As Chairperson of the English Language Society, you are going to try to persuade the students to study the language by writing an article in the school newsletter. In the article you have to tell the students the importance of studying the language. Your article is given in the point form below:
You must do this analysis by answering the specific questions listed. Keep your answers as brief as possible using an "outline" style rather than an elaborate writing style whenever possible. Criteria for Article Selection The articles reviewed for this assignment must report the results of someone's research in an area of social research.
The research should have been carried out by the author s. The article must be directed at a scholarly audience.
Your review must be on an article reporting structured research, that is, one with variables, statistical analyses, relationships among variables, etc. The article may be about any social science topic you choose. Check with me if you have any doubts about your topic. Research in sociology, political science, psychology, education, or social work are fine.
But remember you need research articles; not all articles in any field are research articles. The following types of articles may NOT be used: Purely theoretical papers which discuss concepts and propositions, but report no empirical research; Statistical or methodological papers where data may be analyzed but the bulk of the work is on the refinement of some new measurement, statistical or modelling technique; Review articles, which summarize the research of many different past researchers, but report no original research by the author; Popularizations or abridged reports, commonly found in popular newsstand magazines such as Psychology Today or books of readings designed for use by undergraduates; Extremely short reports with less than four pages devoted to methods and findings.
Most research reports begin with sections on theory and reviews of others' research, so skim the whole article or read the abstract, if there is one, to determine whether the author reports actual research he or she has done. Sociology, as is true of all scientific fields, is becoming increasingly complex in its statistical analyses.
I therefore strongly suggest that you use articles no more recent than the 's. A working rule is: All articles must receive my OK.
No two students may review the same article. It is OK to use articles you have to read for another class, if they meet all of the above criteria, but you may not use the articles in Golden.
Where and How to Find an Article You must use scholarly articles for this assignment; these are found in professional journals, not general circulation magazines. The University of Wisconsin subscribes to a large number of such journals,in both physical and electronic form.
Recent issues of most of the physical journals are kept in the periodicals room of Memorial Library. Past issues are bound in hardcover by volume and kept on the first and second floors of the south stacks of Memorial Library.
Bound volumes of some journals are in the reserve room of Helen C. White library and in the Social Science Library. To find the call number of a specific journal, look up the journal's title in MADCAT, or in the list of journals in the periodicals room.
If you want to find articles about a particular topic, use the data bases available through the Library home page. Another place to get citations of articles in a topic area is in the bibliographies of other books or articles in the topic area.
If you are having trouble finding an article, go to the second floor of Memorial Library and ask a librarian for help or come see me. I suspect that most of you will go first to full text databases.
If you get an article from one of these, choose the PDF format if it is available.
You sometimes have to do this separately in non-PDF files. If your interests are wide, general, eclectic, or uncertain, you may prefer to locate a supply of journals in the stacks or the reserve room and flip through them until you spot an article that looks interesting to you.
Some other journals in sociology are:Examples of Topic Sentences and How to Write Them March 5, by April Klazema Miscommunication can be a big problem, whether you are trying to make a point in an academic paper or you are trying to send the right message in the workplace.
