final paper written on B.F. Skinner that you worked on for me a couple weeks ago. If you need a copy of the other paper you have written me let me know. Thanks
The Research Paper is due on Saturday of Week Six. Each student will pick one historical theorist featured in the text but not discussed extensively in class. They include:
B. F. Skinner
Milicent W. Shinn
John Broadus Watson
Ethel Puffer Howes
Rollo Reese May
Students will perform in-depth research on their chosen theorist and present his/her findings in an 6-8 page paper (excluding the title page, abstract, reference page, and Annotated Bibliography) which will address the following sections:
Your Final Paper should include the following:
Title page in APA format (Times New Roman, 12 font only)
The below areas are required subheadings that must be included within your paper.
Biography: A biography of the theorist (1-2 pages). The biography portion of the paper should be brief and relevant to the purpose of the paper (Written in third person, Times New Roman, 12 font only).
Contributions: A detailed explanation of the theorist's most important contribution to the field (what they are best known for) and description of their empirical research methodologies (2-3 pages) (Written in third person, Times New Roman, 12 font only).
Evaluation: A critical evaluation of the theory from industry professionals (what are the challenges, strengths, limitations of the theory in psychology today?) (2-3 pages). (Written in third person, Times New Roman, 12 font only).
Personal Response: A personal response to the theory written in 3rd person. Using the concepts contained within your chosen theory, evaluate how you see the components of this theory in your everyday life.
This should not be a discussion of your personal life, but a selection of concepts applied to your life as you see them through the eyes/concepts of the theorist. What and how does each concept apply and is currently working in your life (1-2 pages) (Written in third person, Times New Roman, 12 font only)?
