You will be using only ONE resource and that is the textbook: Psychological Science 5TH EDITION by
Michael Gazzaniga, Todd Heatherton, Diane Halpern. And the essay will be on ONLY Chapter 15
Section 15.2 What are the most effective treatments? pages 672688.
Summarize the information from the text in your own words ( NO QUOTES AND NO PARAPHRASING)
and give your own opinions about it. Overall, it needs to be 3 pages of summary and 1 page of your
own views. Caution: Summarize only facts Chapter 15 Section 2. DO NOT SUMMARIZE FACTS FROM
ANY OTHER SOURCE.
Guidelines for Expressing your Views ( I will upload it as well) : 1)No Stereotyping. 2)Think
Quantitatively 3)Present opposing arguments: do not day “i believe..” or “i feel”
This paper is an exercise in critical thinking. It is a scientific writing not expressive writing. Write the
paper in 3rd PERSON. When you state an opinion an issue, then you must also back it up by 1) State
a reasonable opposing opinion and an argument that supports it. Then answer the opposing opinion.
OR 2) In about half a page, present an idea for a research study that would provide test of your
opinion, State a specific hypothesis in term of a specific aspect of behavior that you would measure
and how this result would support your hypothesis if it was correct.
