For your term paper, you will research an issue about computing and society that you are initially undecided about. In your paper, you will take a position on that issue and support that position. Your paper should be approximately ten pages long.
In your proposal:
A refereed source is something that has gone through peer review--like a journal article or most conference papers. Books and jouralistic articles do not count. For each reference you provide, please provide the full, correct reference in APA format, and include the URL where it can be found, if it is available online.
We will send you comments on your proposal. In some cases, we will ask students to choose another topic and submit a new proposal. Revised proposals should be submitted as soon as possible; one week from the date we ask you to revise is the latest possible.
Either before or after these proposals are due, you may email the professor or your TA to make an appointment to discuss your topic. Or find us after class. We would love to talk with you about it!
