Explore a national or global social issue in your area, at least one of its causes, and a potential solution. For your topic, the social issue should be a problem that can be proven to exist and has potential to be solved.
Begin by stating a thesis that defines the problem, identifies and evaluates at least one aspect of the cause, and offers one potential solution. These three points—problem, cause, and solution—will be used as level I headings for the major parts of the body content.
The paper should be 6-8 pages in length (double-spaced), plus a reference page/title page, and should use a minimum of eight credible sources. The CSU-Global Library is an excellent place to search for credible, scholarly sources.
Document and citation formatting should be in conformity with the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA. At the top of your outline, include an open-ended research question that defines the problem and asks how the problem can be solved.
Example/research question: What would it take to reduce obesity in the United States/Ohio?
The research question should be followed by a thesis, which answers the research question by stating a problem, cause, and solution. The thesis can be two sentences long if necessary.
Example/thesis: [Problem] Obesity across the United States is on the rise [Cause] partly due to the amount of trans fats contained in restaurant food. [Solution] One solution would be to regulate the amount of trans fats restaurants are permitted to include in the food they serve and to require restaurants to clearly indicate the level of trans fats contained within each menu item.
NOTE: The sample topic above cannot be used for your project. Topics that should be avoided are those currently being debated widely among media sources. Some topics to avoid include abortion, sex trafficking, gun control, and immigration.
This essay must include a minimum of five sources. Three should be peer-reviewed sources, preferably from the APUS databases. From the library welcome page, click on Advanced Search at the bottom of the page and then check the “peer reviewed” sources box filter.
The following should clarify the term “peer-reviewed”: http://youtu.be/rOCQZ7QnoN0. You may use eBooks; however, as discussed in your textbook, books generally are not as current as peer-reviewed articles. You may also use primary sources (interviews, statistics, etc); however, these primary sources should be obtained from experts within that field. If you cannot find strong sources for your chosen topic, then change your topic. If you have a question about the validity of a source, please contact a librarian: [email protected]
Make sure your essay includes the following:
I. Introduction and thesis
II. Recent historical background on the debate and the point of contention
III. Show understanding of opposition
IV. Establish common ground (typically a value like safety, freedom, patriotism, etc.)
V. Build on common ground to support your claim and also establish any other relevant support for your claim
Allow time for revisions. Read through your essay to make corrections and improvements. Make sure you haven’t left any typos or word choice errors in the final draft.
The Annotated Bibliography
As with the Toulmin essay, an annotated Bibliography (AB) is due with your Rogerian essay.
The following is a sample of an annotated bibliography entry.
Assignment Expectations: As part of your Research Project, the third assignment requirement expects students to complete a Primary Source Analysis Assignment of TWO primary sources on your chosen topic. For this assignment, you will do a search for two (2) primary sources from an appropriate database that houses primary sources related to your topic (further details below). Once students select two primary sources, they should complete the appropriate Primary Source Analysis Worksheet. Finally, after reading and analyzing these two sources, students will write a 250-word Primary Source Analysis Narrative for each primary source. Once again, for each primary source, students will submit a Primary Source Analysis Worksheet and a 250-word Primary Source Analysis Narrative. Keep reading to find out more about where to find sources for this assignment and what your analysis should include. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to your instructor.
But First, What Exactly is a Primary Source? Primary Sources are original records of the political, economic, artistic, scientific, social and intellectual thoughts and achievements of specific historical periods. They are produced by the people who participated in and witnessed the past. Primary sources offer a variety of points of view and perspectives of events, issues, people and places. These original sources were used or created by someone with firsthand experience of an event and these records can be found anywhere – i.e. at home or in government archives. Moving forward, if you still have questions about primary sources, please email me with questions. If you prefer further verification, please feel free to email me the sources that you plan to use.
National Archives: Primary Source Analysis Worksheets – The National Archives has created analysis worksheets to help you work with primary sources. Copies of these worksheets are provided as attachments in the Primary Source Analysis assignment. The worksheets consist of a combination of checklists and short-answer questions that will help you focus on the most important elements of many different types of historical documents. You will need the worksheets to complete the Primary Source Analysis assignment
Where can you find Primary Sources? Where should students look for primary sources?? Well, the UMGC LIBRARY, of course!! Why, you ask? Well, the UMGC library subscribes to many databases that contain such resources and are available to you in full-text and electronic format. Additionally, students can find sources through the Library of Congress, National Archives or University Libraries and Archives.
How can law enforcement agencies attempt to reduce complaints of excessive force and improve overall police-community relationships?

current/historical significance of the topic as it relates to criminal justice.

2. Contain 4-5 full pages of text – the reference page is a separate page and is not

paper (Textbooks are not considered academic resources for purposes of this paper).
4. The paper must contain a reference page with the proper citation for all sources
that you have utilized, cited in APA format. Students are reminded that they need to
incorporate in-text citations into the body of their writing assignment identifying the
origins of their sources as they use them.

6. No more than 3 quotes of 20 words or less each are permitted in the paper.
It is important to remember that criminal justice issues often have political, economic, organizational, and social repercussions.

this assignment adds on to my previous assignment where i had to do a article summary
In “A National Study of Sustained Use of Force Complaints In Law Enforcement Agencies,” the study highlighted how some agency and community characteristics, related to police use of force and the complaints received from these uses of force, a small research team has been focused on understanding how these factors relate to persistent complaints about police use of force. Although only 10% of complaints about the use of force were maintained, the persistent complaints against police use of force represented a theoretical and empirical different component of the relationship. Extensive research into complaints about the use of force often concludes that although complaints about the use of force are rarely maintained, differences in race, ethnicity and sex play an important role. In understanding who is sending the complaint and whether the complaints are being maintained.
