[SOLVED] Perception and Action
This is a formatted template for students to use for each critical writing homework response. It is formatted according to academic standards taught in high schools and colleges. There are several rules to learn with academic writing however once one learns them it becomes an automatic process. All of the formatting criteria for each weeks chapter assignment are in the course syllabus for students to compare to for accuracy before submitting their assignments for grading. Microsoft Words Home screen, contains all of the formatting tools described in this template. It is always best to practice on something that is not important. When beginning an assignment save the page immediately, dont wait because there is always the possibility of losing ones work. Each page is to look just like this template example with slight variation, as in paragraph size. This page is set for one-inch (1) margins that are on all sides of the page, it is left-justified, which means that only the left margin maintains an even line compared to the right side of the page, which does not have the smooth margin line. Double lines are required as in this example. The font to be used with each homework response is Times New Roman, 12 points (pt.). The first sentence of every paragraph is to be indented by the one-half inch (as in this template). As a guide, paragraphs usually consist of approximately 5-6 sentences that contain specific content information, (specific points) that describe the student’s comprehension of the topic. When writing and presenting points evidence must follow. Evidence is proof, credible published research evidence. In everyday life, individuals do not always look for proof for the things said/professed, whether it is on television, newspaper, or spoken by a friend, or someone that is trying to sell a product. As stated, when describing the chapter reading topics, students must provide evidence for points that are being made. The selected credible source, the textbook contains many published authors acknowledged by the American Psychological Association. When writing critically the absence of evidence is considered to be an assumption, bias, or opinion, the words crumble without evidence and that is why personal pronouns are not to be used when responding to each homework assignment; I, we, us. our, you, are examples of personal pronouns. In academic writing students back up each point, they are presenting with cited quotes. The course syllabus provides a few basic examples of cited quotes. Three chapter quotes are required for each chapter response, two (2) from the textbook and one (1) from the Films on Demand video review. Quotes can be presented in different ways, two (2) examples are: According to Cheche (2020), followed by the quote. (p. 3), or by presenting the quote first to begin or within a sentence then cited as follows: (as cited by Cheche (2020, p. 3). When quoting information from the author(s) other than the textbook authors use the following example: Moruzzi and Magoun (1949), discovered that electrical stimulation of the reticular formation of a sleeping cat caused it to awaken at once, (as cited by Cheche 2020, p.44). What this tells the reader is that it is not Cheches words, rather a credible source used in his text. Dont use et al. which means and others, when first citing three or more authors each are first to be introduced by the last name.
