Question 1 asks you to phrase the ISSUE as a question or controversy that the chapter addresses or explores. This is not where you summarize the whole piece, but rather….
Economic growth, labour market, public policy and public finance, natural resources and the environment, energy, trade, tourism, and fisheries
You are required to write a term paper based on a topic of your choice. The topic could be around one of the following about Atlantic Canada: Economic growth, labour market, public policy and public finance, natural resources and the environment, energy, trade, tourism, and fisheries. In terms of type, the term paper should be a literature survey, which involves a discussion and synthesis of published literature. The published literature could include books, peer-reviewed journal articles, and grey literature.
The title page of the term paper should contain the following:
A. Title of the paper
B. Course number and instructor
C. Your name and student number
The paper should have an introduction, body, conclusion, and references. The introduction should state the topic’s statement, the question analyzed, and the justification—the rationale or why you think the topic is important, and a thesis statement that outlines what conclusion you will draw from your analysis and synthesis of the literature. I expect you to discuss and assess the literature based on a theme or chronology organizing principles in the paper’s body. The conclusion of your term paper should provide a summary of your findings from the literature survey. I recommend that you follow the APA format in referencing.
