Graded upon completion. A complete report follows the guideline below thoroughly:
A report requires you to produce a neutral depiction of a topic. It provides a complete topic description using sources to back it up. Write a report on a topic of your choosing, using a minimum required number of sources (see below). I’ve already decided the topic to be school segregation
Title: Include a title for your report.
Body: Brief introduction of the topic and its examination using the sources you have found. Remember, you need to aim for an exposition of the topic.
Conclusion: Summarize your topic without introducing new points. Summarize without guiding sentences such as “This report has informed…” or “In this report, I have illustrated…” Instead, mention the main topics and ideas you went over.
Sources required: Use and correctly cite a minimum of:
Two academic articles on the topic of your choosing
Three non-academic sources, such as reports from the Pew Research Cente (https://www.pewresearch.org/topic/other-topics/education/) the Census (https://www.census.gov/topics/education.html), other serious organizations that work on education, such as The Spencer Foundation (https://www.spencer.org/learning) and other serious think tanks, such as the Brookings Institution (https://www.brookings.edu/about-us/). (These examples do not limit you, you may use sources from other data/news producers).
Cite your sources:
Any source from an academic article to a news article must be attributed and cited using ASA(https://www.asanet.org/wp-content/uploads/savvy/documents/teaching/pdfs/Quick_Tips_for_ASA_Style.pdf), Chicago Citation Style, or equivalent (https://guides.lib.uw.edu/research/citations/citation-styles) academic citation style. Stick to one citation style of your choosing throughout your report.
At the end of the report, include a section called “References.” Under this section, you will cite all your sources following these academic rules:
References cannot be in the form of a link, such as in this example:
Wrong reference citation: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2022/per-pupil-spending.html
Right reference citation:
Jordan, Jewell (2022) “Per Pupil Spending Continues to Increase in 2020”, United States Census Bureau, May 18, 2022, https://www.census.gov/library/visualizations/2022/comm/spending-per-pupil.html
In-text citations need to be cited parenthetically. Example: “States spend more money per pupil today than in the past” (Jordan, 2022).
