II.  Assessment (2-3 pages):   This is the core of your paper.  Make sure this section is very
well-developed, well-organized, and well-written since your grade depends
mainly on your sociological analysis of the article.   Discuss the social   movement  
in further detail     applying   four  
key concepts   learned from any of
the previous modules.  You will be graded
by how you apply the key concepts to the article you have selected.  


*Key concepts must be 
bolded  or 
underlined  in your paper, or they
will not be counted.


Discuss how the
situation is presented by your sources.


Are there any
stereotypes or biases present?

If so, what kind?

Are the authors
directly affected by the social movement?

How might this affect
their perspective(s)?


Important:  you are asked
to analyze both the content of the article of your selection as well as how it
is presented. Presentation  in
sources  usually reflects ideology and
subtl e  power relations.    


III. Conclusion (1/2 –
1 page):


Include an engaging and stimulating conclusion
paragraph that summarizes your paper. 
Demonstrate evidence that you can make connections between all of the
main ideas.




The paper should be logically organized in
well-constructed paragraphs/sentences, have relevant content, and be easily

errors in format, sentence structure, grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.  These errors should not hinder comprehension
of your writing.
