Intergroup Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity Guidelines for Final Reflection Paper Due December 13 in both electronic and hardcopy form (25% of final grade) Objectives : The purpose of this paper is for you to reflect on your experiences in the intergroup dialogue and integrate your learning from all aspects of the course, including the assigned readings, weekly journals, class activities, Intergroup Collaboration Project (ICP), and dialogue discussions. Paper Requirements : Length : The final paper should be 10-12 pages long (double-spaced), using 12-point Times New Roman font and 1-inch margins all around. Inclusion of Readings : Please use readings to support, clarify, and contextualize your ideas. We want to see that you have not only read and understood assigned readings, but also thought about them in relation to your own experiences and learning in the intergroup dialogue. A strong paper will incorporate at least 6-8 readings of your choice from the assigned course readings. Papers that include fewer than six readings will be substantially penalized . Grading Criteria : Because students learn different things in different ways, there are no “right or wrong” answers to the guiding questions. Papers will be evaluated on content depth and quality – not on one’s opinions. A thoughtful, well-written paper (see example at the end) will include: Integrative, coherent and well-organized writing; Specific examples and detailed descriptions of learning experiences that were important for you; Reflections on your thought processes while you went through the dialogue; Analyses of your experiences and learning through the concepts of social identities, socialization, group status, personal and social change among others; Clear and precise connections between readings, concepts, and examples from dialogue. Your writing itself will be graded, along with the content of the final paper. This includes spelling, grammar, sentence structure, and format of references among others. Since this is a Sociology course, we ask that you use the American Sociology Association’s style in formatting
