This project is worth 35% of your final grade. There are four parts to the project: individual Article Reading Summary (10%), Group Research Paper (15%), Group Presentation (5%); Presentation Evaluations (5%).
Each member of the group will select a scholarly journal article or book chapter of at least 15-pages (not including references) and write a summary of it. Make sure to coordinate your selections as a group, so that you can use them collectively to write a single paper, and to ensure you do not duplicate your efforts. You will share the articles and summaries with the other members of your group. You must also submit a copy of the article prior to submitting your summary.
Summary Length: 750-1,000 words
Develop a thesis, which may be supported by your individual articles. Additional research may be done however, it should not be necessary if you coordinate the selection of your articles carefully.
Format: The paper should be 1,250- to 1,750-words in length (not including citations), for a group with 5-members.
