Begin with an introductory paragraph that has a thesis statement at the end. The introduction should set up your topic, giving a preview and summary of the analysis you will present in the body of the paper. The thesis statement is the last sentence or two of the introduction and states what the main point structuring your paper will be.
Here is an Example of an Introduction.
The introduction should be one paragraph.
Explain the scope of your paper and set up the topics you will cover. Everything covered in your
paper should relate back to the introduction and thesis statement.
Draw from what you learned while identifying thesis statements in the Week Two Locating Scholarly
Resources assignment to help you craft your own thesis statement.
Review your instructor’s feedback on your thesis statement from your Week Three Summarize Your
Sources for the Final Research Paper assignment. View Accessing Feedback in the Gradebook to see
how to reviewing your instructor’s feedback.

Prompt Into a Thesis Statement and Introductions and Conclusions. Part I
Using the article by Miner (1956) and the feedback you received from your instructor on your worksheet in Week Three, describe one aspect of your own culture from an etic perspective. See the appropriate Sections in the Textbook in the List of Topics, based on your chosen topic from Week Three, for information on how to approach your paper from an anthropological perspective. You can describe American culture in general, as Miner does, or you can describe an American subculture, such as a specific geographical group (e.g., New Yorkers), a particular ethnicity (e.g., African Americans), or an age-related category of Americans (e.g., millennials).
Use reputable statistics and/or scholarly research to support any factual statements. Do not rely solely on personal experience or opinion.
Here is an Example of Part I
Helpful Tips• This section should be two- to two-and-a-half pages long.• Demonstrate a culturally relativistic perspective throughout this section. Do not use opinionated or
judgmental language.• Use the article by Miner to guide your own description. How would an anthropologist describe the topic
you have chosen?• Use reliable sources to support your analysis. Review the ANT101: Evaluating Sources tutorial from the
Ashford Library.• Review the In-Text Citation Guide. Use in-text citations every time you include information you learned
from one of your sources.

Do not rely upon personal experience or opinion.
Here is an Example of Part II.
This section should be two- to two-and-a-half pages in length.
Use what you learned in the “Locating Scholarly Sources” assignment from Week Two to find your
source in the Ashford University Library.

Here is an Example of Conclusion.
Review Introductions and Conclusions. Your conclusion should be one paragraph.

covered in the paper.
