Question description

Complete the outline after you have done library / Internet research for evidence that bears on your hypothesis.  Provide information about all of the following components of the final paper: 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. < !--[endif]-->Specific Hypothesis. 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. < !--[endif]-->Applicable Sociological Concepts.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. < !--[endif]-->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?

For example, here is a generic example of what the headings of your possible outline might look like:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->I. < !--[endif]-->Specific Hypothesis.

Part 1 Hypothesis (Made 35 of 50 points)

Homeless veterans are a serious issue that affects many U.S individuals, considering those Americans that fight for their country. Most individuals assume that the some controllable factors are major motives of homelessness like negative response or idleness to the job. Basically; there are some other key factors like distinctive military skills not demanded in the civilian culture, minimal income due to unemployment, shortage of affordable but safe housing and combat-related health issues that are creating a high risk for veterans to become homeless. These dilemmas are consequence of their arrival to civilian culture without realistic intermediary support or their military service.

Only made 35 out of 50 points due to:

Hypothesis is stated in a way that is not entirely clear.

Feedback:

You have a great topic but you do not have a hypothesis. Take what you have a put into a "if, then, because" statement.
