Attention  Span of Students

The term research project for this course is to be research on a particular human interaction, situation, or activity. This is where students will actually practice sociology by designing and conducting their own research on a particular facet of human society.

There are three parts to the term paper; the research proposal, a one page statement of the particular human activity or endeavor to be investigated, the theoretical position from which the investigation will be performed, the hypothesis, and the methodology; the literature review, which should be roughly 3-4 pages and incorporate initial results of a review of literature relevant to the proposed research connected to the theoretical position and research orientation, and the research proposal expanded into a research model, including the operationalization of important concepts; and the final submission which should be 7-9 pages, with an 11 or 12 point font, one inch margins, and double spaced, and incorporate results of the research and discussion of the results connected to the theoretical paradigm(s) in APA format.

Project Assignment Components

Final Submission: After conducting the literature review, it is time to gather your data using your selected research method. Once you have gathered your data, it is time to present your findings, in a formatted paper with several sections, including an introduction drawn from the research proposal, the literature review, a description of the research method, the findings of your research, a discussion of the findings, and a conclusion.

This paper should be 7-9 pages in length, and should be in the APA format. This paper should be a coherent presentation of the findings of the research of the student connected to one of the theoretical positions presented in the text with a defensible interpretation of the relevance of the findings to social science.

Some questions to consider in the discussion of your findings include; did you support or reject your hypothesis? How do your findings relate to the three theoretical paradigms; structural functionalism, conflict or symbolic interaction? Can you generalize from your findings to the larger society? How could your findings apply to social policy? Remember, be objective and allow your data to speak, even if it does not support your hypothesis.

Negative results are still good scientific results. The final submission should also include a title page, an abstract page, and a reference page with sources in APA format, all of which are to be included in the page count.

You should have at least four sources in addition to the textbook. The body of the paper should be 4-6 pages, and page numbering, a running header, and any visual representations (graphs, charts, etc.) should be included in the body of the paper.

Points will be deducted for errors in theory, method, format, grammar and punctuation in the grading process for the final submission, which is worth 100 points. Points will also be deducted for papers that do not meet the minimum length requirement.
