Sociology Issues Project               

Sociology Issues Assignment:

You have to pick an issue from the list below to do a short project on.  You are required to find three articles to read about you issue on the internet.  They cannot be by the same person or from the same website.  You can read more if you want.  You have to write a 500 word description of the issue and do a 10 slide Power Point on it.  The PP should have a title slide at the beginning and a bibliography slide listing the articles you used and where they are and any pictures or other info you used on the power point.  That leaves you 8 slides to fill.  I do not want the slides to be words from your report typed on screen.  I want pictures graphs and other things you can find to illustrate your issue.  Try to be analytical (tell us what the issue is and why it is a problem or issue and if there are any solutions to fixing the what’s wrong if anything is).
