NOTE: Sociological writing and research require evidence, theories, and references to sociological literature and thought (sociological imagination). Sociological thought is not identical with legal, journalistic or psychological thinking. Think sociologically and demonstrate good comprehension of sociological knowledge and terminology. Also, the personal opinion does not constitute evidence or knowledge. Your opinion can be derived from the analysis and not the other way around.
Essay assignments should conform to APA format (Links to an external site.) and cite the associated reading/resource.
Use a 12-point font.
Use double spacing, so there is room for me to write comments.
Include your last name in the filename (example: Unit-1 AS1 Smith.)
It should be a Word (.doc or .docx) format file.
