Regarding your final paper, please review the requirements from the syllabus, which I am copying again here: 

“Final Paper: Your final paper will be broken down into two sections. 

 

Section One:

·
Select an adolescent individual from past or present and introduce them by providing a full profile.  Include their psychological, social, and physical health as well as their demographic information in your description.  This individual can be yourself, someone you know, chosen from a case study, or a character from film, television or literature. 

·
Explain why you have chosen to focus on this individual.

·
Describe at least one
 
defining event or circumstance that influenced this individual and had (or will likely have) either a positive or negative effect on their future.  This should be related to the topic for Part II.  Explain.  

Section Two:  

1. 
Select a 
topic, concept, or theory of Adolescent Psychology and Development
 that we covered this semester. Example: Adolescent Health and its future implications in adulthood, including individuals and information from the film, Fed Up.  (Select your chosen topic from our textbook, or a film, article or other publication that we have reviewed).  You must also include an additional outside source for your research.  

-This topic, concept or theory must be applicable to Part I.

-Your sources must include our textbook, as well as at least one other publication. (Book, textbook, article, study, paper etc.)

2. 
Provide your own interpretations of what this concept entails.  Clearly explain and describe this concept as it pertains to Adolescent Psychology, and/or positive psychology in relation to adolescent psychology. 

3. 
Explain why you have chosen to focus on this particular area. 

4. 
Describe how this topic is relevant to the individual from part I.

5.  
Include any other details or explanation that you find relevant to your point.” 

So to recap, you will 1) choose and adolescent individual (either real or from tv/movies/books), 2) you will discuss why you chose them, 3) you will relay a defining event or circumstance in their lives, 4) you will choose a theory or topic from this semester that pertains to your chosen person and discuss in detail the various aspects of the theory or topic you’ve chosen (like a literature review), 4) explain why you chose this area, 5) explain why this area you chose is relevant to your character, 5) include any other information that might be helpful. Further – 
you will need to use APA citation guidelines . I will be deducting points for failing to adhere to these standards. For reference you can look here 


. I expect you all to reference your textbook 
and at least one other scholarly work (a different textbook, a peer reviewed journal, or some other reputable source of information). 

This paper should be a minimum of five pages (not including cover page or reference sheet) double spaced, times new roman 12 font. This paper is 28 points of your final grade. If anyone has any questions please feel free to email me. If you’re uncertain about who to choose or focus on, you can get in touch with me via email. You can also reach out to confirm that who you’ve chosen will work. I am here to help if you need.  

If anyone has any questions about the final paper, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Some questions that I’ve answered over email that I will post here: 

-This assignment should be in the third person, like most academic papers, and in an academic/clinical tone.  I will deduct points for writing in an overly casual tone. 

-The crux of the paper is connecting a topic that we covered in class (and a developmental theory to connect with) to a character of your choosing. It is easier to do this with a fictional character than someone in real life. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to ask me. 

-The main part of this paper is discussing the topic of interest from our weekly readings in detail, and then connecting it to your character of choice. 

-you are only to cite 
peer-reviewed journalarticles. Not some random website about health, The NY Times, what your friend posted on Facebook, or anything else that wasn’t published in a peer-reviewed research oriented journal. You will lose significant points for citing an article from CNN or VeryWellMind on your final paper. Please let me know if you have any questions!

-I will be deducting points for each instance where you violate APA formatting. That includes the style, the citations, reference sheet, etc. 
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REVIEW WHEN AND WHERE TO PUT IN-TEXT CITATIONS.There are many websites and videos (in addition to the ones I’ve already uploaded on here) to help you learn this. If you have a specific question, please reach out to me (or ya know, Google it first?). This is a silly way for you to lose points on your final grade.  

-The use of ChatGPT will be heavily penalized.
