Here are the guidelines:
2. The following points must be addressed:

a.    Research Question: What is the question or hypothesis that seems to guide the author’s inquiry or analysis?  Why is s/he interested in pursuing this line of inquiry?  Why do they feel that this is an important subject/problem to study?

b.    Data gathering Method:  How did they gather data? Was by survey, telephone, interviews, experiment, ethnography, participant observation, analysis of texts or visual media.

c.    Population: Who was being studied: was there a defining characteristic such as occupation, social class, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, subculture?

d.    Findings:  summarize the significant findings or conclusions reached by the author(s).

e.    Topical Concepts:  how did the article relate to one of the major concepts in the course, such as socialization, social interaction, social class, culture, institutions? For example, if your article was about gender roles, did it confirm anything you read in the chapter on gender in the textbook, or did it add to your knowledge of the subject in any significant way?

f.    Sociological imagination:  how does the article help you connect the “intimate realities of your life” with the social world?  How does it help you think about at least one of the following:
Master trends or main drifts in society
The structure of society (family, economy, education, religion, culture)
Identify what varieties of people prevail in this society at this time?
Identify other individuals in similar circumstances

3.  Organization, references, formatting: I recommend you use items a – f as an outline for your paper, place them as headings for each section.  Include a title page and work-cited page.  There will be only two bibliographic citations required, one for your textbook and the other for the article. Use the APA writing style format.
