Assignment 4 – Due 9/30
Summary of primary paper:
For the purpose of this assignment, you will need to write 2 page (double spaced, 12 font times new roman) summary of primary page selection (or the paper selection that you were granted). In this summary, you will need to condense the primary paper to its main points and to do so in your own words. To include every detail is neither necessary nor desirable. Instead, you should extract only those elements which you think are most important. Try to ask yourself, why was this paper published?, why is it exciting?, what do you take away from this paper?, how does it help you?. By trying to answer these questions in your own words, you will be able to get to the summary of your primary paper.
Assignment 5 – Due 10/14
From the bibliography or work cited section of your primary paper (the paper that you “won”), choose three (3) additional supplemental papers. Keep in mind when you make your selections of supplemental papers, that they must be close or related to your primary paper. The idea here is that you want to build upon your primary paper by using the supplemental papers that the actual authors used when they intially wrote their papers.
Criteria for selecting supplemental papers:
They must be from peer-reviewed academic journals. Peer reviewed journal articles are academic papers which undergo double blind expert review by experts. To determine if they come from journal, just look for “Journal” within the bibliography cited papers. Do not pick magazines, or just simple accounting standards. Copy your selections in the following manner -Last Name first, First name only first later, Year of publication, Title of the article, journal name. Here is an example:
· Van Vugt, M., Hogan, R., & Kaiser, R. B. (2008). Leadership, followership, and evolution: Some lessons from the past. Journl ofAmerican Psychologist, 63(3), 182-196.
Copy your 3 supplemental papers and make your submission under Assignment 5.
Assignment 6 – Due 11/4
Summary of supplemental papers:
For this assignment, you need to write 1-2 pages summary (double spaced, 12 font, times new roman) for each one of your 3 selected supplemental papers from your primary paper. Please refer to Assignment 4, for instructions as to how to write a summary of a paper.
The purpose of this assignment is to help you along the way of writing your final research paper. Eventually, you will combine these summaries with your initial summary (Assignment 4) and use this towards your final paper.
