The final course project is to write about one of these books, demonstrating fact-checking and critical-thinking skills using a scientific & sociological database. In other words,
this is not just a “book review.”
The paper has four main sections:
1. Introduction (2-3 pages, 20%)
a. A brief summary of the book you chose to read. (1.5-2 pg)
b. Make sure to identify the thesis statement and explain whether you think the author
successfully defended this thesis with the evidence they presented in the book.
c. Reflect on what you learned from the book and how it helps you to integrate the
material from the course.
Body: Fact-checking your book (3-4 pg, 40%)
a. Choose 2 ‘fact claims’ from the book that you want to investigate further and learn
more about. Each fact claim should be from a separate chapter.
b. For each fact claim, find one “peer-reviewed” article. Use the SocIndex database from
the UT library databases. (1.5-2 pages for each fact-claim)
c. Briefly summarize the article and describe how this article supports, contradicts,
expands or complexifies your book’s claim in the chapter.
d. Briefly talk about your thoughts on the comparison between the research article and
Conclusion (1-2 pg; 10%)
a. Write a brief summary of what you learned from your reading and from this exercise.
b. Discuss differences between scientific peer-reviewed literature and other types of
writing (opinion essays, newspaper/magazine articles, etc), and what makes this
literature important for society.
a. A separate, alphabetized page of all the sources you used. Must be ASA or APA style.
ASA or APA style for references (5%)
b. Your works cited page and in-text citations MUST be in ASA or APA format, no
c. You do not need a cover page, abstract, running head or footnotes
d. If you do not include a works cited (references) list, you will lose points from
References AND Style, meaning you will automatically lose 20% of your grade,
which would drop an A paper to a BC, or a C paper to an F.
Peer-Reviewed Sources: You must use the UT library sociology database (SOCINDEX) to
find peer-reviewed sources (check the box “Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals”). You may
use other sources (magazines, newspapers, internet) as supplemental sources if you would
like to, but these do not count toward your required sources. If you only use these other types
of sources, you will receive a zero for References and ¼ credit for the Body—i.e., you will
not do well on the paper, no matter how well-written.
