I need an explanation for this Psychology question to help me study.
- MAIN POST
This week, you will be going to the Keiser e-Library to gather research for your argumentative research paper. When you find articles, what will you do with them? You will take these and begin crafting a formal proposal as well, where you demonstrate you have done research on the topic you picked.
For this discussion, choose one of the following two readings:
- Option 1 – Adler, M. J. (2014). How to mark a book. In G.H. Muller (Ed.), The McGraw-Hill Reader: Issues Across the Disciplines pp. 16-21. New York. NY: McGraw-Hill.
- p. 21, “Writing,” Question 3: Writing an Argument: Argue for or against the proposition that this essay has lost its relevance owing to the introduction of new forms of educational media.
- Be sure to quote and cite Adler when writing your response.
- Option 2 – Carr, N. (2014). Does the internet make you smarter or dumber? In G.H. Muller (Ed.), The McGraw-Hill Reader: Issues Across the Disciplines pp. 21-25. New York. NY: McGraw-Hill.
- p. 25, “Writing,” Question 3; Writing an Argument: Agree or disagree with Carr’s claim that people “who read texts studded with links … comprehend less than those who read traditional linear texts.”
- Be sure to quote and cite Carr when writing your response.
First, read the article carefully. Answer the question associated with the reading. (100+ words)
Second, we want you to do more than just answer a question. Think about what the author is suggesting you do in your research. How will you apply these ideas to the research you gather, including the assigned essay, academic research from the database, and general research from the internet? (100+ words)
Third and finally, review the three versions of proposals for writing. Explore the merits of each type of proposal. Identify which version you believe would most support your intended major writing assignment for this course and why. (100+ words)
- In 100-150 words, respond to two peers’ main posts. Examine whether each post clearly supports the peer’s ideas about the merits of each proposal and the choice of proposal format for the intended major writing assignment. Offer your ideas as to other ways of seeing the value in one or more of the proposed proposal formats.
- Main post is due by Wednesday at 11:59 PM Eastern. No credit will be awarded for late posts without instructor approval.
- Peer post should be posted on a different day from the main post and no later than Sunday at 11:59 PM Eastern.
- Use objective point of view only rather than subjective. (See page G-8 for an explanation.)
