Select a general topic that we have covered or will cover in the course (i.e., Attitudes, Stereotyping and
Prejudice, etc.) You are allowed to choose a topic that we have not yet covered so long as you read your
textbook material with enough time to write your paper. From the general topic, select a specific sub-topic that
interests you, such as attitudes toward women in the workplace, or prejudice towards white versus non-white
Once you have selected your topic, choose a journal article describing an empirical study (or studies) on your
topic. You may choose one that is cited in your textbook or may be one you find on your own.
Summarize and integrate the textbook material and the article in your own words.
Identify a social issue or current event to which you can effectively apply your topic.
