This is just an ABSTRACT The abstract is a brief synopsis of your final paper. In 500 words, you will give a brief synopsis of your paper and provide an overview of your topic. You will summarize the research that you have been doing and indicate what you plan to write about for your final paper. you must do research and use outside sources (mostly journal articles). As you are writing this, imagine that your audience knows nothing about the topic, so you are giving an introduction. In your final paper, you MUST use a theoretical perspective we covered in class (social construction/ ignorance etc) and apply it to a case study. You must go beyond the description and provide an ANALYSIS. Thus, I as part of your abstract, I would like to see a clear research question-- what do you want to know? What are you trying to find out?
