Your assignment in this lesson is a personal Project-Based essay.
This essay is based on previous learning activities and information we
have examined from our text and assignments. Previously you completed your:
- Introductory paragraph with thesis statement
- Previous writings on specific theorists
Using a word processor, complete the following:
You should revise the introductory paragraph based on your
instructor's feedback and thesis statement to begin this assignment.
You will then write a 2 to 3 page essay based on the following:
- Choose ONE theory from our previous
weeks, e.g., Week 4 (learning theories), Week 7 (theories of emotion),
Week 8 (theories of development) or Week 9 (theories of Freud, Jung,
Adler, or Horney).
- Reflect on this theory and choose ONE
person who you would like to write about, expounding upon this theory.
This person may be self, friend, family member, or even a celebrity.
- Think about your chosen theory.
Remember, you are applying what we have learned in our class when
writing this paper, using self, friend, family member, or even a
celebrity as your person of choice. Therefore, your paper should have
scholarly sources, such as our text, to back up your statements.
- Write! When writing at the college level there are guidelines we must follow in writing a college level academic paper.
Each paper must have:
- Title Page – includes title of paper, name, date, and course. (Please remember the title page stands alone as its own page.)
- Thesis Statement – Use Week 10 and
instructor’s feedback to improve and revise. [To read more about thesis
