Class: Contemporary Immigration Global Perspective
Final Paper (groups and immigrant communities)
Topic: Italians in NYC.
Italians migration to US, specifically NYC, during the 20th century.
The paper must be focused on a more specific topic (the writer is free to choose any topic they like).
This final paper was meant to be 10 pages and 8/10 articles, as I was supposed to work on it with a partner, however I no longer have a partner. Therefore, the professor adjusted the guidelines, and now I only need to write 5-6 pages and 5 articles. I tried to adjust this in the instruction sheet.
Also, if the language could please be simple.
**Details of the research paper in attachment.
I must also submit a power point presentation based on the paper.
Let me know if you need me to order more slides or pages.
Final Paper Guidelines
2. Critical Analysis of Literature
Title first topic
Title second topic
Title third topic
1. Introduction (half a page / a page)
• In your introduction you set up your problem, research question, or puzzle. This is what you write in the first (you can use two paragraphs) paragraph of your introduction.
• Then state why addressing this problem, answering this question, or resolving this puzzle is important. Scholars often do this by telling the reader what the larger implications might be.
• Imagine your readers asking the question “So what?” at the end of your introduction and think about whether you have given them a compelling answer to keep on reading.
• In the last paragraph you explain how the argument of the paper unfolds.
• The introduction is the last part of the final paper you write. You might begin with an outline, but once you finished the paper, rewrite the introduction based on what you already know you have written in your paper.
2. Critical Analysis of Literature (3-4 pages)
• Your critical analysis of literature will consist of paraphrasing what others have written. Use quotes, but only when a part of a text succinctly and pointedly describes the idea to which you are referring.
• Write one main point in each paragraph. The first sentence of the paragraph points out the main point of the paragraph. In the rest of the paragraph, you explain it.
• Sometimes you will need more than one paragraph to explain a point. It is fine. Use transition statements to connect the paragraphs in which you are explaining the same idea.
• Divide the critical analysis of the literature by topics.
In a paper of 5-6 pages as you have to write, you need to have no more than three main topics you want to develop about your puzzle/problem/question based on the literature you read. Assign a title when you write about each topic.
• Organize the paper around each topic and use the articles appropriate for each topic. You will not use the eight/ten articles you found to explain each topic. Ideally, you will distribute evenly the literature you found to explain each topic, that is, do not use six articles for one topic, and then two articles for the other two topics you explain in the paper.
3. Conclusion (half a page/ a page)
• Restatement of puzzle and main points.
• Begin the conclusion reminding the reader your puzzle, your problem, your topic as stated in the introduction.
• Sum up the three main topics you have explained in the paper.
• State why you consider these topics are a satisfactory manner to answer the problem or question you aimed to answer in the paper.
References must be organized alphabetically.
• Paper extension and format: 5/6 pages, double space, Times New Roman 12, 1 inch each margin.
• You have to use in your paper 5 scholarly articles published in sociology journals, and/or books or edited volumes.
• The paper must reflect your original work. Remember that plagiarism is a serious academic misconduct. Academic integrity is critical in a learning community and in the scientific community. I consider any academic misconduct in this course as a serious offense.
Explain with your own words ideas you read in the articles and you want to include in the paper. Do not overuse quotations. You can include some quotations in your paper, but only if they are short and to reinforce your argument instead of using the quotations to replace your own explanation of an idea. When you explain ideas, you read in other people’ work, cite the LAST name(s) of author(s) and year of publication (Smith 2017). When you include a quote from an article, put it in quotation marks, and add appropriate pages in parentheses (Smith 2017: 88); no need to include the article titles in the text of your paper.
You cite the text when you begin to write about topics explained in this text. You do not need to do it each time. It is assumed that unless you cite someone else, or you clearly mention your own reflection, you are still citing the same text.
