Project #46826 - End of Life Issues Class

Students usually find the study of End of Life issues fascinating.  To further your interest, you have an opportunity to explore a topic of your choice related to the course and write a research paper reflecting what you have learned and wish to convey.  Be sure to "narrow" the scope/focus of the paper.  A "broad overview" of a topic will lose points.

You are to read 6 or more research Journal articles for this project.  Your paper should be 5-6 pages and is to be submitted in your Assignment Folder.  The due date is 11/9.  Be certain to follow APA style in referencing/using citations and in the Reference List.  Reminder:  For information on APA formatting, go tohttp://umuc.edu/library/guides/apa.html

To get you started, click on the Library blue tab at the top of your screen and click on Library Databases or other help as needed.  Select articles from professional journals published by highly regarded organizations such as the Association for Death Education and Counseling, American Psychological Association, American Society on Aging, American Medical Association, and others.  Note:  Online popular or commercial websites are not acceptable.

In the introduction of your paper, let the reader know the purpose; why it is of interest.  Narrow the scope/focus of the paper and then write from the information gleaned in your research.  Be sure to make the paper flow rather than be a collection of bits and pieces.  Summarize your paper well so that it pulls together the information that is enlightening to the reader.

Reminder:  You can get library help online:  http://www.umuc.edu/library/help and http://umuc.edu/library/citationguides.shtml
