Summarize Your Sources for the Final Research Paper
Please review the instructions for the Final Research Paper in Week Five before you begin working on this assignment. This assignment is designed to help you begin working on your Final Research Paper by requiring you to choose the sources you are going to use and summarize their contents. It will also give your instructor a chance to provide you with feedback on your thesis statement and your topic.
Your Final Research Paper will consist of two main parts. See the flow chart for a quick overview of the assignment.
To begin, select one aspect of your own culture from the following list. In your Final Research Paper, you will be describing this practice from an etic (or outsider’s) perspective, using the textbook and the article by Miner (1956) as a guide.

Next, identify at least one reputable scholarly source to back up your ideas. This can be a scholarly article from the Ashford University Library or a source of reliable statistics. Below are potential sources you can use to support your analysis (you can also conduct your own research to find other sources):
- United States Census Bureau (http://www.census.gov/)
- Gallup (http://www.gallup.com/home.aspx)
- Pew Research Center (http://www.pewresearch.org/)
Now, choose one of this week’s required articles to use to describe an aspect of another culture from an emic (insider’s) perspective.
Once you have identified the sources you will be using for the Part I and Part II sections of your paper, you are ready to complete the worksheet. Make sure that you cite and reference each source in APA format. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s In-Text Citation Guide and APA References List for assistance.
- For each of your chosen sources, you should provide a brief summary (one to two paragraphs) of the source. This summary will help you identify and explain the main points in the source. This will help you think about how to apply the material in these sources to the Final Research P
