General Instructions:
Format: Use
Times font, size 12, double spacing, one-inch margins on all sides. One
full page is 20 lines. On the top line of the first page, type your name,
Sociol 101 and Essay title. If you are
not using a paperback copy of the 13th edition that is paginated,
you must let me know which version you are using.
Then skip a line and begin. Do NOT repeat the question and instructions;
just indicate the essay by its title
Write in full sentences and
use paragraphs. No bulleting.
Use and organization of textual
requirements: The order in which the concepts and textual
requirements are listed is NOT the order in which you are to engage with the
text. They are listed arbitrarily. A big
part of this assignment is to give thought to organization of ideas – how you
develop the essay (both within paragraphs and between paragraphs). You will need to think about how you can
package together some of the different chapter section requirements and
If you are using the paperback
13th edition of our textbook whose pagination is the same as mine (you will know by the below
textual requirements and their corresponding pages), you should use a mixture
of quotations and paraphrasing and cite with page using parenthetical citation
(Newman 300). BUT, if you are using a digital version of
the 13th edition that doesn’t have page numbers or for some reason
the pages are different than the paperback 13th edition, then all of
your textual engagements must be via quotations (though you should elaborate in
your own words). You will still cite with parenthetical citation
If you
borrow specific ideas, be they paraphrased or quoted, from any YouTube videos,
articles or from my written mini-lectures, you must cite where you are
borrowing specific ideas.
Edit your
essays for spelling, grammar, sentence coherency and organization of ideas.
Length: 5- 6
pages. Depending on how concise you
write, the length will vary a bit. You are welcome to extend the length, but no
more than one page.
