For the past two weeks you have worked on your Diversity Perspectives paper (Scaffold Step #4). As noted previously this step of the research paper is much more narrowly focused than the broad overview of the Literature Review.
In this paper you have used the global issue identified in your Literature Review as the foundation and narrowed your focus to some aspect of that issue that affects vulnerable and disenfranchised groups. You have analyzed and synthesized the relevant scholarly literature and examined how these groups have historically been and currently are impacted by the policies decisions and actions of others. As part of your research you have considered various perspectives of your own cultural background and experiences as well as those of others.
Using the scholarly research related to your topic in the Diversity Perspectives paper you have examined the solutions and strategies proposed and/or implemented and you have evaluated the potential equity of such actions. You should now be ready to recommend areas for further study that might result in more equitable treatment of those vulnerable and disenfranchised groups. Your recommendation must be supported by well-reasoned evidence from scholarly research. Remember: you are not to propose solutions at this point!
Depending on the number of scholarly sources used your diversity perspectives paper should be approximately 1500-2000 words and should not exceed 2500 words. (Word counts exclude title pages headers and reference list.) Be sure you use the Diversity Perspectives Worksheet to organize your ideas. The Worksheet is in Ch. 4 of your Webtext.
Compose your work using a word processor (or other software as appropriate) and save it frequently to your computer. Do not include the actual instructions in your submission. (Including the instructions will cause inaccuracies in your Turnitin report). Create a title page for your document with your name date course information and Scaffold Step #4 clearly noted. Proofread carefully and correct any spelling or grammatical errors.
