Anthropology of language and communication | Anthropology | University of Maryland University College

 

For this assignment, you need to do the following:

  • Search and submit reference details for at least four scholarly resources on your language and topic
  • Your references should be in APA format
  • Design and submit a list of tentative interview questions that you would like to ask your relatives or other persons associated with your ancestral language
  • Plan ahead and submit a tentative list of family members you want to interview, as well as a tentative interview schedule
  • For additional information, review the assignment guidelines and requirements in your syllabus

Instructions: 

Use the Worksheet attached to the assignment. In Part I, create a reference list of at least four scholarly sources that you will use in your final project; references should follow APA format (7th edition). In Part II, include your tentative list of questions, relatives you would like to interview, and a tentative interview schedule.

Finding scholarly sources  

For this part of the final project, UMGC library databases, or Google Scholar to locate four scholarly or credible sources on your chosen topic.

What is a scholarly or credible source? You should rely on sources that have credibility. Appropriate sources are articles written by experts in the field, articles found in peer-reviewed journals, published documents from well-known research groups (e.g., Pew Research), and reports published by government agencies (e.g., NIH, CDC). Inappropriate sources would include popular websites (e.g., about.com, ehow.com, Wikipedia) or media outlets (e.g., Fox, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, etc.). These sources do not always accurately report their findings and are sometimes prone to bias. If a website or article fails to report the credentials of the author(s) and does not include citations for the information contained in the article, chances are it is not a scholarly source and therefore should not be used. 

Submit a summary of each article using the attached worksheet. In your own words, identify the key findings of the article. Do not simply state what the article was about (e.g., “This article talks about cyberbullying”). What specific information did you learn from your source? (e.g., “Cyberbullying has become a popular means of abuse among teenagers, affecting about half of all young people.”) The purpose of the key findings section is to demonstrate that you have read and understood each of your sources. Your key findings should be 250 words in length. Do not simply copy and paste the abstract or any other part of your source! This is plagiarism and violates university policy. 

The purpose of this assignment is to 1) ensure that you are using appropriate, scholarly sources, and 2) to make sure you are on track for your final project.
