Writing Assignment (Part 2): Outline and Preliminary List of ReferencesDue Week 5 and worth 100 points

2. Applicable Sociological Concepts.

3. Practical Implications. Discuss the value of sociological research into your issue.  Determine whether or not there are (or would be) practical implications of sociological inquiry into this issue. 

  1. Evidence. This is the most important part of the paper. Analyze  at least two (2) lines of evidence that pertain to the hypothesis that you are evaluating.  Does the evidence support your hypothesis? For each type of evidence, consider possible biases and alternative interpretations. 
  2. Conclusions. Draw conclusions based on the evidence that you have discovered. Does the evidence confirm or refute your hypothesis? Is the evidence sufficiently convincing to draw firm conclusions about your hypothesis?

c. Concept 2
