In groups of 4-6 students, you will write a Social Problems research paper proposal, write a research paper, and present the paper to the class.
It is the stage at which you develop your thesis statement, and a framework for your paper. Your proposal should consist of a one-page description of your paper, followed by a brief summary (a few sentences) of each reference source and what it will contribute to the final paper. Furthermore, you should provide a reference list with full citations for as many scholarly reference sources as the number of members in your group. In other words, if you have 5-members in your group, you should have a minimum of 5 scholarly reference sources listed. You are welcome to include more, and also list additional non-scholarly reference sources that provide information about a specific social problem.
