The Essay will explore these two questions to build a critical argument: 1) For the group you have chosen, what are the cultural particularities that do or might create a conflict with the mainstream culture this group is associated with? 2) What are the tools and theories presented in this class that could serve to solve such conflicts in a peaceful and mutually acceptable manner? The Final Essay should introduce the paper by presenting the group the student is researching, describing the key conflict for the group, and arguing for a proposed solution. The body of the text will expand on the introduction by providing context and links to academic literature to make key points in the argument. The conclusion will build the final case for the solution the student is proposing. The Essay will be assessed on the displayed comprehension of theories explored in the course, the quality of analysis, the clarity of the argument; and defensibility of developed recommendations. The paper must include five academic references at a minimum. The paper will be 1200 words and is an exercise that students will complete outside of class.
