DESIGN A TRAINING COURSE
Using what you have learned from this course about cognition and memory, design a program to help improve the success of study habits for college students. Refer to at least three topics covered in the course (i.e., long-term memory, problem solving, language, etc.) and discuss the relevant research pertaining to how your program would be designed to capitalize on what is known about these areas.
Your paper should summarize fundamental issues, questions, and controversies and provide a guidelines regarding how the course might proceed. To accomplish this, you will have to use recent research articles (published within the past five years) to illustrate relevant points. You may use any of a number of electronic databases to find research articles that deal with your topic, including the library and the Internet. The one requirement for your selected research articles is that they must have appeared in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. (You may wish to consult the library staff or your instructor to determine whether a particular journal is peer-reviewed.) You may not use the course text or newspaper or magazine articles as your major reference, but they are sometimes useful when they lead you to an appropriate research article. Avoid simply repeating the articles in summary form; use them within the text of your paper to illustrate important points.
Your paper is to be seven to 10 pages, or about 1,800 words, in length. It must be typed, double spaced, with one-inch margins, and fully referenced in the format specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (see http://www.apastyle.org/index.aspx). Check the Course Schedule in this syllabus for the due date. Your instructor will determine the penalty for late submission of papers.
The paper will be graded on content, organization, and writing mechanics and style. The following rubric will be used to assign points associated with each main topic.
