Race & Ethnicity Affirmative Action Discussion & Anxiety and Depression Paper

0 comments

1. Affirmative Action Discussions 

  • Given what you learned about affirmative action in this module, what do you think about affirmative action as a policy? Would you keep the policy as is, make changes to the policy, implement it differently, or abolish it altogether? Provide a detailed and ACADEMIC rationale for your argument, NOT one based on feelings, personal ideologies, or anecdotes. You must start 1 thread and respond to 3 classmates. 
  • and 3 peer response on this discussion

2. Final Analytical Paper

  • Your final paper for the course, due during finals week, will follow the basic structure of a “What I Learned” piece in Contexts, a quarterly magazine published by the American Sociological Association (see D2L for examples). This is not a research paper. You are not expected to collect data, review literature we haven’t covered in class, or include a formal reference list. Rather, you should apply one or more of the theories or concepts we learned in the class this term to your life in a thoughtful way, discussing specific articles and authors.This means that you must cite specific course resources and articles.The paper should be written in the first person, describing some aspect of your own life experience through a sociological lens, and may be no longer than 1200 words in length. I’ll recommend the best paper in the class for publication in Contexts. Pay close attention to your word count: I will automatically deduct a letter grade if you go over the word limit. Since the word limit for this assignment is imposed by the magazine, papers longer than 1200 words will be ineligible for consideration at Contexts

Discussion Boards (5)

You will participate in 5 discussions related to course topics. A new question will be posted to the discussion board each week covering that week’s assigned readings, videos, podcasts, and topics. You will be expected to post 1 initial response to the question and comment on at least 3 other classmate’s posts. The initial response should be about 2 paragraphs. Each comment should be about 1 paragraph in length.
