What social issues and social problems have been in the news? Identify one news article that has been published during the past month that identifies a social issue or social problem in the United States. Please make sure that you do not select an article that someone has already posted in the discussion. Briefly explain the issue/problem, making sure that you use the concepts and terms that are included in the Module 1 readings and videos.
Then evaluate the source. Who is the author? What is the author’s expertise in the topic? Research the publisher. Does the publisher have a particular ideology and/or bias? Who is the targeted audience for the publisher?
Make sure that you include a link to the article at the bottom of your post and cite the article, using APA style. The Research, Write, and Cite guide has extensive information about APA citations.
Use Correct APA Format. 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. Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a 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 them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
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.
