Sources:and a minimum of 3 other sources (see note below). Topic: Scan through Chapters 8-12, focusing on a topic that has personal or professional meaning for you. Ask a question to direct your research: Is it true that undocumented workers cost our economy more than they benefit it? Are Asian students naturally better at math? Are men are less nurturing and therefore less capable of taking care of small children? Is Affirmative Action effective or ineffective? Does law enforcement racially profile? Why do boys have lower GPAs but higher standardized test scores? Does therapy to change sexual orientation work? What do members of a particular faith really believe? Would a deaf person prefer to be hearing? Are people with mental illness violent? Your paper is about asking a genuine question and using research to answer it. This should be something you truly have a question about. This is your opportunity to research this and uncover the facts, the fictions, and the attitudes that surround that question. Begin by looking through the book and thinking about the issues and ideas that really interest you. I suggest you go with your strongest interest, rather than whatever looks easiest. Please contact me if you would like help picking a topic. Narrow your topic as much as you can! Topics such as Is there sexism in public schools? are much too broad. A much more narrow question would be, Are standardized tests biased towards girls or boys? Sometimes, you cant know how you will narrow your topic until you have done some research. As long as your final paper is in the same topic area, you do not need my permission to narrow it. If you wanted to change topics completely (such as changing from racism to ableism), you must get approval. Content to cover:1.What is the question, assumption, idea that you are starting with (the more focused your topic, the better)? 2. What does the book say about the topic (or related to the issue)? 3. What does your outside research say? 4. What are your own conclusions about this issue as related to the topic of diversity? 5. How does this affect you in terms of your career? Or your family? Your neighborhood? Your community? (Dont answer all of these, just the ones relevant to your topic.)
