Project #24042 - Research paper on

1.)   Guidelines for Research Paper

 

 

TOPIC: Impact on working out at a young age with the correlation of depression as we grow old (like seniors) so the question is does working out affect seniors in depression. Talk about starting at a young age and not working out. You can change the topic a bit but it involves working out at a young age, not working out, depression and seniors.  

 

1.)    Go to the library or online and find at least 5 relatively current (within the last 7 years) empirical research articles (not opinion articles, not theoretical articles), which address the questions you selected.  I will discuss in detail in class what an empirical research article is.  Generally, you are looking for articles in which a group of people were sampled, statistical analyses were run on the data, and conclusions were made based on the data and not someone’s personal opinions.  The best way to find this kind of article is to go to the main terminals in the library and get into the Psych Info/Psycho Articles network or the ERIC network, and begin searching by main topic words.  The computer will come up with a list of journal articles that you can look up based on your topic search.  It should five you an abstract (summary) of the article so that you can decide if it is really what you are looking for before you go and look it up in the journal section.  There may be opinion and theory articles mixed into these databases, so be sure to obtain research articles.  Come and talk to me if you need help with learning to find the right kind of articles.

 

You may also include sources that are non-empirical which seem relevant to you.  These are unrestricted and you may find them in pop culture magazines, legal policies, etc., but they will not count as one of the 5 research articles required.  They must also be of only an additive focus in your paper, whereas the research articles will be the source of the bulk of your information.

 

2.)   Third, write about a 7-10 page paper discussing what you learned about your topic.  Within the paper, provide an overview of the research findings for your topic, discussing each study briefly.  The main points that you should include when discussing each study are:  1.) what was measured, 2.) who the sample was, and 3.) the general findings.  Do this very briefly.  You should then explore the impact of these research findings on you own role as an educator, a parent, or a member of your community.  Also, discuss your answers to such questions as:  What did you expect to find?  Did you find what you expected to find?  What is your reaction (positive or negative) to the research literature as a whole?  What do you think should be done differently in future studies?  What might be the implications for the present and future state of education in our country?  What does all of this information mean to you as a current/future educator and how will you use it in your career?  You need to focus your discussion on an integration of the findings of all 5 studies as a whole.

 

 

Miscellaneous paper specifications:

1.)   Papers must be typed and double-spaced with reasonable margins (e.g. 1” on left and right).

2.)   Use a reasonably sized font (12 point looks most professional).

3.)    Assign a title to your paper and place it at the top of the first page, with your name in the upper right corner

4.)   Do not use a cover sheet/title page

5.)   Do not use plastic covers

6.)   Staple, do not paper clip, the upper left corner

7.)   Don’t forget to include a reference page, so I can see where you went to look for the sources

8.)   References, (both at the end and throughout the paper) must be done using APA (look in the APA Publications Manual).

9.)   Grading criteria (a total of 150 points are possible)
