(For example John Smith would send an email with the subject heading PS3 Paper Prep John Smith.) Paste your answers to the questions in the body of the email rather than attaching a file to the email. You do not have to write your term paper based on your answers to these questions. You can change topic later.

Ronald Lee, UC Berkeley, 2010 5 Your choice of topic Topic does not need to be something we cover in this class. It must have a demographic aspect, broadly speaking, but that covers a lot of ground. See syllabus! See model term papers! Thoughts about topics Focus your topic on a specific and doable question. Avoid broad and general topics. Remember this will be an analysis of primary (raw) data, not a literature review, and not based on other reports. Make your own tables and graphs. Do original work . Do not plan on taking snippets from here and there on the web. This would not be acceptable. Use whatever methods you are comfortable with.
