    IMPORTANT ANSWER GUIDELINES
  • Chapter 3 could have concepts relevant to answers for section A or B; however, you may not use a chapter twice in the assignment. For instance, if you choose to use economic distress in the quality of prenatal care to answer section A then you cannot use economic disadvantage and access to health care in your answer for section B.
  • You may not use the same topic you chose to present in Writing Assignment 1 from chapters 2 through 5 as a concept or answer for any section of Writing Assignment 2.
  • In other words, no self-plagiarism from any chapter or other assignment for this class or another class you have had during your educational career.
  • You are required to have 4 outside references so every section must have both your textbook and an outside reference cited appropriately.
  • Your 4 professional references must be from professional journals or books written by professional authors. Such references might include American Psychologist, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Child Development, Developmental Psychology, Journal of Family Issues, educational or professional Internet references. Your paper may include references from other textbooks, lay Internet references, lecture notes, and lay magazines (e.g. Newsweek, Time, and Psychology Today) but these must be in addition to your four professional references and your textbook, and will not count for extra credit.
  • You may NOT use the same outside professional reference for more than one section answer. You are required to use your textbook when answering each section, A, B, C, and D.
  • You may NOT use an APA software program to format your paper. You are encouraged to use the APA handouts and tutorial available to you in the Writing Assignzment folder. You may also use the scoring rubric for the assignment while you are writing to ensure that you understand each section of the paper and how it will be graded.
