Sociology 1101-Article Analyses
·       
This is the first stage of the article analysis project. Here, you
submit one complete paragraph naming the specific topic you plan to find write your article analysis on, and
the major social theory (functional theory, conflict theory, or
symbolic interaction theory) that you plan to apply to it in your article
analysis apply a social theory to your article as this project moves forward.
Please follow the instructions, example formatting, and
demonstrate knowledge of theory by fully and appropriately applying them to
your articles. When I grade your analyses, if I see one or more of the problems
below, I will deduct points.
·        
Cite article or
mentioned-
·        
If you do not discuss
an article, you have submitted an opinion paper, not an article analysis it
will be wrong.
·        
no theory/wrong theory
mentioned-If no theory is stated, you have turned in an article summary, not
an article analysis. If you use a theory other than one of the three major
theories, you have not followed the directions for the assignment.
·        
unacceptable
article-If you use an article about theory (scholarly or non-scholarly), you
have submitted an article summary, not an article analysis, and have not
followed the assignment directions.
·        
stating a theory with
no connection to the article-I have to see that you know how to connect theory
with your article.
·        
stating a theory
without providing any explanation of the theory-I have to see that you know
what the theory is all about.
·        
incomplete summary of
the article-If there is not enough information presented about the article, I
cannot tell whether you made the correct connections to theory.
·        
incorrect/incomplete
explanation of/connection to theory-If your given connection between the theory
and the article is incorrect and/or incomplete, I will deduct 10 points. If
your given explanation of theory is incorrect and/or incomplete, I will deduct
10 points. If the connection and explanation are both incorrect and/or
incomplete, I will deduct 20 points.
·        
does not meet page
requirement-If the analysis is ½ page long or less or if it is 1 ½ pages long
or more, I will deduct 10 points. Learn to be precise and concise in your
writing.
·        
incomplete reference;
no reference-You must include the name of article, the name of publication
(website, newspaper, etc.) and the date of publication in your reference. If
your source does not provide all three of the components, you need to look for
another source.
·        
grammatical/writing
errors – I must be able to understand your sentences. Do not use contractions
(won’t, can’t, isn’t, etc.), first person (I, me, we, etc.), or ask questions.
·        
incorrect formatting
-Your analysis should be written using double spacing, as well as the use of
complete sentences and paragraphs. Your analysis should not have a large
heading. Only your name and the article citation are needed for the heading.
Use 1” margins on all sides and 12-point font size with a font similar to Times
New Roman. You should also use standard letter spacing.
