Final Project—Popular Media and Domestic Violence (Part I (15%) and Part II (25%) (40 percent total)

·Project Description

Research and develop a paper on a recent popular media report on domestic or family violence. During the semester, you will begin to notice the frequency and explicitness with which the popular media reports on issues relating to domestic violence and family violence.

In addition, evaluate how accurately and thoughtfully the article presents the subject matter.

Part I: Article Summary & Evaluation (15%) Due week 5—2.16.14

Step 1

·Locate a recent popular media report on domestic or family violence that you find of interest. Recent means a media report within the last five years. Popular media reports can include an article from your local newspaper or an article from newspapers such as the New York Times, the Washington Post or USA Today (to name just a few). Examples of appropriate magazines include, but are not limited to, Cosmo, US, People, Newsweek, Time or Essence. Online articles can be used as well as paper copies. Do not use scholarly journal articles or any type of “guide” that provides information on domestic or family violence.

Step 2

·Prior to beginning your paper, review pages 1-2 of Covering Domestic Violence located in Course Content.

·Make sure that you use this guide to help you evaluate your article.

·Choose several points that have particular relevance for your article, identify these points and thoroughly describe how the article does, or does not, follow the recommended media guidelines.

·Remember, this part of the paper is not about whether you “like” or “dislike” the article. This evaluation is about how well you can argue that the article does or does not follow expert guidelines.

·Papers that do not use this media guide in the evaluation process will loose quite a few points.

Step 3

·Write a paper (no more than 2 pages in length) that includes the following:

·A brief summary of your chosen article

·An evaluation regarding how accurately and thoughtfully the article presents the subject matter.
