Paper 2: Research Paper
For this assignment, you will write on a topic related to ONE developmental period. You may pick anything that interests you or that you have a strong connection with as long as it relates to lifespan development. For example, what role does sleep play in adolescent development? Do mental games help elderly adults keep their cognitive skills sharp? The options are endless! Scan the chapters that are related to your chosen developmental period and be sure to choose something specific. The goal is to dig deep into the literature, rather than picking something too broad. If you have a question about a potential paper topic, please message me.
To ensure an equal distribution of people choosing each topic, I created a group set on Canvas so everyone could sign up for a topic. To sign up, go to “People” and “Paper 2 – Topic SignUps.” Papers are due Sundays at 11:59 PM on the week you signed up for. In other words, your chosen topic week will determine the deadline. The sign-up sheet is live and is first come-first served. Once a week is full, you must select a different week. Please sign up by 11:59 PM on Friday, 9/23, or I will assign you to whatever developmental period is remaining. At that time, I will close sign-ups, and you will not be able to change topics. Lastly, I will not remind you when your paper is due – it is up to you to note your deadline!

Read, re-read, and mentally digest it until you have a conversational understanding of the paper. You don’t know what you know until you can talk about it. And if you can’t talk about it, you won’t be able to write about it.
Read selectively. Don’t start by reading the articles from beginning to end. First, read just the abstract to get an overview of the study.
Scan the article to identify the answers to these “Why-What-What-What” questions:
The previous four questions correspond to these parts of a research article:
Create a summary sheet of each article’s key points. This will help you to integrate each article. Read for depth. After you understand an article’s main points, read each section in detail to gain the necessary in-depth understanding to compare the work of different researchers.
