IMPORTANT: These ARE NOT opinion papers. Even if you are an expert in this area, you need to support your statements with documentation. You may draw your own conclusions, but at the academic level we need to be able evaluate the foundation of your statements. Otherwise, you are just offering opinions that have little meaning or relevance to the academic community.

You need to be able to apply the course materials to the real world. You should make statements supported by evidence and reasoning, and/or otherwise demonstrate thoughtful analysis of your topic – analysis which show YOUR THOUGHTS on the subject and DOES NOT MERELY REPEAT WHAT SOURCES TELL YOU.

You are free to state a well-informed personal opinion if based on the readings, personal knowledge, training, or experience. HOWEVER, you must objectively justify or defend any statements made that are not expressly supported by the text and cite any other resources using the APA style. You must incorporate supporting documentation from the text or other scholarly sources. The term “informed opinion” refers to an opinion developed from research and study, which means your discussion must have references and in-text citations showing the sources that facilitated the development of your opinion.

Please consult these links if you are unsure what constitutes an appropriate source:

ALWAYS SUPPORT YOUR IDEAS, ARGUMENTS, AND COMMENTS WITH APPROPRIATELY REFERENCED (APA) LITERATURE, THEORY, AND RESEARCH.

REFERENCES AND SOURCES: All references and sources used in this course must be academically sound. You may not use “pop culture” resources such as People or Psychology Today. You may not use “wikis” or various search engine “about” sources such as Wikipedia, eHow.com, Ask.com, About.com, WikiAnswers.com, Answers.com, Answers.Yahoo.com, Answers.google.com, Sociology.about.com, Psychology.about.com, etc.

Whereas documentation is very important to academic writing, an 80% majority of the posts should be in your own words. Directly quoted materials in excess of 20% will be subject to penalty. In addition, I will deduct points for misspelled words, grammatical errors, improper sentence structure and punctuation.
