Human Trafficking in the United States
In a 5-page paper, address the following elements:
1. Provide a description of the background on the topic of Human Trafficking in the United States and Abroad on which you would like to conduct a study (several paragraphs; include three sources and use quotes where applicable that demonstrate the problem exists),
2. Write a problem-statement in one short paragraph (based on first element),
3. Write a research question your study will answer (based on the problem-statement).
4. Describe and explain how Action Research will answer your research question.
These elements are the beginning of Chapter 1 Introduction for your thesis paper; see course for details).
Note: An element of this opening assignment is to begin a literature search. You will identify an issue or problem that requires a solution; review existing literature (professional articles, other studies, etc.) that lends evidence to there being a problem as well as suggestions for solutions. From this you will construct a research question (week 2) and design a basic study to answer these questions (weeks 3-5). Your effort here should be as complete as possible at this time as it constitutes Chapter One: Introduction of your thesis paper (the more complete this section is written now the less you will have to do in the later part of this course).
Use APA format (e.g., TR, 12 pt type). Include a reference page with a minimum of three sources for each of the two sections or a total of six references (use in-text citations pertaining to these sources).
