Effects of Bullying/Cyber bullying
Thoroughly research a topic in child psychology and write a paper that describes your findings. Your paper should include the following:
• Introduction – Identify and describe your topic.
• Body –Present your literature. Consider how the research on your topic supports each other. Is any research in direct opposition to each other? Critically analyze your information. This will be the main part of your paper.
• Conclusion – Provide an overall summary of your findings. How does your topic impact on children and their development? Feel free to provide your opinion.
The paper will be worth 30 points. It must be 5-7 typed pages of text (excluding the title page and reference section), double-spaced, with 1-inch margins. Use a 12- point font. The first line of each paragraph should be indented. Please include a title page, in-text citations, and a reference section. You do not, however, need an abstract. Your in-text citations and references should be in APA style. For material that is quoted, summarized, or paraphrased, you must include in-text citations. In-text citations include the author (s) and the year (e.g., Parsons, 2011). Any direct quotes should be surrounded by quotation marks and include the author(s), year, and page number (e.g., Simpson, 2010, p.13). Use direct quotes sparingly.
You are required to have a minimum of five (5) references. References must be primary sources such as scholarly journals and books. A primary source is a report of an original finding or idea. Sources such as textbooks, newspapers, Wikipedia, and magazines are not primary sources. Journal articles may be empirical; meaning that the authors developed a hypothesis and tested it. You may also use journal articles that review previous research or journal articles that are theoretical.
