ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Discussion: Core Assessment Sociology

ach student enrolled in SOCI 1301 will complete the State-mandated core curriculum assessment.

Provide an in-depth sociological analysis of the attached article “A Lonely Road” and “Poverty Levels in the United States, 1959-2013” graph by developing an 850-word essay that addresses each of the following items.

First, identify and explain the key questions, problems, or issues the article addresses. This introductory paragraph should tell readers what the article is about and why the subject matter is important to society.

Second, describe and evaluate the evidence provided. What information (facts, data, experiences, etc.) is the author using to support his argument? Is this credible evidence? Why or why not?

Next, using information from both the article and graph, (numerically/arithmetically) describe how the number and percentage of people in poverty has changed since 1995. How does this compare with the poverty rate for single mothers in the Deep South like Lauren Scott?

Then, apply the sociological imagination to explain how the issues identified are both private troubles (related to and impacting individuals) and public issues (What kinds of social factors and institutions contribute to the issues presented? How does this issue impact larger society?)

Finally, provide your opinion about what should be done to resolve the issues identified. In this concluding paragraph you should provide recommendations, support your opinion with evidence, and consider any challenges to implementing this solution that may exist.

Essays will be scored on the basis of: (a) adherence to standard grammar, spelling, punctuation, formatting, and attribution conventions of formal academic writing; (b) appropriate application of relevant sociological terms and concepts from course content (including textbook and supplementary materials); (c) accuracy of calculations, descriptions, and explanations; (d) use of supporting evidence.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
