Find a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article related to an aspect of children's physical, cognitive, or social development. Summarize the main points of the article, compare/contrast the article to information learned in class, and provide a write-up of the article for a general audience.
Things to think about when writing for a general audience:
The purpose of this assignment is to give students the opportunity to learn about one aspect of child development in more depth and to more fully understand the topic by explaining it to individuals who do not have any relevant background knowledge. It will also give students the opportunity to see how research can be applied in the real world.
The paper should be approximately 2-4 pages double-spaced, typed, and stapled. Late or e-mailed papers WILL NOT be accepted. You must be in class at the time the papers are collected, otherwise your paper will be considered to be late.
For this paper, you must use proper APA style in-text citations and you must also provide an APA style reference page at the end of your paper. Note that I am only requiring that students follow APA style for the in-text citations and the references. You do NOT need to attach a hard copy of the article to your paper, just be sure to include the reference for the article on the reference page of your paper.
