vehicle accidents involving operators that were impaired by alcohol

Paper details:

Final Research project: Select a location; this may be a town, village, city, county, or state in the United States. Construct a properly formatted research paper with a
minimum of four (4) full pages
Using available public data (no individual student field research is authorized), construct a research project on vehicle accidents involving operators that were impaired by alcohol. This project MUST include a Chi Square illustration table and/or a graph (of your design with color) that illustrates mode, mean, and median of your research.
This paper must have a problem statement or needs analysis statement for this inquiry.
The statement will address purpose, focus, and questions to be answered via methodology and data collection, analysis, and procedures. Additionally, this final project MUST have a scattergram graph with a regression line depicting your data.

Constitutional Amendments

Constitutional Amendments

Paper details:

Prepare a short paper for the course on the subject of the Constitutional Amendments. The paper should be between 5-8 pages, double-spaced, 12 point and in Times New Roman font. The paper is worth 50 points (10% of the grade) and will require the use of at least three (3) sources, ideally found in the on-campus Ottenheimer Library or other public or private libraries in central Arkansas. These sources should be cited using the MLA, Harvard or Chicago citation style. Other academic sources will need to be approved by the lecturer.

The goal of a research paper is to improve the student’s comprehensive knowledge of the topic, improve writing skills and practice discussing academic arguments. The paper will therefore be graded based on the proper use of citations, grammar, spelling and organization and addressing the research points described in this assignment from the academic sources

The paper should examine one of the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The student should choose one of the 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution and explain the issues surrounding its proposal and ratification. In general, the paper should explain the amendment process prescribed in the Constitution. It should describe how amendments can be proposed (both methods) and how amendments are ratified by the states (both methods). It should look at the amendments in general and historically. Also, the paper should describe the issues (pro and con) around the specific amendment chosen by the student, i.e., what were the problems causing the need for the amendment and how did the amendment seek to correct.

Annotated Bibliography
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is for students to
1) identify and learn about a subtopic in Am. Popular Culture that is of interest to them;
2) become familiar with the online library resources; and
3) to develop some information literacy skills.

Students will be developing an Annotated Bibliography Table based on a subtopic in American Popular culture that is of interest to them. A minimum of 3 peer-reviewed sources and 4 popular and/or open-web sources will need to be used in the bibliography.

The completed assignment will include:

1) Identify subtopic in American Popular Culture that you chose to investigate for this assignment. (e.g. sport and popular culture)
2) List search terms you used in your searches (i.e. sport, sociology, “popular culture”)
3) A Table with 7 annotated entries
a) Annotated entries in table for a minimum of 3 peer-reviewed articles (see below for what should be included in each entry)
b) Annotated entries in table for a minimum of 4 popular and/or open-web sources

Each source entry should be in a table format (see full guidelines under Homework Assignments folder) and include the following:

1) Title of the source
2) APA-formatted full reference for the source
3) Evaluation of where the source came from – i.e. peer-reviewed journal, blog, website, etc.
4) Brief discussion of how the source is relevant to your subtopic of interest and why you chose it.
5) Brief description of the source – research question, findings, key information, etc.
6) Evaluation of strengths of source in addressing your subtopic of interest (note: if it is not helpful at all, it is not a good source and should not be included)
7) Evaluation weaknesses regarding how helpful the source was in addressing your subtopic of interest.
8) Comparative analysis – compare/contrast how this source addresses your subtopic of interest in comparison to another source (note: no source should be used in this section more than twice)

This could be based on type of methodology used, size of sample, hypothesis, findings, how variables are measured, etc. If you analyze Source 1 in comparison to Source 2, then your Source 2 analysis should be compared to a source other than Source 1. Keep in mind all analysis should relate back to your research question.

Table Format that must be used:

Source 1 Source 2 Etc.
1) Source Title
2) APA-formatted citation for source
3) Source Evaluation
4) Relevance of source to Subtopic
5) 3-5 sentence description of source
