This semester you will write an Applied Final Project titled, Application of Psychology Paper. The final paper will be due during Week 7. The paper provides you an opportunity to apply psychological theory and research in the exploration of the book or film you submitted for approval during Week 2. (Recall, submission was made via the Application of Psychology Topic forum).
This week, your goal is to briefly outline the major sections of the Application of Psychology Paper, providing references at the end of your outline in APA Format. Two of the references used must be from scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles. Your outline should be 2-4 pages and be descriiptive enough that I can get a sense of what the content of your paper will include. This is imperative so I can give you good feedback on your outline to enhance your final paper.
Please look at the outline tips document created especially for this assignment as well as this sample outline from a previous student. The outline tips document is important. It connects you with tips, guidelines, and resources to build the outline. Please note that the student sample outline uses complete sentences. This is not required for a good outline, but the level of detail in the content is what is required. The sample outline is a product from a student who did well and was willing to share his outline as an example for future classes. Please, do not duplicate the movie, disorder, or content of this example outline in any way.
Application of Psychology Final Paper Outline Tips
1. Use proper organization strategies. Think about this paper as a five section essay that you have likely been exposed to throughout your academic career. Specifically, 5 section essays have an introduction, 3 body sections, and a conclusion section. In the introduction paragraph, you are briefly introducing your topic and stating the purpose of your paper. Your thesis statement should be something like “In this paper, I will explore the symptoms, lifestyle impact, and treatments of X psychological disorder through character X in movie X. To accomplish this, I will briefly summarize the movie, explore X disorder, and then describe how x character experiences X disorder.” Then, your three body sections would be the movie/character summary, the research on the disorder, and then describing the disorder through the character. The last section would be your conclusion paragraph where you make some general conclusions and restate the purpose of your paper (how you achieved your purpose) to close out your paper.
All papers may not be amenable to this format based on the topic, but many are. Some other formats I have seen are where people explore three psychological concepts so the three concepts are their body sections. Within each concept, though, they apply it to the character before moving on to the next concept. This is perfectly acceptable as well.
2. Use bullet points not complete sentences throughout. This is not a mini version of your paper, but an outline of the main concepts to cover. On the flip side, you must provide enough detail in your bullets that I can easily deduce what will be in your paper. This can include themes, major points, facts, etc. in bullet format. Good, thorough outlines can generally be done in 2-3 pages.
3. Provide a summary of the movie/book as if I have never even heard of it before. Your summary needs to stand on its own before you can go into your psychological concepts or I may not have a clue what you are talking about. This is called prepping the reader for what is to come. You do this by having your first main body section being a summary of the movie no matter how you format the rest of your paper.
4. APA format. Your paper AND the reference list must be in APA format. I realize many of you have not used APA before, but I provided links to resources to help you with this. I also provided the UMGC resource to assist you with APA. Please note you do not need an abstract for the paper or abstract, however, and the 5 pages required for the final paper DOES NOT include title or reference pages.
5. Be sure to actually cite your media used. APA has rules on how to cite films and books, so when you are talking about them, you cite them in your paper and in the reference section. APA uses parenthetical reference style. Again, you can get more information from the resources I have provided.
6. You MUST have some peer-reviewed academic references. Just citing websites or popular resources online by psychologists is insufficient. A peer-reviewed publication is one that underwent a blind review and received approval to be published in a scientific journal. I have provided you tips on how to search for peer-reviewed academic publications in the Application

of Psychology Paper folder.
