arn about a current not historical political issue or problem
GENERAL PAPER GUIDELINES


Objectives of the Writing Assignment

     Learn about a current not historical political issue or problem

     Develop your Internet and library research skills.

     Evaluate your topic from the perspective of different cultures and viewpoints as well as your own.

     Improve your writing and critical thinking skills.

Topic Selection

You are to choose your own topic that involves American government.  If you have doubts about the topic you selected, please contact the instructor. 

Writing the Bibliography Sheet


     Use the Internet or library to find the sources on your topic from newspapers, journals, or books.

       On a full sheet of paper, type your name, Government 2305, the day & time of your class, and your topic.  Cite at least four (4) sources using MLA (Modern Language Association) guidelines.  Additional sources may be added later.  You may use the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers at the checkout desk of the library or any similar publication to help you write your citations in the correct format.  There are many on-line resources on MLA format that are helpful.

Guidelines for Writing the Paper


     Correct typographical errors by proofreading your final paper.  Use words correctly & eliminate spelling errors by looking up definitions & spellings of words in the dictionary.  Try to eliminate grammatical errors & awkward sentence structures.  Use a variety of sentence patterns & lengths.  Reduce wordiness by not using redundant or irrelevant words in the same sentence, e.g., if you can write a twelve & twenty word sentence expressing the same idea, use the former.  Pay attention to paragraphing & organization by possibly outlining your ideas on paper before writing them in prose.  Superior papers generally must be revised several times.

     Be sure to do your own work.  Your personal effort is better than a polished paper written by someone else.  Dont rely too heavily on the words of the authors.  FAILURE TO DO YOUR OWN WORK IS CONSIDERED PLAGIARISM AND WILL RESULT IN A GRADE OF F FOR THE ASSIGNMENT. 


     Cite all sources.  When you borrow ideas, paraphrase, or quote from someone, acknowledges your sources with footnotes.  (Webster's New World Dictionary defines paraphrase as a rewording of the meaning expressed in something spoken or written.)  Follow the MLA guidelines in citing your sources. 

     To improve your grade, confer with me throughout the writing of the paper.  Dont wait until a few days before the writing assignment is due to discuss any problems about it.

Grading Criteria


     ContentIf you have focused on an issue, address the various sides of the issue and conclude in your paper which one or ones are best and why.  If you are writing about a problem, explain the various solutions to the problem and write about which one or ones are best and why based on your research.  Compare and contrast the different viewpoints of American and/or foreign sources on your topic.

     Paper lengtha minimum of 1000 words of text, type-written double spaced.  This excludes headings or any other non-text lines such as title page and work cited page.  Everything else being equal, the longer your paper, the better.

     OrganizationOrganize your ideas by writing from an outline.

     FocusNarrow your topic.  A focused discussion is better than a broad presentation of a topic that does not cover anything very well.

     Writing stylewith few or no typographical errors, misspelled words, and grammatical errors.  Use proper paragraphing and improve your writing style by revising the paper as many times as necessary.

     Citationsanytime you borrow someones ideas, paraphrase or quote them, cite all sources using MLA guidelines.

     Sources At least 4 sources will be used.  Sources such as Wikipedia, about.com or ask.com are not appropriate sources for an academic paper.  The more you cite and use, the better.  You will not be given credit for using sources from your bibliography unless you actually use and cite them in the body of your paper.

     Foreign sources can add depth and interest to your paper.  Next to your citations of foreign sources, specify the country from which the source was taken.

CLASSICAL VS. OPERANT CONDITIONING

CLASSICAL VS. OPERANT CONDITIONING

The field of behaviorism continues to be captive to two main views of how people function and how they are susceptible to change. Furthermore and of interest to us is how counselors use these modalities to help people create change today. I am speaking of the work of Dr. Pavlov (Classical conditioning) and the work of Dr. Skinner (Operant conditioning). Based on information gathered formulate a 3 to 4 page APA style paper addressing the following:
A description of classical and operant conditioning
A brief synopsis surrounding the positive and negative attributes of both modalities

A detailed exploration of how these modalities still apply to the counseling field today

Guidelines:

1. This assignment should be 3 – 4 pages in length (not including the title and reference page) be certain to cite all sources used for this assignment.

2. make sure that a title and a reference page are part of your assignment.
