Form groups of three students that have chosen the same topic and prepare a 10-12 page (not including cover page and reference section) research paper that identifies several key issues related to the chosen topic. Incorporate at least 8-10 scholarly, credible, and current references to support your ideas, drawing primarily from scholarly journals and books. Include in-text citations and a reference list in APA format.
“Credible” sources are those from peer-reviewed, or refereered, academic journals. Pop culture magazines, pseudo-science magazines (e.g., Psychology Today), and blogs are not credible sources for the sake of this assignment.
“Current” sources are not more than 10 years old.
Your paper should have a cover sheet that lists 1) group members, 2) the topic you have chosen, 3) submission date (not due date), and the 4) BEHS 343 section number. Your paper should be double spaced, have 1-inch margins, and use a standard font (e.g. Times New Roman, 12 pt.). When uploading your paper, name the file with this format: “Student Name Part 2 BEHS 343 Section Number.”
Be sure to include a reference list at the end of your Part 2 assignment.
Assignment Format and Referencing Style
Use UMUC’s online Guide to Writing and Research for the format, especially for how to cite your references. You may also wish to consult guidelines for APA style. (Do not use footnotes at the bottom of the page; rather, following APA, list your references at the end of the paper.)
Plagiarism is the intentional or unintentional use of another person’s words or ideas without giving credit to the author. Make sure you read chapter 5, Academic Integrity and Documentation, in the Guide to Writing and Research. The UMUC Undergraduate Catalog also contains a lengthy discussion on Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty. In cases of suspected plagiarism, the assignment in question will not be graded and the student may be reported to the Dean for sanction. Sanctions can include failing the assignment, failing the course, or in extreme cases, expulsion from the university.
As you use the Web for information, you should be aware of the fact that the Web has both good and bad information, as well as information that is biased. There are many online resources devoted to finding and evaluating information on the Web. A very detailed discussion of how to evaluate information can be found in the UMUC library website. Do not use Wikipedia as a source for your information.
Finally, sources that tend to have good information include the following: college or university department sites (be careful of student pages; some are very good, but some are not so good), professional organizations, governmental agencies, professional journals, and regularly published newspapers and magazines.
