Using the topic, you selected during week #2 of the class, write a 7-page essay in APA that answers the following questions:

  • What the topic is about?
  • Why this topic interests you?
  • What are the major findings from the scholarly sources you found?
  • How will you apply your research to your academic or career goals?
  • A summary section that ties everything up at the end of the paper.

This paper should be written in first person and must have an abstract. It also must have seven scholarly references, at a minimum. Ideally, these seven references will be the ones you listed in your annotated bibliography.
