Preparing the "Informal Proposal"

The Abstract and "Working bibliography


  • Your Term Class Project is (1) a Presentation and (2) a Term Paper

    • your Presentation is basicaly a preliminary report on your Term Paper, to a different audience, and with a different style

    • Do your Presentation and your Term Paper on the same topic . . . but keep in mind . . .

      • In the "real world" one often presents materials on the same topic to different audiences and for different purposes and with different styles. This set of requirements is, in addition, to having you research a topic of your interest, intended to give you some practice in presenting to different audiences, with different purposes, and (generally) with different styled. Keep that in mind when you are preparing your Presentation and your Term Paper

        • NOTE: Because of this you may not simply submit your paper as a presentation, or vice versa

      • see details with the information on the two tasks on . . .

        • AUDIENCE

        • PURPOSE

        • STYLE

  • Begin thinking about your project early in the semester

  • Talk/communicate with others about what they are doing, and share your ideas

  • Details of Presentation

  • Details of Term Paper


  • Length of Presentation
  • Audience for Your Presentation

    • Classmates (not the professor),

    • Or something like a "brown bag" luncheon presentation at your library to a mixed-group of curious individuals who normally attend more informal public lectures

    • Or students at the Student Presentations sections of the Central States Anthropological Society Annual Convention, or the annual regional convention of your major(s) [for example, Sociologists of Minnesota]

  • Purpose

    • To let your audience know what you were working on, and what you found out, and what might be interesting to look at in the future

    • To get feedback on your Presentation that might be useful in preparing your final Term Paper

    • NOTE: This is a presentation of a work in progress

  • Style
    • for the Presentation, it may be informal

    • for the Paper, formal academic


  • Audience for Your Term Paper

    • Monthly On-line newsletter of the Central States Anthropological Society, or the monthly newsletter of the professional society of your major(s) [for example, Sociologists of Minnesota]

    • Length of Term Paper

      • 10 - 12 well-written pages, including one title page and one Works Cited (or References) page

        • 10-12 pages are including one title page (see sample title page) and

        • at least one separate "Works Cited" (or "References") page

        • that leaves 08-10 pages of text (in the "Body" of your paper)

      • double-spaced

      • 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

      • Term Paper Details

    • Purpose for Your Term Paper

      • To let them know what you were working on, and what you found out, and what might be interesting to look at in the future

    • Style

      • for the Presentation, it may be informal

      • for the Paper, formal academic

    • Citation Conventions

      QUESTION: "When you put pictures in PowerPoint slides do you have cite them?"

      The basic rule is that one needs to cite everything used that is not of their own creation.  There are different ways to do that.

      For a presentation you can list the sources of the images on one or more slide (if you are using slides) at the end; that is, all of the references can be at the end; they do not necessarily have to be with each picture (that is, in a Presentation; in the Term Paper, each image must be identified, and the source given).

      If you are doing a web site, it is acceptable to link the picture to its source (which is the system I use on most of the images for the class web pages).

      • You can also add a link an image in a PowerPoint slide, but, in the end, that can be very confusing when a viewer or presenter clicks on an image accidentally and is taken away from the Presentation to the web site (or other source) of the picture.

    Have a look at the information below, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

  • images

    The use of images is one of the great strengths of using WebPages.  Images help explain your point, and they allow you to present information quickly, clearly and concisely.  And they generally make your work look more interesting.

    Identify your images with concise headings.

    When you include an image, place it as close as possible to the part of the text that it illustrates.  Place images in the most appropriate locations; do not simply add them at the beginning or the end of your paper.

    At the bottom of each image, include the source of information and any other relevant notes.  Make sure each image has an accurate title.

       
    images In your Presentation make sure each image has an accurate title.  And at the bottom of each image, include the source of information and any other relevant notes, but do that part in tiny fonts. 
       
    images

    Images help explain your point, and they allow you to present information quickly, clearly and concisely.  And they generally make your work look more interesting.  Number your images and include concise headings.  And you must have at least one reference to each illustration . . . in the text.

    When you include an image in your Term Paper, place it as close as possible to the part of the text that it illustrates.  Place images in the most appropriate locations; do not simply add them at the beginning or the end of your paper.  If your image is bigger or longer than fits on the page where it should ideally go, indicate its position with instructions set off by lines above and below and place each image on a separate page immediately following the inserted instructions as with the following example.

                                                                                           


    Insert Image 1 about here

                                                                                          

    At the bottom of each image, include the source of information and any other relevant notes.  Do not number these notes in the same series as the content notes.  Make sure each image has an accurate title.

    Number your images consecutively, in the order mentioned in the text.  Number figures, diagrams, and illustrations similarly, but separately.

    In the text, refer to images, tables, figures, illustrations ... by their number.  For example:

    "Image 1 illustrates the relationship between the femur and its attached muscles.@

    ". . . these correlations support the hypothesis (see Figure 1)."

       
    credits    Somewhere in your paper you should include an identification of and credits for your cover image.  You can do this on the “Works Cites” or “References” page.  This information is usually not included on the cover page.

    "Problem / Project Statement / Proposal"


    NOTE: Try to work an analytical section into your Presentation and Paper, and at least think about approaching your Anth of Food term Project from the traditional "four-fold" approach of American Anthropology. If the "four-fold" approach does not work as a major appoach, consider at least addressing in summary form the relationship of your chosen topic(s) to traditional American Anthropology.

    When relevant to your topic be sure to work in what is happening now; that is, where appropriate, relate it to current affairs.

    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)

    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.
