Research Paper
Length: Approximately 10 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font (2500- 3000 words, excluding title page and bibliography)

Here is the topic:
Does decentralization of power, from the federal government to the provinces, enhance the quality of Canadian democracy? Consider the assumptions underlying the confederation settlement in 1867 and the state of federalism today.

Hints:
All the essay topics are asking you to answer some questions. This means there is an expectation that you will take a stand and argue effectively your perspective. Your essay should begin with a thesis statement or paragraph that outlines what exactly you’re going to argue.

Select three or four important ideas that support your argument and then develop them in detail. Select these points carefully to ensure you’re hitting the "big ideas" of the discussion question.
Develop a coherent and concise argument using examples to support your position. You are expected to use a variety of sources including academic journals, reference books and monographs. The more research and the more diverse your sources, the more likely you are to provide a strong argument.

You will be assessed on the following criteria:
clarity of your thesis and supporting evidence
quality of argumentation and writing (i.e. grammar, spelling and paraphrasing)
strength, depth, and breadth of the evidence you assemble to defend your position
your facility with key terms, concepts and vocabulary
your ability to address opposing views
use of MLA citation rules.

Marking key (100 points) NOTE: TO BE USED AS A GUIDE ONLY

Is there a clear thesis statement and introduction that lays out the argument? /10
Strength, depth and breadth of argument (in other words, how well researched)? /30
Engaging with alternative viewpoints? /10
Using proper citation /20
Writing (grammar, spelling, clarity) /30

This is just a guide – it will help shape the grade, but if you’ve plagiarized or if I can’t understand one word of the essay because it’s horribly written or if there’s only one citation, then this will result in a failing mark. So use this as a guide only.

Scavenger Hunt Reports: As said in Chapter 1 of Knapp, Hall, and Horgan (2014), “the need to formally investigate what people do in everyday life becomes quickly apparent when you think about the specifics of nonverbal behavior

Scavenger Hunt Reports: As said in Chapter 1 of Knapp, Hall, and Horgan (2014), “the need to formally investigate what people do in everyday life becomes quickly apparent when you think about the specifics of nonverbal behavior” (p. 7). The purpose of the scavenger hunt assignment is to investigate a collection of nonverbal behaviors, responses, or observations (rather than one observation as required in the weekly essays) and report on how they support or reject a nonverbal communication proposition. By working on the Scavenger Hunt, you should become more aware of the major role nonverbal communication plays in our everyday lives. Ideas about nonverbal communication can be found everywhere, from daily experience to popular culture.

The objective of the “Hunt” is for you to collect a number of these ideas (a minimum of 3) from a variety of both primary and secondary sources (see examples below). You are to draw a proposition (claim) from the class lectures or readings from the assigned section of chapters, then find data (evidence) to support your claim. Any of the following sources of date (evidence) may be used for your paper, but please do not use any one type more than two times per paper:

  1. Account of personal experience,
    2. Description of scene from a television program or movie,
    3. Photograph,
    4. Copy of information from a relevant web site,
    5. Excerpt of a scene from a novel,
    6. Published cartoon, or
    7. Newspaper account of a true incident.

You will turn in TWO of these reports at the assigned date in the semester schedule, each report being approximately two pages long. Each report should include:
1. Your name (First and Last typed on the top of the paper).
2. Name of the assignment (typed under your name on the top of the paper).
3. The idea or proposition: Clearly state the proposition and then provide a rich explanation.
4. State the type of data you collected—you must have at least 3 pieces of data for each scavenger hunt report.
5. Provide a detailed description of each piece of data (and an image, where applicable).

  1. Describe in vivid language how each of your data points support your proposition.
  2. Describe implication for future nonverbal encounters. How do these observations impact your everyday life? Do these observations impact how you will interact, nonverbally, in the future?
    These essays must follow APA style using (i.e., Knapp, Hall, & Horgan, 2014) when citing ideas from the text. Please also include page numbers after the borrowed idea or quotation (Knapp, Hall, & Horgan, 2014, p. 234) and end the essay with a reference to the text (see syllabus on required textbook for the proper APA reference style). Additional reference guide assistance can be found using the Purdue Owl website: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
