We begin our final research project, which combines threads of all the subjects we’ve covered this semester. You will design a small country that fosters the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people.

  • The correct approach or mode is expository, though you will use argumentation to present your evidence.
  • It is due at the end of Week 8. No late work is accepted. Upload it through Canvas to Turnitin by 11:59 pm of the last Sunday of class.
  • Your APA-style research essay will begin with a Title Page and end with References.
  • I provide a sample of APA formatting. Download and use it. It is the example against which your paper will be graded. You may use it as a template. Note that it includes additional info that your final papers will need, such as an abstract.
  • As usual for APA essays in our class, use Times New Roman font, size 12. Standard 1″ margins. Double-spaced. Page numbers inserted in upper right hand corner. Running head capitalized in upper left hand corner; the running head is an abbreviated version of your title.
  • You must also create (not copy/paste) an original graph as a visual aid in your essay. In Word: Insert > Chart.
  • Use at least five sources; three should come from Coastline’s Online Library. See below for a reminder about how to use this.
  • You may use and quote the articles linked in this week’s Modules.

ESSAY TOPIC: Design a small country that fosters the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people.

  • To do so, you’ll create policies and rationalize them using evidence from your research.
  • You’ll need to define clearly your terms (happiness, greatest number, etc.).
  • Organization: Your essay will have an introduction paragraph, several body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph–a beginning, middle, and end.
  • Total length (including title page, abstract, your content, and the References page) = 10 pages.
  • Each body paragraph must include at least one source from research.
  • Your body paragraphs will zoom in on five or more national interests. Examples include: class, race, ideologies (belief systems, religions, and so on), urban design, architecture, transportation, renewable resources, leadership / system of government, arts (painting, literature, music, film), military, cuisine, physical / mental health of citizens, entertainment, invented history, scientific innovation / research, technology, health care, family structure, economic policies, business practices, imports / exports, geographic location, topography, natural habitat…. and any others you can think of.
  • To reiterate: You are creating a country. Although a research paper, this is also a form of creative writing. Pick five or more national interests on which to focus. Support your proposed policies with concrete evidence from EBSCO articles and other online research.
  • For inspiration refer to the linked essays on happiness and society.
  • Be sure to create an outline, organize your ideas into sections, and use transitions to signal shifts from section to section.
  • Have fun! Strut your stuff. You’re strong, capable writers by now.
