TIPS FOR GETTING STARTED:
Following these steps in order will save you time as you begin to research your essay:
- Choose one concept or idea that is addressed in one of the articles/readings featured in McIntyre’s anthology The practical skeptic: Readings in sociology.
- Then, find at least one resource from the Multimedia Library (MML) on the course site that it connects to (even in a small way).
- Then look for ways the article and the MML source relate to McIntyre’s The practical skeptic: Core concepts in sociology. This is probably when you will be able to settle on a topic.
- Finally, find one additional resource from the Multimedia Library, an article from a college database like EBSCO, or an additional article from McIntyre’s Readings anthology that relates to your topic.
Using these sources is ESSENTIAL since this exam is testing your command of the course materials.
