Project Description

6-8 pages double spaced Sociological research essay on the topic of Canadian immigration policy and Canadian nation-building.

The research paper will be evaluated on a 30-point scale based on the following criteria:

Content: (15 points) adequately addressing any social issue from a critical, analytical, sociological perspective, and critical analysis that considers the strengths and the weaknesses of the research sources in light of the paper’s main research argument. Avoid relying too heavily on summarizing and/or describing your research sources, or simply describing a problem. You must engage the sources and critically apply them to your argument (i.e., thesis). Your analysis should address how and why this social problem/issue occurs. Your paper should emphasize HOW this social phenomenon becomes normalized in our society. In other words, you need to examine the social process by which this social phenomenon occurs and is legitimated in our society as normative.

Clarity of Argument: (5 points) focus, direction and logical organization and integration of ideas in a well structured argument. Does your paper have a thesis statement? Is it a thesis?

Structure and Organization: (5 points) paper should include the following components:

Introduction: clearly stating your thesis/research argument and the specified points you will be arguing in the paper. Your thesis statement should be obvious and located in your introduction.

Body of Paper: where you develop your argument with support from your reference sources.

Conclusion: links your main ideas together.

Proper referencing style and grammar: (5 points) The paper should not have more than one, maximum two direct quotes, with social science citations throughout. It is expected that your paper will have social science citations referencing the sources used throughout each paragraph of the paper. Both direct quotes and an author’s ideas must be referenced in your paper using social science citations. Social science citations are located as the end of the direct quote or an author’s idea. Social science citations are located inside brackets and include the author’s last name, the year of the publication, and the page number. For example, (Miles, 1989). APA is the preferred referencing style. An on-line style guide of how to use APA is available at the Purdue Online Writing Lab

All referencing citations must include the author’s name and the year of the publication. Your references in your bibliography must include the author’s name, the year of the publication, the exact and complete title of the article/book, the publisher’s name, the city of publication, and (in the case of a journal article or book chapter) page [url removed, login to view] note that essays that do not include the required FIVE scholarly sources (as defined in the terms above) will automatically be given a failing grade.
