources, the ability to apply new information to a topic, and the ability to correctly use the APA Reference Style.
Times New Roman or other typical legible 10 or 12 point font such as Arial or Tahoma (not Courier)
1” margins on all sides
The paper should have an MSRS style Standard Cover Page (see D2L course link). The body of the paper (excluding components such as the cover page, abstract, reference list, appendices, etc.) should be 5 pages in length – NO MORE THAN 5 PAGES.
The paper must include a reference list in correct APA format with 5-7 resources from reliable and scholarly sources such as peer-reviewed journal articles and government reports. Sources should be published within the past five (5) years. Because this course deals with CURRENT TRENDS, 1 – 2 substantive news magazines and other non-scholarly sources are allowed. In future courses students MUST use only scholarly sources.
Final papers are due by the dates on the chart at the end of the syllabus, and should be submitted to the dropbox in the course on D2L. Graded papers will be returned during the second weekend of classes. Grades on the paper will not be available before the second weekend of classes.
Attendance: Without exception, students MUST attend and participate in both graduate seminar weekends to receive credit for this course
