due by the end of Week 5, Saturday, 29 September 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. . . .

This means that you should include three or four references to materials and activities (such as interviewing someone . . .) that you think would be helpful to your in working on your project. (No, you do not have to do an interview, that's just one possibility.)

If you include a reference to a source on the web, be sure to give its full reference (not just the URL). For a web page your full reference should look something like this (include as much of this material as is available for the site[s] you are looking at):

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 Culture and Personality.
Your Project counts up to 540 points of about* 2000 points
(your Presentation = up to 100 points)
(your Term Paper = up to 400 points)
(*points will vary a little bit depending on the final number of Forum topics for the term)

NOTE: Weeks 2 and 3 there will be a "Live Chat" on Moodle 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.

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.



  2. 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.
  1. Also try getting more information from JSTORE, elelctronically stored journals, and look for other items from the UMD Library Catalogue.

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

  3. On-line Resources which might be helpful include:
    1. Infotrac®
    2. JSTOR©
    3. LEXIS-NEXIS®
    4. Soc-Anth-Hum/Cl-Cultural Studies Search Engines and Reference Works
    5. General Reference Works
    6. Books and Manuscripts On-Line
    7. UMD Library Catalogue
    8. Other Library Catalogues
    9. have a look at one or more of the daily newspapers to see what they're reporting


  4. Length: 10 - 12 well-written pages

    • including one title page (see sample title page) and
    • and at least one separate "Works Cited" (or "References") page (see sample)
    • that leaves 08-10 pages of text
    • 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

  1. Criteria for Grading College Writing

  2. Suggestion: Don't put off the Web work. The web doesn't always work when you want it to.

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

  4. Information about Handing in Your Paper

  5. Basically, it should look like the paper which follows.

Student Academic Integrity
-- UMD Office of Academic Affairs (Effective: November 22, 2011)

Use of AI-content generators for assignments in this class

When I taught Advanced Writing for the Social Sciences here at UMD, for over twenty-five years, my rule of thumb advice to students was to plan to spend 60% or more of their time and effort revising drafts (for academic type writing).

In 2001 Wikipedia appeared on the scene and very quickly became a useful tool as a starting point for many academic projects even though as an open-source resource the Wikipedia entries are not checked and verified in the same manner as other traditional reference materials.

Spelling and grammar checkers arrived on the general scene and helped with spelling and grammar checking, but, as you no doubt have discovered, they continue to require human editing.

And, of course, before that we had a selection of excellent Encyclopedia offering good starting points for many projects, the most popular being The Encyclopedia Brittanica.

And long before that there were libraries--since at least the days of Alexandria in Egypt, in the third century B.C.

The bottom line . . .

Today the evolution of research resources and aids continues with the relatively rapid appearance of ChatGPT and other automated content generators.

As many folks have already found out, they can be very useful as starting points, much like their predecessors. But, from the academic point of view, they are still only starting points.

Professors nationwide are for the most part advised, and even encouraged, to experiment with the potentials of ChatGPT and similar apps.

In this class it is fine to experiment, with the caveat that all of your written academic work demonstrates that your personal efforts—including content development and revision—reflect your personal originality, exploration, analysis, explanation, integrating and synthesizing of ideas, organizational skills, evaluation, and overall learning and critical thinking efforts.

That is to say you may experiment with the AI tool to do tasks such as e.g, brainstorming, narrowing topics, writing first drafts, editing text, and the like. AI-generated works should in no case be more than that.

In the end you need to become familiar enough with the various subjects, peoples, and places discussed in this class to research a topic and problem-solve on your own, and carry on an intelligent conversation about them in modern-day society . . . a conversation that goes byond your voicing an unsupported opinion.

Please ask questions of and offer comments to
e-mail
troufs@d.umn.edu

USEFUL LINKS FOR MORE INFORMATION:

For the record, what follows is the official UMD Academic Integrity Policy. Note that "unless otherwise noted by the faculty member" this is the default policy.

"UMD’s Academic Integrity policy covers any work done by automated content generators such as ChatGPT or other generative artificial intelligence tools unless otherwise noted by the faculty member. These tools present new challenges and opportunities."

"Within the confines of this class The use of AI-content generators is strictly prohibited for any stage of homework/assignment (e.g., draft or final product). The primary purposes of college are developing your thinking skills, being creative with ideas, and expanding your understanding on a wide variety of topics. Using these content generating AI tools thwarts the goal of homework/assignments to provide students opportunities to achieve these purposes. Please make the most of this time that you have committed to a college education and learn these skills now, so that you can employ them throughout your life." -- Jennifer Mencl, UMD Associate Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs, 10 May 2023

"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].

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.
