      • that leaves 08-10 pages of text

      • NOTE: Folks who look mostly at web sites and/or sources like Wikipedia sometimes find it difficult to write 8-10 pages of quality text. If you find that you are in that position, try researching the topic in a book focusing on your topic. Many are recommended in the class WebPages.

    • double-spaced

    • with one-inch margins all around

 Writers' Workship

The Writers' Workshop offers free one-to-one writing support to all members of UMD's campus community. Graduate student or faculty consultants will work with you on any writing project at any stage in the writing process.

For more information or to make an appointment, visit <d.umn.edu/writwork>, or stop by the Workshop's front desk in the Learning Commons on the second floor of the Kathryn A. Martin Library and visit with Jill Jenson and her staff. Walk-ins are welcome if a consultant is available.

Look for the Workshop’s trademark wall mural covered with quotations about writing. 

Students in this class have permission to see a Writers’ Workshop consultant for all take-home exams.

Doing Research and Drafting Your Paper

  1. It is fine for you to begin a project by consulting with Wikipedia (and similar on-line sources of encyclopaedic-type information) but you should be aware that the Wikipedia entries are open-source and are not checked and verified in the same manner as other reference materials.

    And sometimes the entries are confusing (have a look at "Macedonia," for example).

    And Wikipedia, should you use it, should only be a starting point.

    Wikipedia



    It is also OK to start out your research by consulting reference works such as encyclopedias, dictionaries and lexica, glosaries, other general reference works, and the like, but this stage should only be a preliminary preparation for more focused and in-depth research work.

    For a college research paper you should also have a look at other references, either traditional materials from the library, or on-line materials from sources like UMD E-Journal Locator, JSTOR, etc., or books and manuscripts On-Line. That is to say Wikipedia and the other reference-type sources listed should not be your only source of information. And you must add your own evaluations, comparisons, development, criticisms, critiques, and the like to any reference materials used. Simply cutting and pasting information from sources is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of either a required or extra-credit research paper.

    Your paper should reflect a synthesis and evaluation of materials researched.

    Selecting a Topic

    Your "Class Project" consists of a focused term paper and a presentation on what you discovered / learned while working on the paper. It is recommended that you do your term paper and your class presentation on the same subject.

    As mentioned the first week, one of the "Major Characteristics of American Anthropology" is its fourfold approach.

    For your Class Project select a topic that you are interested in and that relates to the Anthropology of Europe.

NOTE: Weeks 2 and 3 there will be a "Live Chat" to help you pick a topic for your class Project. Try to make those if you can, but if you can not, the "live Chats" are transcribed so that you can review the transcriptions after the "Live Chats" are over.

Please feel free also to stop by Cina 215 if you are in the neighborhood, or to email troufs@d.umn.edu with your questions and/or observations.

 

Try getting more information by looking at sites on the web:

Try surfing the web by searching with the search engines found by clicking on the Web "Search" button found on the upper righthand corner of the course WebPages. This will take you to the course Search Engines Page.

    Hint: When you do a search on an item that has more than one word, like "stone tools," use the "Advanced Search" option and enter the words in the "exact phrase" box -- otherwise it will search out everything with "stone" and everything with "tools," and the list of "hits" could get quite large.

Also try getting more information from JSTORE, elelctronically stored journals, and look for other items from the UMD Library Catalogue.

For your paper you should also use traditional library materials, and, where appropriate, interviews and videotapes.

On-line Resources which might be helpful include:

    European Countries and other materials indexed in the course A-Z index:



    Infotrac®

    JSTORE©

    LEXIS-NEXIS®

    Sociology-Anthropology Search Engines and Reference Works

    General Reference Works

    Books and Manuscripts On-Line

    UMD Library Catalogue

    Other Library Catalogues

    have a look at one or more of the daily newspapers to see what they're reporting


Length: 10 - 12 well-written pages

Style: For the Paper, academic

Format: Any standard format and citation convention (APA, MLA, Turabian-Chicago . . . )

    doublespaced

    with one-inch margins all around

    with body type font 11 or 12

    illustrations, tables, figures, diagrams . . . may be included, but must be properly placed and cited

Criteria for Grading College Writing

When you write anything you should consider audience, purpose, and your personal style. For your case studies, your audience should be your classmates in this class. (Do not write your college papers to the professor as audience.

Information about Handing in Your Paper to WebDrop
<https://webdrop.d.umn.edu>


Basically, your formal Proposal should look like the paper which follows.

Informal Problem Statement / Proposal

s2018 Informal Project Statement, or Project Proposal (up to 20 points)
due by the end of Week 4, Saturday, 3 February 2018

The informal statement can be very straightforward. It's a simple statement of . . .

"Here's what I'm interested in doing. . . .

Here's why I'm interested in that. . . . 

Here's what I think will be useful for that project. . . .

What do you think?"

Or, it can be something like . . .

"I'm thinking about doing a project on X or Y, but can't make up my mind.

Here's what I'm interested in, and why. . . .

Here are some things that look like they might be useful for the project. . . .

What do you think?"

A more formal statement (a "Promissory Abstract") of what you eventually decide upon isn't due for another two weeks.

    • REM: make sure your paper--whatever else it may focus on--
      relates to (and includes discussion of the relevance of the topic to)
      Peoples and Cultures of Europe

Abstract, Outline,
and List of References ("Working Bibliography")

Writing the Outline and Headings for Your Paper, "UMD Sociology-Anthropology Writing Guide"

References, "UMD Sociology-Anthropology Writing Guide"


List of References
("Working Bibliography")

The "working bibliography" for your project is a simple list of references—sources that you think will be helpful to in putting together your paper and your presentation.

And your sources may include any or all of the following kind of items . . .

  • traditional library printed materials (books, journals, magazines, government reports, microformat materials . . .)
  • library AV materials (videos, films, DVDs, audio recordings . . .)
  • library and on-online special collections (maps, images, oral history materials . . .)
  • materials from special conferences and events
  • materials from cultural myths and legends . . .
  • personal interviews (including relevant YouTube materials . . .)
  • questionnaires
  • personal journals and diaries . . .
  • personal interviews (you might even want to do something creative, like interview yourself . . .)
  • relevant WebSite materials

At the start of your project it is probably a good idea to have 6-10 sources that "look pretty good" and as if they might be useful to your project.

At the beginning, and for the list you turn in during Week 6, you do not have to do anything more than list the resources that you think will be helpful to your project and that you expect to use for your paper and/or your report.

Once you begin looking at these materials, you may want to start annotating them—that is, beginning to make notes about how they might actually be used in your paper and/or presentation.

And you might start noting additional references from your original list of items.

For details on evaluating the items on your initial "working bibliogaphy",
and on the process of annotating your working bibliography (your simple list),

University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

and the UMD Student Conduct Code
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

and the

Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

Instructor and Student Responsibilities Policy

AVISO!

A Note on Extra Credit Papers

Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

 

A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
(EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.
