NOTE: Your paper should be formatted in APA essay style exactly the way this sample is presented. DO NOT use the outline format for the entire paper.)

Topic (Include the title of your Final Project here)

Introduction/Thesis Statement: introduce your topic and tell us why you selected it. Then present us with a thesis statement for your paper. That should be a one or two sentence statement at the end of the introduction that tells us what you are going to tell us about your topic. You started developing your thesis in Week 2, when you proposed your topic. (Here is a link to additional resource for writing an effective thesis statement: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/588/01/.)

Reflects Culture

Begin your next paragraphs with an overarching statement that tells us how your chosen media channel reflects culture and society. This is your topic sentence that includes an overview of the two or three ways that culture is reflected in your media channel, and that are further examined next. Developing this well helps you outline your project and create headings for the PowerPoint slides you will be working on for the future assignment (In-text citation, 2017).

Name one way your media channel reflects culture (this will eventually become a heading for your PPT slide). Next, provide a brief statement that is supported with a paraphrased or summarized source and/or select a quote to add to your list (with context) at the end. Be sure to cite your sources using APA in-text citations, and include this source at the end in your References ((In-text citation, 2017).

Name second way your media channel reflects culture (this will eventually become a heading for your PPT slide). Next, provide a brief statement that is supported with a paraphrased or summarized source and/or select a quote to add to your list (with context) at the end. Be sure to cite your sources using APA in-text citations, and include this source at the end in your References ((In-text citation, 2017).

Name third way your media channel reflects culture (if you chose to discuss 3 reflections only. Note that at the minimum you should have 2 reflections). (this will eventually become a heading for your PPT slide) Next, provide a brief statement that is supported with a paraphrased or summarized source and/or may incorporate a quote. Be sure to cite your sources using APA in-text citations, and reference this source at the end in your References ((In-text citation, 2017).

Creates Culture

Provide an overarching statement that tells us how your media channel creates culture. This is your topic sentence that includes an overview of the two or three effects that are further examined next. Developing this will help you outline your project and create headings for the PowerPoint slides you will be working on for the future assignment (In-text citation, 2017).
