Your weekly papers must explain/summarize the major findings and themes from the assigned readings in an essay formatted to APA standards to include a reference page.
In summarizing the readings, areas you should consider addressing include 1) What research question(s) were the author(s) addressing?; 2) Why was the research question relevant?; 3) How did the author(s) test their research question(s)?; 4)Where did the data come from?; 5) What variables were involved in their research?; 6) What did the author(s) find?; and, 7) What was important about the research findings? You do not need to touch on each of these issues, but they are examples of ones you could address in your paper.
At a minimum, your papers must address all assigned readings for this week. Do not include directly quoted material in your papers. All information in your papers must be paraphrased and properly cited in APA format in the text of your response and reference section.
