Your first paper assignment will require you to write a three to five page response essay that summarizes and critiques the different alternatives to social research that Neuman discusses.
Please know that your response essay should be your evaluation of the alternatives to social research that are discussed within the first chapter of the Neuman book. Please do not write a book report or chapter review of the alternatives to social research that are discussed in the Neuman book. Instead, tell me your opinions and thoughts about the alternatives to social research that Neuman discusses in the first chapter. Be sure to provide clear and logical statements of whether you agree or disagree with Neuman's thoughts on the alternatives to social research. You should also make sure to identify the strengths and weaknesses in Neuman's arguments concerning the alternatives to social research. Make sure to write clearly and carefully so that your opinions are present within the paper.
