Assignment 3 You will be graded on the quality of your answer, logical order to your answer, critical thinking, and clarity of your work. Please remember that you are being graded on how well you can apply class material (sociology class). Please keep in mind you are not defending your personal beliefs, you can only be graded on how well you understood course material. Therefore, the book must be your main reference Number and restate each question that is answered. Content is extremely important. Do not write simple sentences to meet the minimum requirement. If you want to assure that you receive a 100 on your assignments write more than the minimum requirement. Also please make sure that all your answers are numbered and that all margins are consistent. Please be mindful of your spelling and grammar (use spell check). Also, when writing your answers, please try to leave your personal biases and value judgments out. You may use examples from everyday life to support the information you provide from the textbook. Be mindful that there are various perspectives to topics covered in class. It is helpful to quote the textbook or you may provide additional information from another source in your answer. When you do you must cite your work (APA is preferred). Writing the bare minimum is never enough for full credit. I need to see that you not only read and understood the material, but also that you can use apply said information critically. On the assignments please number your answers to coincide with the questions, also, please separate the chapters. This makes it easier for me to grade. Give a lot of details and examples in your answers. One, two, or three sentence answers will not be given credit. Additionally, short answers will receive a grade that corresponds with your effort. You must write at least one paragraph per question to receive credit (Approximately 4 to 5 sentences per question). Do not provide answers in an outline format. DO NOT OUTLINE YOUR ANSWERS.
