Instructions for Expository Essay Proposal and thesis

 

Expository Essay Proposal and Thesis DUE Saturday 11/7/15 BY 6 pm Pacific standard Time

 

The short writing assignment is graded on a twenty point scale. It will propose your thesis for the final paper and cite three references, one of which may be our text. Your paper will set forth a current issue of concern in society, and will explain how at least three different schools of thought in the history of psychology have influenced current thinking and practices in that area.

 

The thesis (main idea) of your paper must be explaining the way in which three historical figures or schools of thought influenced the field of psychology as we know it today. For example, if you elect to write an essay on Discipline in parenting (a current social concern) you might explain how the Psychodynamic, Behavioral and the Humanistic movements in psychological history have contributed to attitudes and practices today. If you want to discuss Artificial Intelligence, you could address how structuralism, Gestalt psychology and cognitive psychology have influenced the creation of this field of study.

 

 If you like, you can listen to podcasts about many of the characters and themes of psychology by downloading talks from This Week in the History of Psychology on the iTunes web site.

 

The body of the essay will be 2-4 pages in length, plus a title page and reference page - an abstract is not required. Your final paper, however, will be in full APA style, including an abstract.

 

All writing must be original - no copy and paste from any other document or web site. Your work will be checked using SafeAssign, a Blackboard plagiarism checker. You can re-submit your assignment as often as you like up until the due date and time. Use quotes sparingly, and only if the wording of the idea is especially pertinent to your point. All direct quotes should be short and documented with the page number in the reference citation so we can locate the precise source of the quote.

 

 

 

1. A title page, including author, date, and course assignment

 

2. An introductory paragraph describing an area of current social concern or psychological research and outlining the three or more schools of thought that were influential in shaping how psychology treats that topic today. Use third person, which means you may state, "this writer believes that..,"  Do not use the second-person "YOU" in the paper, as that implies reference to the reader directly.

 

3. One paragraph for each of three influences (think: major theorist or point of view), telling briefly how you think they may have influenced current views. You may amend these in your final paper as your research expands. For each point of view you should have at least one reference, which may include out text as one of the three.

 

 

 

4. A separate reference page, in APA style, listing alphabetically the sources of information used for your essay.

 

Regarding Academic Sources: WIKIPEDIA, allpsych.com., about.com, and other third-party sites are not professional references. Use the National University Library to help you identify professional publications.

 

Your paper must be entirely unique, and written by you alone, not a sting of quotes or re-wording of material from another writer. You may glance through the rest of your text to consider the many directions in which the field has grown. Another good approach is to research the names that became famous in modern psychology and see what sources they mention as contributing to their line of work.
