Reflection essay should be 4 pages double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman with one-inch margins. 100 points can be earned for each reflection essay.
The paper assignment for this course is intended to help you improve your critical thinking skills and to help you develop deeper connections between the material we are learning and real-life experiences. In particular, you can use this short essay as an opportunity to link race and ethnic relations with real life examples. Make sure you choose a topic that interests you in order to make this assignment enjoyable.
A few miscellaneous tips:
Use topic sentences when beginning new paragraphs. The first sentence of a paragraph should convey what you intend to discuss in that paragraph.
Define terms clearly. It’s easy to vaguely reference sociological concepts in a paper, but you should define the terms you use.
Cite your sources. I do not require a specific citation style, but you should give a citation if you use quoted material and/or specific concepts.
Use a statistic or two when appropriate. Most textbooks and our lectures are full of interesting statistics, and you can also find additional statistics on from the Census Bureau website (as one example).
Edit and revise your papers and use the proper paper formatting (mentioned above).
