Pick a social research topic that sparks your interest and is amenable to quantitative, survey-based investigation. Examples could be: experiences and perceptions of racial profiling; gender dynamics in the workplace; family history and academic achievement; and many others.
Your assignment is to collect and read five scholarly articles relating to your topic and write a 2-3-page, double-spaced paper reviewing these. Your paper should consist of the following parts: 1) an introductory paragraph where you state the general topic and reasons for your interest; 2) – 6) one-paragraph reviews of each of the five scholarly articles; 7) a concluding paragraph in which you return to your initial topic and, based on your research, frame a more specific research question or hypothesis for your own future use.
**All articles should be fully and properly cited (author, title, journal, date of publication, page numbers of journal) in a Works Cited section at the end of your paper.
