Popular Media and Domestic Violence

Applied Final Project—Popular Media and Domestic Violence

Research and develop a paper on a recent popular media report on domestic or family violence.  During the semester, you will begin to notice the frequency and explicitness with which the popular media reports on issues relating to domestic violence and family violence.  Select one case of interest and elaborate on how particular concepts, theories and/or content addressed in this course apply to this case.  In addition, evaluate how accurately and thoughtfully the article presents the subject matter. 

Applied Final Project (Parts I and II) Grading Rubric

Parts I and II of the Applied Final Project are each worth 100 points. Student submissions for Part I of the Applied Final Project will be evaluated on the degree to which:

  • Student provided a thorough and thoughtful summary of the popular media article. (25 points)
  • Student provided a thorough and thoughtful evaluation of the popular media article. (25 points)
  • Student demonstrated correct understanding of material. (10 points)
  • Student used appropriate punctuation, grammar and correct spelling. (10 points)
  • Student followed APA style. (10 points)
  • Student submission is neat and professional in appearance (consistent font size, font, margins, etc.).   (10 points)
  • Student supported assertions  correctly (with in-text citations). (10 points)

 

Part II of the Applied Final Project will be graded using the Writing Rubric that is located under Week 7 Content. 

Sample A papers for both Part I and II of the Applied Final Project are located under Course Resources.  Please note:  As the article “Army Veteran’s Violent Breakdown Bucks Demographics” is used here as an example, please do not use this article for your Final Project.  I will not grade any submission that uses this article.

 

 

Directions for Part II: Final Paper (25% of final grade)  Due week 7

 Step 1

  • Write an analysis of your chosen article in which you apply particular concepts, theories and/or content that has been addressed in this course.

Step 2

Prepare a four page (and only four pages) paper that contains the  following:

  • An introductory paragraph which explains the purpose of the paper
  • A brief summary of your chosen article (use this from Part I)
  • An analysis in which you apply particular concepts, theories and/or content addressed in this course to the case described in the article.
  • An evaluation regarding how accurately and thoughtfully the article presents the subject matter (use this from Part I)
  • A concluding paragraph

Additional information about your paper:

  • The paper requires a cover sheet (title page) and a reference page.
  • The total number of pages for this assignment is 6.
  • The paper should follow APA style.
  • The paper should be double-spaced
  • Paragraphs should be indented 5 spaces
  • The pages should be numbered.
  • Do not include an abstract.

 

  • Helpful Hints
  • Be concise! Remember that the body of your final paper should be only 4 pages long.  I will deduct 1 point for every page that exceeds the 4-page limit.
  • Part II of this assignment requires that you do more than simply summarize the media article. Failure to include concepts, theories and/or content from the course will result in lost points.  This assignment is intended to      demonstrate applied learning (i.e., how well you are able to apply concepts, theories and content from the course to “real world” examples).
  • If you quote or use any material from a media article, course materials or any other resource materials be sure to cite and reference this information following APA guidelines (a style guide is located under Course Resources).
  • The APA Style Guide located under Course Resources provides a sample of a      cover sheet (title page).
  • Remember that the introductory and concluding paragraphs need to relate to each other.
