To complete this assignment, students will select a topic from the list of suggested topic options. Alternate topics may be proposed based upon the student’s interests, but such topics must be approved by the course instructor prior to the start of the project research. The paper is to be 6 to 8 pages in total length excluding the cover page and reference list. Because this assignment is intended to facilitate an unbiased and thorough assessment of the selected topic, students may use first-person narrative only in the final section of the paper reflecting the individual personal position about the topic. At minimum, the paper must address and will be evaluated for the following required elements. These elements must be noted in the narrative with proper APA section headers.
