Current Events 1 on Chapter 2 – Drug Use as a Social Problem in Drugs, society & human behavior (Hart) Instructions from syllabus:
You are responsible for finding a news article related to the chapter we are discussing. For example, for your first CE you will find a news article related to a concept, section, paragraph, etc. in Ch2: Drug Use as a Social Problem. Please follow the format below for this assignment. Include the link to the news article.
Introduce the article: include title, author, source; what is this piece about? What is the main focus/theme?
How does the article relate to the assigned material(s)? Discuss in detail how the news article and assigned course material are related. Be as specific as possible. Quote from the textbook, explain how a specific section of the textbook relates to the news article you found.
What did you think of the article? Did you learn anything new? If so, what?
Follow APA guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
