[SOLVED] Development of a City
For this term paper, you will demonstrate your understanding of material from throughout the course by presenting the development for a western city. The city you present can be any city in the western culture, except New York City or Los Angeles. It can be your hometown, a city you have visited often, or simply a city that is interesting to you. This term paper is intended to test your ability to think independently and apply your knowledge of general course concepts to a specific case. As such, the guidelines for this paper are fairly broad. In general, successful papers will include a discussion of the following: why you picked your particular city, its geographic location, historical and urban significance, demographic changes, current socioeconomic characteristics, and challenges in the development of the city. You need to include at least four concepts, topics, or models covered in lectures (e.g. primary factors leading to emergence of cities, urban land use, gentrification, planning and zoning) and relate them to your chosen city. The total paper should be at least 1,400 words (excluding references), double spaced with 12-pt Times New Roman font. Please submit your paper as .pdf or .docx file. The term paper has a due date at 11:59PM on December 4. If you turn it in late, a 10% penalty will be deducted from your score per calendar day late. I will not accept the term paper after one week past the due date. You must use and cite at least four sources (text, peer-reviewed articles, monograph, etc.). Do not simply quote materials in the text and the source, but paraphrase using your own words. The text or the outside source must be cited using a standard citation style (e.g. APA, MLA). Wikipedia is not a reliable source. You should not cite Wikipedia in this term paper.

However, it should include the following key pieces of information (for journal articles): Author(s) name Year published Article title Journal title Volume Page numbers Here is an example (APA style): Fishman, Elliot. (2016). Cycling as transport. Transport Reviews, 36(1), 18. Pucher, John, & Buehler, Ralph. (2010). Walking and cycling for healthy cities. Built Environment, 36(4), 391-414. Other reference types (e.g. books, websites, newspapers) have different formats. In addition, when you refer to the information obtained from the source (whether peer-reviewed or otherwise) in your essay, you must cite the author and year in parentheses, like so: In a growing number of cities, cycling is increasingly seen as a promising answer to a variety of urban problems, including mobility-related issues such as traffic congestion, urban pollution and transport carbon emissions, but also wider issues of public health and urban vitality (Fishman, 2016; Pucher & Buehler, 2010).
