two papers Proposal and Project
Your course project will focus on a particular social movement that has had an impact on American society. Examples of potential topics include the Abolitionist (Anti-Slavery) Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, the Women's Rights Movement, the Environmental Movement, and the Anti-Apartheid Movement.
This week you will submit the proposal for your course project. It should include the following components:
- Description of the social movement you have chosen, why you have chosen it, what you already know about it, and what you hope to learn through your research.
- One-page, double spaced.
- Title page that includes the working title for your project.
- Reference list with at least three scholarly sources about your topic. These scholarly sources should be articles or books obtained from the Rasmussen Library databases
The final version of your course project should be submitted to the drop box below. Your final project should build from the proposal and reference list you submitted in Module 02.
Check to be sure your final submission includes the following:
- 4-5 pages of text in addition to having a title and reference page, all in correct APA format.
- A strong thesis statement supported by research from at least 5 different sources. In a research-based project like this, it is important to refer to and cite your sources throughout the paper to show where your information is coming from and to support your points.
- Incorporation of key sociological concepts while consistently demonstrating the sociological perspective. Your paper should apply one of the major sociological theories to the movement you have chosen, explaining how that theory would evaluate the development of the movement and its successes and failures.
