Please read through these final tips on project requirements:
The writing style for the Midterm Project should be like an interesting article you would see in a mainstream magazine like Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair. These types of articles are organized, edited and
informational, but they are written in an enjoyable, colorful narrative style.
Your paper needs to be clearly structured around addressing the FIVE SOCIOLOGICAL GUIDING QUESTIONS. Each should be listed (in bold print) and answered with a few paragraphs of material you
have put together after analyzing and synthesizing all of the data you have gathered (through observations, interviews, background research, etc.).
Don’t forget an attention-grabbing introduction that explains to the reader what the study will be about (and why it was chosen); your paper should end with a summarizing conclusion as well (briefly recap what
At least 5 key terms from the provided list need to be logically incorporated throughout your paper and used in such a way that it is clear to the reader (me) that you understand the terms well. Terms need to
be in bold print (but only the first time they are used). Separate definitions for the terms should be provided in either a text box, footnotes, or in a list at the end of your paper. Please do not define your terms in
the body of the paper. Don’t be afraid to use more than 5 terms! 🙂 You can really impress me if you include a key thinker or two that we have covered in class as well.
Material from interviews and outside research should only be quoted briefly and should only be a fraction of your writing. I would prefer you do not provide direct quotes at all (from either research or
interviews). The best way to include research and interview data is to summarize and paraphrase findings (these still need to be cited properly in the body of your paper (in MLA format). See the handout I
provided for easy citation advice!
There isn’t really a page requirement, but if you wind up with only 2 pages upon completion then you’ve likely done too little, and if you have 22 pages you’ve gone too far. 3-4 pages single-spaced writing
(before photos) is a good average; more is better.
The illustrated “magazine article” format allows you to be more creative while writing your paper, and it makes for an interesting product or artifact for you to keep. Be sure to create a cover page, put text in
columns, add a few photos, and any other graphics you would like to do. Your main priority, of course, is the content (not the layout).
There really isn’t a required number of photos; 1 or 2 might be too little, while something like 10 or 12 is probably too much. Adding pictures is easy. All you need to do is simply copy and paste (or drag) your
pictures into your document and then right click to “format picture.” You can change the size of the images or manipulate how the text will be placed around it. After a little trial and error you’ll be an expert!
