Topic Selection and Preliminary Resources
This research project will provide you with the opportunity to conduct a sociological gender
analysis on a topic of your choosing. You will write a 5-page paper- OR- design a visual
1) Paper — You will write a 5-page analysis of an issue of your choice (see suggested ideas
below). For this paper you will need to do some outside research to explore your topic and use
course concepts to analyze and organize your findings.
2) Digital Scrapbook — You will prepare a visual summary of your findings to be displayed in a
digital scrapbook. The scrapbook should contain 7-10 slides of information (if using PowerPoint)
you could also use Prezi, or create a document for us to see.
Please note: NO ARTISTIC TALENT is required for this project. You can use a computer to
write your summary, and you can use photos, advertisements or charts from journals/magazines
to illustrate your findings. For example, if you are looking at the gender composition of college
graduating classes, part of your poster might include a chart or graph depicting your findings. Or
if you are exploring the gender messages in rap music, you might include a few examples of
lyrics on your slides.
3) Presentation/discussion post– In our discussion group post, you will discuss your research
project, your major findings, and how you applied course concepts to your topic.
The fun of the project is that together we will learn about topics we typically would not have time to discuss during the relatively short schedule.
