White paper-Wazoo

Working hypothesis #1:
Paying college athletes would help colleges give more academic scholarships and have athletes focus more on their sport.

Working hypothesis #2: scholarships are worth near nothing to athletes and they should get paid as well.

Im trying to further narrow this down into talking about just football and basket ball because they bring in the most revenue out of all the other sports.

3 Counter agrument- College athletes already recieve the benefits of going to school for free as well as living at school for free so their pay is equivalent to being on scholarship for 4 years.

Counter argument- Paying college athletes based on their sports revenue would lead to unfair pay of those athletes of other sports.

4 State of my paper: I am a little overwhelmed but also excited to dive into this paper. I am starting all of my re writes as well as the annotated bib. But i dont have 10- 15 sources, so can i add more sources and add them to my re writes? I think im in good shape, i just cannot fall behind as the work load starts getting heavier and I should be good.

    There’s material here you can use to produce your Annotated Bibliography, Wazoo, but you’ll have to format it to match the model Annotated Bib provided in the assignment.

    For example, you need a legitimate AP citation for each of the sources in your Bibliography. I followed the bit.ly link you provided for your first source titled “Used Goods” and used the “Cite This” feature on the page it took me to. The result is a bibliographic entry that looks like this:

    1. Beamon, K. (2008). “Used Goods”: Former African American College Student-Athletes’ Perception of Exploitation by Division I Universities. The Journal of Negro Education, 77(4), 352-364. Retrieved from http://www.jstor.org/stable/25608704

    If you did that 10-15 times, you’d have a Bibliography, but it wouldn’t be an Annotated Bibliography. For that, you’ll need to produce the two short paragraphs that are supposed to be part of every White Paper and every Annotated Bibliography entry. When complete, your entry might look something like this:

    1. Beamon, K. (2008). “Used Goods”: Former African American College Student-Athletes’ Perception of Exploitation by Division I Universities. The Journal of Negro Education, 77(4), 352-364. Retrieved from http://www.jstor.org/stable/25608704

    Background: The authors make a strong case that African-American college students accepted to colleges on the basis of their athletic ability, and granted scholarships to attend those colleges, are routinely exploited for this skills while not being provided the promised college education that was supposed to be part of the deal.

    How I Used It: For my paper, the article provided strong evidence that NCAA college athletic programs are hypocritical when they used the term “student athlete” to describe their full scholarship players, many of whom would never have qualified for admittance on their scholastic merits. The schools do not prepare these athletes for life after college sports with the tragic result that athletes who do graduate have no career skills; even more tragic, many promising talents get injured and lose their spot on the team, have their scholarships yanked, and end up leaving school without so much as a meaningless diploma.

    Keep in mind I didn’t read the article, Wazoo, so these invented entries might not in any way reflect the actual content of your source. You’ll need to produce your own entries.

    At this point in the semester, there’s no point making changes to your White Paper. It was just a tool to help you gather sources. Just collect and utilize 10-15 sources and produce an Annotated Bibliography that provides a citation, a Background, and a How I Used It section for each.
