Course Project Overview and Guidelines

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

An important part of our course is researching information on diversity and multiculturalism and
its social, cultural, and ethical impact upon individual citizens, groups of people, and society at large.
Below are four scenarios pertaining to cultural diversity. For this assignment, you will prepare a
research paper that focuses on one of these scenarios, analyzing what happened, what the
consequences either are or might be, and how the situation can be corrected and or prevented in the
future. These must be concrete suggestions that could actually be implemented rather than vague
references or opinions. While the situations have been fictionalized, there have been actual situations
that are very similar. You will submit the report in three sections throughout the course, with a due date
for each section. These due dates are posted on the Course Schedule.
The Course Project should be six to eight pages in length, with an additional Title page and
Reference page(s). The Reference page should include a minimum of four different scholarly,
academically accepted books and/or journals used. Do not use Wikipedia and similar encyclopedia
websites, such as about.com or buzzle.com. Please review the detailed instructions for each phase of
the project, which you can find in the Assignment tab for that week. Your project will be graded as
follows. Week 4: Students will submit the reference list and outline of their research paper. 75 points
Week 7: Students will submit the final version of their research paper. 150 points Scenarios
According to the U.S. Justice Department, in 2003 about 10.4% of all African American men between the ages of 25 to 29 were incarcerated, as compared to 2.4% of Hispanic men and 1.2% of
nonHispanic White men. What is going on here? Why are Black men in this age group so much more
likely to be in jail than are people of White or Latino descent? Research the incidents of criminal
prosecution, convictions, prison sentences, and time served by race and ethnicity for all three—African
American, Hispanic, and White men. What factors or variables are associated with who gets involved in
crime, why, and what happens to them in the criminal justice system? Also look into how many judges,
lawyers, and lawmakers are White compared with those who are African American. What does this tell
us about structured inequality? Grading Rubrics

The following are best practices in preparing this project. Include a Title page in APA format. For information on APA formatting, please see the
APA reference materials located in your Syllabus. Include an introductory paragraph that introduces your chosen scenario and previews the
main topics your paper will cover. Include a concluding paragraph that summarizes your main points and the benefits of
learning about the issues you’ve discussed. Use headers to organize your paper and divide into sections as appropriate.
