Final Paper Proposal and Outline

To prepare for your Final Paper, review the Final Paper instructions in Week Five. The paper must be formatted according to APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, and include a title and a reference page.

There are two parts to this assignment: a proposal and an outline. See the instructions below for details on what those parts should include:

Proposal

The proposal should be on a separate page from the outline, and it should consist of one or two paragraphs that describe the society selected for your paper. This society must be a nation other than the United States that has large ethnic groups within it. In the proposal, you must explain why you believe this is an appropriate society for your Final Paper.

Outline

Using the sample below as a guide, provide an outline for your Final Paper. The outline should be in basic APA outline format.

Select a particular country and analyze the ethnic stratification within that society. For this paper, you must focus on ethnic stratification and conflict, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination. In addition to a description of the selected society and its ethnic groups, your paper should include an analysis of similarities and differences the society’s ethnic stratification system as compared to the United States.

You may select one of the countries on the CIA World Factbook website for comparison to the United States in terms of the ethnic stratification system.

The following information should be included in your outline:

•Title

•Describe the selected country’s society, focusing on ethnic groups, stratification, and conflict.

•Provide examples of the ethnic problems in that society, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination.

•Discuss what the experts say about ethnic problems (or ethnic harmony) in the selected country’s society.

#2

THIS ASSIGNMENT IS DUE FRIDAY OCTOBER 16, 2015

 

Final Paper

A sociologist must be able to analyze racial and ethnic differences in different national contexts. Race and ethnicity are constructed differently in different places and at different times. For example, in the United States, race is defined in a way such that two children with the same biological parents cannot possibly be of different races. In contrast, some countries, such as the Dominican Republic, define race in a way that would allow for siblings (born of the same parents) to be placed into different racial categories. In order to develop this skill, you will select a particular country and analyze the ethnic stratification within that society.

For this assignment, you must focus on ethnic stratification and conflict, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination. In addition to a description of the selected society and its ethnic groups, include an analysis of similarities and differences in the society’s ethnic stratification system as compared to the United States.

You may select one of the countries on the CIA World Factbook website for comparison to the United States in terms of the ethnic stratification system.

The following information should be included in your Final Paper:

•Title

•Describe the selected country’s society, focusing on ethnic groups, stratification, and conflict.

•Provide examples of the ethnic problems in that society, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination.

•Discuss what the experts say about ethnic problems (or ethnic harmony) in the selected country’s society.

•Compare the selected country’s society to society in the United States. Evaluate similarities and differences related to ethnic groups, stratification, and conflict, using specific examples gathered in your research.

•Conclude with reflections and thoughts about ethnic groups and the societies in which we live.

•References

Academic research papers must meet certain standards of quality recognized by the academic community. What constitutes quality, academic research?

•Relevant research (materials are pertinent to the area of study).

•In graduate work, the use of peer-reviewed journal articles (journal articles reviewed by recognized experts in the relevant field of study) is required.

•Educational and government websites (those ending with a web URL suffix of .edu or .gov) may be appropriate in some cases but should be evaluated carefully.
