RESEARCH PAPER: TOPIC RATIONALE ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
The paper topic must address the historical understanding of the subject matter along with the philosophical, moral, cultural or societal elements associated with the paperâ€™s area of focus.
A course of action to defend traditional family values must be included comparing and contrasting the significant aspects contributing to the argument of the topic as well as practical applications to family, faith, and the future. Here are some points to consider for your topic development:
â€¢ What is your topic?
â€¢ What is your thesis statement?
â€¢ Have you framed a problem or simply given an editorial opinion?
â€¢ Why does this framed problem not meet the traditional values of family?
â€¢ What are the defined traditional values of family related to the problem that has been framed in your topic and thesis?
â€¢ How is the topic selected relevant to the course and its application or contraction to current family, faith, and the future?
â€¢ What data based research validates the claims you have shared?
â€¢ Be sure that you are not pulling lines of what someone else says to validate claims as someone elseâ€™s opinion is not generalizable from person to person.
â€¢ Be sure to find research that studies a number of people and the data drives a conclusion.
You will submit a concise 300-word topic presentation which considers the above points. The topic rational should have a title page and a reference page which is not included in word count. The topic rationale should include at least five (5) supporting sources which are peer reviewed journal articles from the last five years. Websites and the course textbook can be used in addition to the peer reviewed articles, but will not count as any of the peer reviewed articles expected for the paperâ€™s topic.
Remember that this is a Master’s-level class, and the work should be indicative of graduate school learning. Additionally, please consider Bloom’s Taxonomy, and academic writing when presenting works for this course.
This submission must be in current APA format with proper title page, headers, double spacing, etc. as required of any APA formatted paper.
