First, the general rules/details:

Write a 7-10 page term paper (dont try to just stretch to 7 pages by using big margins, big fonts, big line spacing, etc.if they dont look full, they arentstick to 1 margins, no bigger than 12 point fontuse Times New Roman, double-spacing, and no extra space between sections). You can use figures, tables, charts, etc as appropriate, but dont over do it and keep the sizes of these reasonableI primarily want text discussing your issue. You need a MINIMUM of six GOOD referencesgood references can be textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, or articles from reputable newspapers (if in doubt if a source will count towards your six, you can always ask). You are encouraged to use more than six, and can use sources that would not qualify as good as long as they are in addition to the six mentioned above. Make sure you reference all material you take from the sources properly (I do not care if you use APA, AIP, or any other accepted style for your citations, but be consistent). If you are not sure of how to cite material or have any questions, ask. Please note that except for certain very powerful quotations by a famous expert, you should avoid using direct quotes and instead paraphrase the material, but realize that you still cite paraphrased material just as you would a direct quotation. Note that your citation list does not count towards the 7-10 page count.Second, what you should include:You are to do a critical analysis of the topic you presented in assignment 3 (and followed up on in assignments 4, 5, and 6). Please use my feedback from assignments 3-6 to try to improve your final term paper product. You should be addressing a topic that is in some way related to one of the sections from this course, and try to answer an open-ended question that you have posed. Your paper should include at a minimum the following sections(1) a global analysis, in which you explore details of how global issues affect your topic, how it varies between countries, cultures, etc, and how the global nature of the topic influences your analysis; this can be an expansion from your assignment 4, but should draw on more references and be more developed; (2) a quantitative analysis, in which you look at quantitative data related to your topic to try to back up your arguments; you should analyze data, charts, and tables presented in your articles, as well as give at least one chart and/or table in the paper which you create (not to be directly copied from a source); this can be an expansion from your assignment 5, but should draw on more references and be more developed; (3) a discussion of more than one possible answer to your question, in which you look at arguments for and against the point you are trying to make based on facts from your sources; this section should include elements of the discussion from the global and quantitative analyses sectionsthe paper should flow and be tied together rather than a collection of disconnected pieces; and (4) a conclusion in which you make a final argument as to why you feel your answer to the question is correct based on points youve made from your source material.Remember, this paper is to be making a persuasive argument based on factual material gained from sources. Try to make it interesting, educational, and convincing. Make the paper logical and clear. I will be grading your ability to put together a good argument (as well as including the needed elements described above), not the conclusion you draw. You may come to a completely different conclusion than I would, but if you make a sound argument, that is what is important. And again, any questions, please ask.
