Prompt
Research is one of the most important skills we need to develop during our academic careers. It is not
only the bedrock of the academy but is an essential professional and life skill as well. That being said,
research papers can be challenging to write, especially if you have never written one before. With this in
mind, I have selected a topic that will be easy for you to research and designed an online module to help
you through the process. My sincere hope is that you will leave this course more confident in your ability
to do effective research.
For this paper, I want you to research political polarization in the United States. This is a much-debated
topic and you will find lots of information on it. However, before you rush to Google, it is important that
you take note of an important requirement for this paper. You will need a minimum of three scholarly
sources no older than 2005 (a scholarly source is one that has a well-developed list of references, is
published in a credible journal or by a credible publisher and has been peer-reviewed). These sources can
be found through our library’s website and I will post a video showing you exactly how to find scholarly
sources. Your paper should be based on the findings you draw from these sources!
There are a few additional things that I would like you to make sure you do for this paper. They are listed
as follows:

Make sure you have an APA cover/title page (does not count towards the page requirement!).
I want you to formulate a research question that will guide the logic of your paper.
You should also have a well-developed thesis claim.
Make sure you have good source support and evidence.
Utilize in-text citations to give credit to the scholars you are pulling from.
A bibliography/reference page properly citing all sources you have used.
