I don’t know how to handle this Writing question and need guidance.
The City that I choose is Beijing,China.
Students should choose a city in the world to write a City Profile final paper and create a poster presentation. We will have a sign-up sheet to ensure that there is some diversity in the cities selected. This paper should be 1,750-2,000 words (7-8 double spaced pages, one inch margins, 12 point font). This is an academic paper, so you should rarely use first person, “I.” Points will be deducted for typo and grammar errors. Include the course number, your first and last name, student ID number, and page numbers on every page (as a header or footer). Upload the assignment into Canvas by the due date and time.
You must use American Psychological Association (APA) citation format and include a bibliography/list of references cited. Avoid using Wikipedia for citations; instead, use the citation of the original source where Wikipedia retrieved the information. Using Google Scholar, UCI Library, or another academic publication search engine, read at least three academic articles or books about your selected city. These resources cannot be from the syllabus. You must have at least three direct quote citations (word for word/verbatim text using quotation marks). Again, these resources must be different from the readings assigned in the syllabus.
The Final Paper should address the following:
Where is your city? Insert a map in the paper (be sure to cite)
How large is your city? What is the geographic size and total population?
What makes it interesting/unique?
Why did you select this city to research?
Describe the outline of the sections of your paper (in 2-3 sentences)
When and why was this city created established?
Provide us an overview of the history of the city by selecting 3-5 different time periods, e.g., pre-1900s, 1900-1930s, 1930s-1960s, 1970s-1990, 2000s to present
