Intro to Sociology, Application Paper #1: due Monday, October 27th (20 pts) Papers must be submitted both electronically on Sakai and in hardcopy by the beginning of class. *A rough draft is due in the mandatory recitation on Thursday, October 23rd. This paper gauges your ability to understand, analyze, and apply course theories, concepts, and topics; this is not an opinion paper. You must use the class notes, discussions, and readings. Additionally, you must use sociological terms and concepts accurately throughout your paper (e.g. sociological imagination, social location, institutions, functionalism, etc.). These arguments should be more sophisticated and complex than those you write in your analysis sheets. Your paper must be 5 - 6 double spaced pages (7 with the reference page) with 1 inch margins, 12 point font, and no cover page or folders. If you need assistance with writing skills, you are encouraged to refer to the “Reading and Writing Resources” folder on our Sakai site, or the Rutgers Writing Centers (http://wp.rutgers.edu/students/writing_centers_tutoring.html ). If I cannot understand your argument or analysis due to writing issues, you score will be affected. You will want to reread relevant articles before you formulate your response. Cite any quotes or concepts you use from the readings, including authors and page numbers in each citation. You do not need to cite my lecture/notes unless you use them verbatim. You may use outside sources if they are properly cited and included in the reference page. Do NOT use Wikipedia as a source. Attach a properly typed reference page to your paper (full citations are under “Resources/Reading
