Louisiana State University Shreveport Karl Marx Fictional Facebook Page Project

Louisiana State University Shreveport Karl Marx Fictional Facebook Page Project

You will be selecting any social theorist from our textbook and creating a fictional Facebook page for them.

First step: Select a theorist from the index in our book.

What you need to include (specific instructions are included in the WORD document on the first page:

Name of historical figure or event at the top of the page

1) Profile Picture of your historical figure or event

Information for Person: Network/Location, Birthday/Countries, Political Affiliation/Paradigm, Religion/Leaders, Hometown/Years/where else they lived

2) The Wall

This information will be in chronological order and will include “status updates” and “wall posts” as well as replies. You must have at least 4

3) Basic Information for theorist: Sex, Relationship Status, Children, Profession, Activities/Causes, Interest, Quotes, Music, etc….

Photos & Captions: (Need at least 4)

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
