Part 4: Draft Of Research Poster

Part 4: Draft Of Research Poster

Part IV: Initial Draft of Research Poster

Due: Sunday, end of Week 6 (30 points)

Submit this assignment to two places. First, submit to the Assignments tab under “Week 6 > Week 6 Activities.” Next, submit to the Discussion Topic labelled “Week 6 > Post Your Initial Draft of Research Poster Here.”

Description: The purpose of this assignment is to have you complete a draft of your research poster.  How you organize your poster is up to you.  Remember, your poster must contain the following:

  • Introduce and identify your research question
  • Describe your population of interest
  • Look at your chosen issue from an interdisciplinary perspective by identifying at least 10 empirical, peer reviewed articles that represent at least three social science disciplines that speak to your population of choice. These articles need to: 1) Give you a pulse of the main issues facing your population and what the current state of the research is, 2) Lead you to think through potential policy implications for your group and 3) Help you examine the implications of this issue for society more broadly. You will need to compare and contrast the findings from the different disciplines. How do the findings align?  How do they contrast?  What insight does each discipline give to the specific issues of your chosen topic?
  • Identify and discuss the specific provisions within selected laws and policies (e.g. ACA, Violence Against Women Act, Social Security Act) that apply to your chosen topic.
  • Provide viable policy solutions based on your research. How could the social problem you selected be improved based on what you have learned from multiple social science disciplines?
