The purpose of this assignment is to introduce students to different topics in the field of drugs,
drug abuse, treatment and prevention that has evolved over many years.
You must do this assignment individually. No two individuals can do the same topic. You
must send me an email as soon as you choose a topic. I will respond as to whether that topic has
been chosen or not.
You will write a report and then present using a PowerPoint to the rest of the class. All work
on this project will be done outside your class time using the available resources. You may use
any available information such as books, magazine articles or journals, textbooks, and/or
internet. You must have at least 4 sources with each of them being from a different
category as listed above.
In your power point presentation, you should have some illustrations, photographs and/or charts
illustrating the topic you are presenting.
You must save your work to a pin drive. You will present your final power point presentation
from the class computer. Make sure your program will open on the classroom computer before
you do your presentation. Be sure to provide credit for any information from your sources.
Rubrics for Written Paper (100 points)
A research paper presents the results of your investigations on a selected topic. Based on your
own thoughts and the facts and ideas you have gathered from a variety of sources, a research
paper is a creation that is uniquely yours. The experience of gathering, interpreting, and
documenting information, developing and organizing ideas and conclusions, and communicating
them clearly will prove to be an important and satisfying part of your education There are many approaches to research—an essential part of every business and profession—and
many ways to documented findings. The library has books, which will help you, and most
English composition textbooks contain chapters on research techniques and style.
The manuscript should be typed on one side of standard sized white bond paper. Erasable bond
and onion skin are not acceptable. One-inch margins at the top, bottom right and left sides are
required. The font should be in Times New Roman with a size of 12. The body of the paper
should be a minimum of 3 pages and no more than 6 pages. (This total should not include
charts, graphs, pictures, title page, abstract, or bibliography.)
Double spacing is required throughout the paper. Double-space after every line of the title,
headings, quotations, references, etc. Do not single or one-and-a-half space.
Each page is numbered consecutively, including title page and reference page(s). Type numbers in the
upper right-hand corner using Arabic numerals. Arrange the pages of the manuscript as follows:
• Title page numbered 1
• Abstract (separate page numbered 2)
• Text (start on a new page numbered 3)
• Pages with figures or charts are not numbered
The title itself is typed in uppercase and lowercase letters, centered on the page. If the title
requires more than one line, double-space between all the lines. Your name, date and class
should be in the lower right corner of the title page.
The abstract is a brief (100-150 words) comprehensive summary of the research paper. The
number 2 is typed in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The word ‘Abstract’ is centered as
the first line of type on this page. Type the abstract as a single paragraph in block format.
Within the text, paragraphs are indented five to seven spaces (which translates into about a ½
inch on word processors). The only exception to this requirement are the abstract, block
quotations, titles and headings, entries in the reference list, table titles and notes (if any), and
figure captions, which require no indent.
The reference list begins on a new page. Type the word References centered at the top of the
page. Double-space all reference entries. Indent the first line of each entry; the second and
succeeding lines in references should be typed flush to the left-hand margin. It is understood that
when the document is published in a journal, references will appear in a hanging indent format.
All references should be done according to APA guidelines. There are books in the library and I
have one if you wish to see the proper setup for the bibliography. You may use any available
information such as books, magazine articles or journals, textbooks, and/or internet. You must
have at least 4 sources with one of them being from each of the categories listed above. All
references should have annotated bibliographies. An annotated bibliography is written the
same as a regular bibliography except there are commentaries written by you telling your reader
the particular virtues of that resource. Commentaries should be concise, economical summaries, written in sentence fragments: if related, fragments should be connected with semicolons. The
commentary should begin on a new line, indented slightly from the preceding line.
Parenthetical citations should be used within the body of the manuscript when referring to a
certain reference. An example—Earl N. Meyer and Tess Tube were scientists that had opposing
views on this subject (Crump, 1999). All references should be written as an annotated
