EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY

TEXTBOOK CHAPTER TOPIC

Choose a topic from a chapter in the textbook and follow the directions below.

Extra Credit Directions: Write a two-page paper exploring the topic you have chosen. Use two references and your book may be used as a third reference. Wikipedia is not a permitted reference resource, but it may help you to find additional information on the topic. Do not cut and paste from a website (plagiarism!), the work must be your own. The paper must be in APA format, complete with APA title page, double-spaced, Times New Roman font, font size 12, and an APA formatted reference page. Any variation from APA formatting will result in an unaccepted paper. By doing this assignment you will help your grade, learn the topic in one of the textbook's chapters, and improve your ability to produce an APA formatted paper. Help with APA formatting can be found here: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

See me with any questions regarding this assignment. I will review any aspect of your work to help you complete the paper.
