The Paper Prep assignment requires the identification of a topic for the Final Paper, a thesis statement, and an annotated bibliography consisting of 5-7 scholarly sources that will be used in the final paper.
(Please also review the instructions for the final paper before completing this Paper Prep assignment so that you have a big picture of what will be expected in the final paper.)
Note that your assignment is set to be automatically submitted to Turnitin.com. Once you submit your assignment you and I will both receive an Originality Report. In general, Originality Reports returning scores of 25% or higher indicate a warning for potential plagiarism, excluding references.
Select from the list below one historical theorist featured in the course assigned readings but not discussed extensively in class. Theorist options include:
B. F. Skinner
Milicent W. Shinn
John Broadus Watson
Ethel Puffer Howes
Rollo Reese May
Compose your Paper Preparation assignment with the following included:
A title page in APA format (Times New Roman, 12 font only). Title page should have a running head left-aligned at the top, your full name, the course name and number, title of the paper, instructor’s name and date paper is submitted.
A thesis statement stating the primary focus of the paper
Two or three substantial and thorough paragraphs describing the key concepts of the theorist’s theory to be used for the Course Paper.
An annotated bibliography – An annotated bibliography is comprised of an APA formatted list of all articles to be used in a paper or other project with a brief summary under each article’s listing. Its purpose is to assist with the determination of best suited articles for the assignment, and the development of your full paper. You will need to use 5 to 7 peer-reviewed journal articles or other academic publications that are considered to have reliable information. (Popular media sources such as magazines, newspapers, websites, opinion pieces, blogs, Wikipedia, Wikispaces etc. are not considered academic sources.) To help you determine what an appropriate academic source is go to: http://owll.massey.ac.nz/academic-writing/identifying-academic-sources.php
Each annotated bibliography article summary must include the following:
-The article’s author, date of publication, title and journal in which it was published in APA format as you would list it in a References list. (Please see document provided under the Resources tab for help with APA guidelines.)
-Five to seven sentences summarizing the article’s focus. If the article includes research studies, describe the research that was conducted by the article authors (Ex: An experimental study investigating the interaction of short term memory and attention), and major findings.
-A sentence at the end of the summary describing the relevance for using the article in your paper. In other words, how does the article relate to your thesis? How does the article tie-in with the other articles being used?
Article summaries must also include citations (also referred to as source credits) in the body.
Important note: Do NOT save your work as a pdf or use any type of template when completing your assignment or I will not be able to insert comments/feedback on it.
