10 – 12
Double spaced page paper in APA format
Please 5 references provided in APA style
CHOSEN TOPIC: How does attachment style influence later parenting?
Instructions: You should focus on finding information on your topic beyond what is presented in your book. This means that your paper should demonstrate that you have thought about and understand your topic beyond the level that is provided by a single source. Your paper should provide a comprehensive explanation of the topic, an example of how this topic applies to the daily lives of developing children and adults, and provide specific examples of how this topic could be better understood. Your topic should be somewhat specific (e.g., learning a second language in adolescence). More general topics (e.g., language development) are not encouraged.
Since your book (the same book as last time) must not be your only reference, you are to seek information on your topic from empirical journal articles or non-textbook book chapters. While your book cannot be your only source, your textbook will cite journal articles and book chapters that you are encouraged to explore as potential additional sources. You can also go to the library and check out a book on your topic, or run a search of journal articles on the library’s website. Sources such as Wikipedia, which rely primarily on amateur contributions, are not acceptable.
Grading: This assignment is worth up to 100 points. Grades will be awarded based on your understanding and elaboration of the topic, as well as the rubric below.
