Writing Assignment (Part 2): Outline and Preliminary List of References
Due Week 5 and worth 100 points
Complete the outline after you have done library / Internet research for evidence that
bears on your hypothesis. Provide information about all of the following components of
the final paper:
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>1. <!­­[endif]­­>Specific Hypothesis.
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>2. <!­­[endif]­­>Applicable Sociological Concepts.
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>3. <!­­[endif]­­>Practical Implications. Discuss the value of
sociological research into your issue. Determine whether or not there are (or would be)
practical implications of sociological inquiry into this issue.

4.

Evidence. This is the most important part of the paper. Analyze at least two (2)
lines of evidence that pertain to the hypothesis that you are evaluating. Does the evidence support
your hypothesis? For each type of evidence, consider possible biases and alternative
interpretations.

5.

Conclusions. Draw conclusions based on the evidence that you have discovered.
Does the evidence confirm or refute your hypothesis? Is the evidence sufficiently convincing to
draw firm conclusions about your hypothesis?

For example, here is a generic example of what the headings of your possible outline
might look like:
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>I. <!­­[endif]­­>Specific Hypothesis.
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>II. <!­­[endif]­­>Applicable Sociological Concepts.
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>a. <!­­[endif]­­>Theory A
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>b. <!­­[endif]­­>Concept 1
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>c. <!­­[endif]­­>Concept 2
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>III. <!­­[endif]­­>Practical Implications.
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>a. <!­­[endif]­­>Implications for public policy
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>
i. <!­­[endif]­­>Education
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>
ii. <!­­[endif]­­>Taxes
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>b. <!­­[endif]­­>Implications for employers
<!­­[if !supportLists]­­>c. <!­­[endif]­­>Implications for spouses of workaholics
