Content: Include an introductory paragraph that introduces the topic and conveys the direction you intend to take your discussion during the paper.
Include a concluding paragraph summarizing your paper and the main points you have covered. Be sure not to introduce new information in the conclusion.
Use at least three (3) outside sources (one may be your textbook) to discuss the topic. Use the provided template – it will help you with APA formatting.
Use and define psychological and academic vocabulary in your paper. Maintaining an academic (professional) tone is important.
Avoid the use of first or second person pronouns (I, we, you, us) Avoid contractions (can’t, won’t, should’ve, they’re, etc.).
If you believe that a relevant story from your personal life and experience will best support your topic, keep it to a very small portion of your paper. In this case, the use of “I” is appropriate, but should be used sparingly. The bulk of your paper should be objective and research-based. Be sure to present the topic you choose from the viewpoint of psychological principals and theories, not personal opinion.
Refer to the rubric to help guide your work toward excellence.
Ethical Considerations: 2023 Spring Semester – Dr. K. Polk
Put all information in your own words. If you copy another source too closely, you will lose significant points.
Be sure that you only submit a paper that you yourself have written for this class. Do not submit a paper that has been previously submitted for another class. This is technically self-plagiarism and will significantly lower your score.
