Research Paper Assignment Psychology 4: Child Devlopment Fall, 2010 The goals for this assignment are for you to: (1) learn more about an area of child development that interests you; (2) practice researching topics using on-line and other library resources; (3) begin to distinguish between types of sources; (4) learn and use APA format; (5) read an article published in a scientific journal and (6) develop your paper-writing skills. The assignment is due in several steps. 1) Your topic is due on Thursday 9/2 (note: this is different from what is listed in the syllabus).
