GENERAL OBJECTIVES OF THE PAPER:
Your overall objective in the third paper is to demonstrate that you are working with, reading, and understanding key issues from the text Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies by Repko, et. al. You can discuss and summarize key points of chapters 9, 10, 11, 12
Think in terms of an assessment of an issue or central topic that is presented in the text—such as an examination of Critically Analyzing Disciplinary Insights, Critical Thinking About Basic Income, Integration, Researching a Basic Income, etc.
You may also want to incorporate some research and reading from other sources, including sources listed in the text, or recent books and articles. In regard to the latter, remember to check the online journals we have access to through Odum Library and the state of Georgia system, for current online journal articles—Academic Search Complete and J Store are useful in this regard. In some cases, you may want to contrast and compare instances of the issue, case study, or controversy in regard to recent events and contemporary discussions of the topic. Your paper should demonstrate your understanding of the material from the text; you should also demonstrate your skill in research on the topics.
Develop your discussion as completely as you can, and as you summarize the key points, you may also present your argument concerning the best alternative or solution—however, the ratio between the material in the text or others sources and your opinion or assessment should be approximately 90/10—90% material from text or others sources, 10% your opinion or assessment.
Examine the text in detail, comparing and contrasting the topics presented in it.
Incorporate the views examined in the text into your paper, and develop your presentation as completely as you can; in some cases, you may want to use additional sources (books, journals, etc.) to deepen your development of the topic.
You may also present your argument concerning the best alternative on the issue, but primarily your effort is to display an understanding of the text and related materials.
The ratio between the material in the text or others sources, and your opinion or assessment should be approximately 90/10—i. e., 90% material from text or others sources, 10% your opinion or assessment.
Also, remember and apply these points:
Based on the information in Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies and your research, develop your writing in a carefully organized manner, in your own words.
