A reference page listing the sources that you used in acquiring your research listed in
properly formatted APA (6th edition) style will be submitted to no later
than 7 AM on November 5, 2013.
You must have a minimum of SIX critical sources in addition to listing the novel, The
Poisonwood Bible
. (That’s SEVEN required sources total!)
Your sources must include at least one of each of the following: book (in addition to The
Poisonwood Bible
) (may be paper or electronic), article from an academic journal (See a
database like EBSCO)
, journalistic article from a newspaper or magazine (may be paper
or electronic).
The three remaining sources should be credible sources of any type.
This assignment will be graded as an “ASSESSMENT” and will be a second quarter
For each source also include the following information (see the attached example):
• SUMMARY: a brief summary of the source (What was it about?) • CRITICAL ANALYSIS of SOURCE’S VALIDITY: Consider these: -legitimacy of source, both the publisher, the publication, and/or the author -timeliness of the source (ex. An article on cloning written in 1985 would be out-dated today and most likely inaccurate given research development in recent years.) Address the above points as applicable. • FOCUS OF SOURCE: How does this source provide you with additional insights not available in your other sources? How does it give you new perspectives? Why was it helpful? Why did you choose to use it? Since it is a work of fiction, you do not need to provide additional information on The Poisonwood Bible. Simply cite it in proper APA format: Kingsolver, B. (1998/current copyright). The Poisonwood Bible. City: Publisher. Ethnocentrism Research Project

Ehrenreich, B. (2001). Nickel and dimed: On (not) getting by in America. New York: • Summary: In this book of nonfiction based on the journalist's experiential
research, Ehrenreich attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum-wage in America. Taking jobs as a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee, the author summarizes and reflects on her work, her relationships with fellow workers, and her financial struggles in each situation. • Analysis of Article Validity: An experienced journalist, Ehrenreich is aware of
the limitations of her experiment and the ethical implications of her experiential research tactics and reflects on these issues in the text. The author is forthcoming about her methods and supplements her experiences with scholarly research on her places of employment, the economy, and the rising cost of living in America. Ehrenreich’s project is timely, descriptive, and well-researched. • Focus of the Article: At the end of the book, the author has answered her
question, "how do these people get by on their pay?" with a resounding, "not well." And so, the main question she wants to know is why the working poor suffers its indignities, both individually and collectively. And she offers some good insight – that there are costs ("friction") to trying to find a new job or moving somewhere, that the working poor are often ill-informed, that corporate and management policies are designed with carrot-and-stick to urge and threaten the submission of its employees. And to the degree that it's universally true, it's fun to ponder. Kramer, P.D. (1993). Listening to Prozac. New York: Penguin Books USA Inc. • Summary: This book focuses on “a psychiatrist who explores antidepressant
drugs and the remaking of the self.” The author describes different people, their treatments using Prozac, the reasons they take the drug, and the effectiveness of the drug in their treatment. He also explains the side effects of Prozac. Analysis of Article Validity: This book is not as reliable as the other books I
used because it is the oldest book I found. However, it is also cited as a source in one of the other books, Prozac Backlash, so though the information is dated, it was credible at the time of publication. Kramer has been criticized for seeming to advocate Prozac over psychotherapy or as a way of achieving personality changes not directly related to the disease of depression, such as improving one's social Ethnocentrism Research Project

confidence or job performance. In fact, he makes no such recommendations; he was simply the first popular writer to suggest that these changes might occur. (He answers those critics in the afterword to this 1997 edition.) For anyone considering taking antidepressants or wanting a better understanding of the effects these drugs are having on our society, Listening to Prozac is a very important book. Focus of the Article: The book did provide me with information I used,
especially in the descriptions of how different people responded to the drug in different ways. This book addresses these questions intelligently and honestly. One of the things I admire about the book is that it doesn't pretend to have answers. It suggests possibilities, yes, and the author will frequently offer his own opinions, but he's very upfront about his own discomfort with the "Miracle Cures" that Prozac, Paxil, etc. have brought about, and the questions these cures raise for the usefulness of therapy.
