Description- Complicated Topics

The final paper is a key item necessary to complete the course. It offers students to record their thoughts in writing. The goals of this effort are: first to learn and practice the conventions of academic writing, and second to explore complicated topics that extend past personal thoughts and ideas. Writing is an outlet for the inquisitive and creative nature in each of us; academic writing is a demanding process that requires commitment. Writing an argumentative research paper is to advance substantive issues and inquiry. There are a lot of ways of completing the writing, but keep in mind three key investigative conventions.


Classify the major issues of your study and provide detailed analysis of each in defense of your thesis. Evidence: Provide well-reasoned propositions and statements that are supported by facts, details, and evidence with proper documentation. Discussion: Relate the implications of your findings and the merits of the study, whether an author’s poetic techniques, a historical movement, or a social issue. The term paper should contain no less than 2,000 words, references included Students are expected to come up with a topic of their own interest. It is also encouraged to share ideas with the instructor, who may help shape ideas into an appropriate topic for the final paper.

Two general rules apply when choosing a topic: 1. Temporal Scope: 1949-present 2. Geographical Scope: Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macao, Oversea Chinese Communities In addition, avoid the following: 1. Topics which are specifically comparative in nature, since one needs to know a great deal about an apple and an orange before trying to compare apples-and-oranges. If a student does select such a topic, he or she is  to answer the question “so what?” 2. Topics which are mainly biographical in nature, as a person’s life story is difficult, if not impossible, to do well in a short paper.

In Summary

This does not mean that a student ignores the contributions and comments of individuals as he or she relates the chosen subject. Sources are either the authorities to call upon or the issues to problematize. The final paper should show evidence of the use of a variety of sources. They include, but not limited to, books, journals, magazines, various media, and online items as appropriate to the topic chosen. However, the most common sources appear in a research paper are the academic ones, namely journal articles and books. Hence the paper should use at least 5 academic sources from the following AC library databases:    AC Library:
