Students will write a 12-font size, Times New Roman font style, double-spaced analysis of semester-long research on the student’s ethnic issue of choice. Write about any topic (sports, business, politics, military, health) that has current ethnic issues; no biographies are allowed. Explain the issue and where you stand on it and why. Citations must be made, but they may be in MLA, APA, or Chicago Style. Books and/or scholarly articles must make up the majority of your sources; scholarly works have footnotes or endnotes, and many scholarly articles have titles like Journal of_____ . The cover page (if you choose to use one) does not count as the first page, and the “bibliography” or “works cited” page does not count as the tenth page.
You may use only one block-paragraph (more than four lines long) for quoting in the paper; the quote may not take up half the length of a page (ten lines of text). Examples of possible topics include the following: a specific ethnic group’s health concerns; how one particular sport accomplished desegregation (not just one person integrating one team, but all teams desegregating); the development and evolution of a specific ethnic group’s musical genre, or a specific ethnic group’s influences in a musical genre; the status of a specific ethnic group’s roles in stage plays, in television programs or in motion pictures; a specific ethnic group’s opportunities/concerns in the military; a specific ethnic group’s opportunities/concerns in politics; a specific ethnic group’s issues concerning religion; a specific ethnic group’s issues concerning public policy.
