PART II: COURSE RESEARCH PAPER

 

 

 

Directions:This course contains a research paper.  In each module, you will work on an element of the research paper and then will submit the final research paper in Module 8.  In this module, you will find articles using LIRN to support your hypothesis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step #1: Locate two (2) articles that support your hypothesis.

 

 

 

Research Hypothesis

 

“Women are assigned lower rank roles and earn much less than men when assigned similar roles in the society regardless of ability and as a result are rank lower than men in educational, economic and professional achievement.”

 

 

 

 

 

Step #2: Summarize each article.  Your summary should consist of at least 100 words per article.  Please be sure to include the citation for each article.

 

 

 

Part III

 

This week you are asked to locate one peer-reviewed article related to any concept in sociology. The article must be peer-reviewed, based on a research study (i.e., some sort of experiment) and dated within the past five years.

 

In your main post, briefly summarize the article, its methods, and its findings. Be sure to include a complete APA-style citation for your chosen article.

 

Your main post should be scholarly in nature, at least 150 words in length.
