Students should apply course material to a current social justice issue and engage in advocacy on that issue with the use of Catholic Social Teaching. The body of the paper (not including any headings) should be 850-1000 words. (This word count will be roughly 3-4 double spaced pages with 1” margins on all sides in 12pt Times New Roman font.) It is okay if your paper goes over this word count.
Citations should be parenthetical and in text. Cite any ideas that are not your own and any quotations that you pull directly from the text. Use the last name of the author and the page number followed by a period after the parentheses. For example: (Massaro, 103) or (USCCB, P86). Citations belong at the end of the sentence.
· Take a position on a current social justice issue and clearly explain what you are advocating for in order to address the injustice you identify in your paper. (Thesis)
· Draw upon
of Massaro’s themes of Catholic Social Teaching to support your argument. (Evidence)
· Use appropriate citations and include a bibliography.
Please note the following:
· You may draw on any other course texts that we have used this semester if they are helpful for your argument, including (but not limited to) the texts from Jon Sobrino, Gustavo Gutierrez, and the USCCB document, “Economic Justice for All.”
· In addition to class materials, you may use peer reviewed scholarly journals for helpful background information and statistics about your issue. You may also use the following news sources for statistics and background information: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, the BBC, NPR, The Pew Research Center, National Catholic Reporter, America Magazine, or Reuters.
The bulk of your advocacy and argument should focus on course materials. These sources are to be used for statistics and background information only.
