The paper must be at least 1 page single-spaced (although it can be as long as you wish!).

The purpose of the myth/reality paper is to conduct some basic research and determine if common statements about society that we are exposed to are really true or are simply myths.
Â· After choosing ONE of the THREE options above, conduct some preliminary library research on the topic to determine if the statement is a myth or is actually true. If the statement is true, then please justify and/or explain why it is true. If the statement is found to be a myth, then you must also find evidence to support what the reality is!
Please note that you must quote sociological/social science-related books, peer-reviewed journals, and/or online peer-reviewed journal articlesto make your claim. If you are unsure about an article (i.e. whether it is peer-reviewed or not), then please ask before using it! Generally speaking, standard “online” articles are not peer-reviewed (unless they are found through a library website and are also printed in bound journals in the library).
Â· Note that there may be contradictory evidence available for a given topic, so as long as you support your claim with research then you will be successful (even if your response differs from another studentâ€™s response). You must cite the sources you use and you must use at least 2 distinct “peer-reviewed” sources.
Â· Please provide all of the relevant info for me to find the sources you have used. For books, this includes: author name, year published, book title, publishing co, and city/state of publication. For articles, this includes: author name, year of publication, article title, journal name, volume (and edition, if necessary), and INCLUSIVE page numbers. If any part of this information is missing, then I will NOT count the book/article as a valid source and your grade will be drastically reduced. Sources USED should be listed on a separate page/section of your paper.
Â· You must cite the sources you list in your works cited page/section in the actual TEXT of the paper. If you do not directly use a source in the paper, then it cannot be listed on your works cited page. Simply reading an article/book and “generally” using it to influence your paper is not a source that can be counted toward the 2 source minimum.
