****USE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA
Instructions to Learners
The data maps for adult obesity on the Center for Disease Control’s website data maps (https://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/prevalence-maps.html) provide a visual display of obesity by race/ethnicity by state. As we learned in our readings for Module 6, race and ethnicity are social-demographic characteristics that impact obesity for a number of reasons. Using the provided, you will review and discuss the rates of obesity by race and ethnicity in your state.
In your essay, please address the following questions:
Which race or ethnicity has the highest rate of obesity in your state? The lowest?
How does your state compare to other states in terms of racial and ethnic differences in obesity?
Finally, using the material assigned for this module, or other scholarly resources of your own finding, discuss why we have differences in rates of obesity by race and ethnicity.
Your essay will be evaluated in terms of how thoroughly you: answer the questions above; use resources to document your main points, and properly cite referenced work. Your essay should address all of the questions above and should consist of approximately 500 words of text (approximately 2 pages of double-spaced and 12 point font of text). Be sure to include specific examples and references from this week’s readings and any additional references you would like to include. Use in-text citations and a reference list that will make up an additional page.
To successfully complete M6.4 Evaluate, you will need to organize your responses to the questions and then craft a formatted essay that includes each of the following:
A title page.
A well-developed introductory paragraph explaining the purpose of the essay and briefly referencing some of the main points/contentions offered in the essay.
The body of the essay should consist of your effort to best answer the primary questions from the assignment prompt and should consist of approximately 500 words of text (approximately 2 pages of double-spaced and 12 point font of text). Though the method by which this is done is largely up to you, it is essential that the responses to the questions in the prompt be based upon scholarly readings and should remain at all times defensible (in an academic sense). You have a great deal of information to draw from in creating your essay, including the assigned readings and hyperlinked sources in the Module Notes. As is the case with every assignment in SOC221, presenting any unsubstantiated, illogical, or indefensible position will have an adverse effect on the final grade. Please direct any questions regarding these expectations to the instructor.
A concise concluding paragraph that briefly restates both the purpose of the essay as well as some of the primary argument offered by you, the essay’s author. Be sure the concluding paragraph does not introduce new information.
A list of all sources consulted the preparation of the essay. The essay should be formatted according to APA-style documentation. (Links to an external site.) This includes the format of the list of references.
