You need to then come up with an issue or challenge within one of the broad topics above to write your paper on. We will work in tutorial together to develop this. We will be delving into the topics above throughout the readings and lectures, so you can formulate an issue to write your paper on as we move through the semester.
3. Critical Perspective: At all times, your writing should have a critical perspective. Do not simply describe an issue. You must examine reasons for the issue, try to explain how it has come to be, possible solutions or obstacles towards its resolution, other contributing factors that might have been overlooked, etc. When possible, provide contrasting viewpoints.
4. Your paper draft must include the following:
– Cover page which includes a working title, course details, due date, your information (name and student number), name of your tutorial leader, and tutorial group number. The cover page does not count in the page count for your paper draft.
– Section 1: Introduction Indicate clearly what you intend to examine in your final paper. Your introduction will contain your thesis statement or organizing argument. This can be written as a question. Be as specific as possible. For example, a strong thesis statement / question is: “How do doctor attitudes create barriers to care for people with disabilities?” A weak one for the same topic is: “What are barriers to health for people with disabilities?” (this is too broad and big for a short paper). Make sure the problem or issue you explore is one that is looking at the system and not the individual, we are looking for ways to change the system to meet the needs of people and not fit people into a system that is not working for all. Put your thesis in BOLD.
– Section 2: Background and context: The next section of your paper will contain background information for your topic and provide some context. What are some of the key historical moments or milestones for this area of concern? How did this issue develop? Etc.
– Sections 3-5: Discussion: The body of your paper draft will consist of separate sections, with subtitles, each section covering a different point that supports your thesis statement or organizing argument. Use subtitles to indicate what you are going to discuss in the next section. Within each section, use complete sentences, and draw from the academic literature to support your arguments.
– Conclusion: Draw conclusions and pull your paper’s main points together. Do not introduce new material at this point in your paper.
– Reference List: Your paper draft must use 4- 5 academic references. These include articles from peer-reviewed academic journals, books, or government documents. You may use up to two course readings. Newspaper and magazine articles may be used but do not count as academic references. The list must be done in APA style. The reference list does not count in your page count.
