Content
Describe a “real life” instance of your selected social issue in a professional or a personal setting.
Discuss your perspective on your selected social issue, including the reasons for your viewpoint.
Discuss how your core values inform or influence your perspective on your selected social issue.
Demonstrate that you are really thinking about your issue—don’t settle for easy answers, don’t pretend that conflicting evidence doesn’t exist, and don’t feel that you have to take an either-or position.
Discuss the complexities of your selected social issue. For example, do not just conclude that using academic language is always good, or that government surveillance is always bad, or that wealth automatically leads to health. Think about the intricacies of these issues and how they play out in everyday life.
Organization
Include an introductory paragraph, where you clearly outline a “real-life” instance of your social issue and you give a thesis statement that indicates your perspective (see Part 2: Writing Your Introduction for an example). Underline the thesis statement.
Include 3-5 body paragraphs where you include details, examples, and quotes from at least three of the course readings and two additional readings to help you develop and support your key points (see Part 3: Writing Your Body Paragraphs for an example).
Include one body paragraph where you discuss how your core values inform or influence your perspective on your selected social issue (see Part 3: Writing Your Body Paragraphs for an example).
End your essay with a concluding paragraph where you restate your thesis, summarize your key points, and leave the reader with the “so what?” ( see Part 4: Writing Your Conclusion for an example)
Sources and Documentation
To earn the maximum possible points on this assignment, use and cite at least five sources:
Use and cite three of the assigned course readings on your selected issue (language and power; freedom and security; health and wealth). Sources from the assigned readings do not require a reference list for this assignment.
Use and cite two more sources (course readings or otherwise). Sources that are not from the assigned readings must be listed at the end of the paper on a reference page. List author, year of publication, title, and URL. Full APA format is not required for the reference page.
In-text citations for all sources should be in APA style.
These examples show options for citing a paraphrase:
This is a paraphrased sentence (Author, year).
Author (year) explains that ….
These examples show options for citing a quote:
A recent study showed that “this is the quoted passage” (Author, year, p./para. number).
Author (year) explains, “this is the quoted passage” (p./para. number).
Note that it is possible to earn a B (up to 85%) on this assignment by using only three sources from the course readings and no reference page. To earn an A (up to 100%) will require an additional two sources and reference page, if needed.

Go online and locate a news article on a current social or political situation/event. Read the article carefully. Examine the article to see how the author’s bias affects the message he/she is trying to send to you, the reader.
Then, open up a Word document, and respond to the following questions:
What kind of words has the author used? Can you pick out the tone of the article using some key words? Is the article sad, angry, peppy, happy, etc.? How do you know? Use examples to illustrate your answer.
Does the author seem to omit any details? Did you have any unanswered questions in your mind? Did any of the sentences or claims raise a red flag in your mind? If so, mention them.
Does the author mention his/her sources? Does the author seem credible? Do you believe what he/she is saying? Why or why not?
Can you figure out if the author is using limiting debate? Provide examples.
Does the story appear to be real or framed? Why or why not?
Can you tell where the author is placed geographically? Does this affect the quality of his/her writing? Illustrate your answer by providing examples.
Does the author seem to be one-sided or biased due to a particular institutional affiliation? How do you know?
Does the author seem objective and does the message in the article seem fact-based? How can you tell?
Does the medium of presentation [newspaper = print based or online] seem to affect the quality and credibility of the author? How? Illustrate your answer with examples from the article.

Using my information attached, i am to write a critical response paper that summarizes and evaluates. The first half of the paper will be a summary of the author’s argument, and the second half will be an evaluation of the content discussed in the first half. The paper should demonstrate a thorough understanding of the author’s argument and include carefully reasoned arguments in defense of my point of view. I have attached previously written Reflective Notes as a ‘jumping off’ point for this critical response. l need to respond critically (where ‘critically’ means ‘with substantive engagement’, and not necessarily ‘with disagreement’) to the reading attached. Do not do any outside research. Use only the references I have attached.
600 – 800 words
Double-spaced
12 point font
1 inch margins
No cover page
Saved as a Word .doc
Proper citations (Chicago/Turabian)
Must be uploaded through CANVAS on or before the due date.
There will be a deduction of one full letter grade (that is: 11%) for every day the assignment is late.
The paper must be argumentative within a critical response framework. Do not plagiarize or copy other sources without giving credit to the original author.

The Assignment:
In an argumentative essay of 2,000 words or more, address the following prompt. This essay should feature a well-developed thesis and appropriate evidence to support your claims. You must engage and cite at least one essays from in this class (either one I assigned, one you found for a homework assignment, or one found by one of your peers), and three outside nonfiction articles. Be sure to provide thorough analysis of all quotes and examples, and include your own argument based on your perspective on the topic.
The Prompt:
Pick an ongoing or recent social issue, political event, or newsworthy situation to focus on. Provide some context for this issue. Describe the situation, who is affected, and why it is occurring. Describe the different perspectives or stances on this topic. Why do people feel the way they do? What is your stance? Use examples from articles and your own experiences, observations, or perspective to support your claims.
The Research:
The outside sources can be any nonfiction essays of your choice. You may choose to use news articles, personal essays, research essays, academic articles from the DVC Library database, or any combination that relates to your topic. The outside essays may bring a new perspective on the topic, present a counter-argument to the assigned text(s), or provide an example that supports your claims. If you choose to cite news articles, your sources should be legitimate news outlets that adhere to journalistic standards. (Note that this does not mean that the source is unbiased; all writing has some form of bias.) I recommend news sites like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Democracy Now, NPR, BBC, The Nation, The Atlantic, The Guardian, The Economist, etc. (You are not required to use these; they are simply suggestions.) It would be most helpful if your articles are in-depth rather than a few brief paragraphs. You may also use opinion pieces but be sure to be aware of the author’s intention.
The Formatting:
This essay will be in MLA format. This means it will be typed, double-spaced, in 12-point font (I prefer Times New Roman), with page numbers and your last name on each page, and a header on the first page. Your title should be original, and you must include a Works Cited page. Be sure to include in-text citations in the body of the essay. For help with MLA formatting and citations, please see the handouts on Canvas in “Resources for Essays.”

Hello class for your Journal 11 I want you think about the stereotypes there is

Hello class for your Journal 11 I want you think about the stereotypes there is against women in the workplace. Unfortunately, society has created stereotypes against everyone. For me specifically, I must be a drug dealer or part of a gang. I want you to create a list of stereotypes against women as far as any work environment. Try to have more examples of women in policing. Then discuss how these are just stereotypes and they are completely false. Go over each example individually with a counter argument. Lastly, go over how we get pass these stereotypes and keep moving forward as a community, society and nation.
