The documentary research project will require that you choose one of the individuals from the list of convicted criminals which I provide in class or on Canvas, and either individually or in a group of no more than three, research for the purposes of reporting the specifics concerning this individual or group in the form of a short research paper of approximately 3 pages (about 4 to 6 paragraphs).
Specific information must be provided in the course of the written essay.
APA formatting should be applied, which means that in text citation will include either the author's last name(s) and and the year the article was published or the title of the work if there is no author provided along with the year the article was published. Both the Citrus College library and my website (englit.org), as well as Purdue University's OWL website, provide formatting for both in text and reference citation formatting. All detail information, including quotes and citations, are in BODY paragraphs only, not in introduction for conclusion.
This is objective reportage, and therefore you are not allowed to editorialize (offer your own opinion) concerning the perpetrator(s), the investigation, the victims, or any other aspect. Simply report in a dry, factual manner.
