I’ve been getting some good questions about the Op-ed. Compiling the top ten here. Remember, Op-eds are due to the D2L Dropbox BY THE START OF CLASS on 11/3 (per the syllabus). 1) Strive for 750 words, but +/- 25 words is fine. UPDATE: Word count applies to Op-ed only, not references or headline. 2) You do NOT need an APA-formatted title page. Just your name, class/section, and your (hopefully catchy and interesting) headline at the top of the page. 3) Be careful you’re not trying to cover too much. Focus on one main point. 4) If you’re having a hard time narrowing down a topic you’re passionate about, one idea is to check the research. If there’s more research available on one topic than another, that gives you more to work with and cite. (Remember, you’ll have another Op-ed assignment later in the semester, so you can write about another topic then.) 5) Research articles will likely SUPPORT (rather than be) your main point. Use them to strengthen your argument and show your reader how/why you know what you’re talking about and why your thoughts/opinions are well-founded. Article information might go best in your introduction if the article makes a strong statement about your main point, OR they could be integrated into the body of your paper, where you’re offering examples for your argument. 5) Don’t forget to submit the full articles you used with your paper. If you can’t submit all three files together in the Dropbox because of format, e-mail your articles – not the op-ed – to your TA by the deadline. Op-ed should still be submitted to D2L or it won’t be graded. 6) Podcasts (even if scientific) don’t count for an article. I’ll only accept research articles from academic journals. However, if you like an APA podcast, for example, note the speaker and see if they’ve contributed to any research in the field. That might be a good start. 7) I shared resources on APA format and passive/active voice in the Content area of D2L. Use them! 8) Don’t utilize your textbook to quote a definition. You’ll lose your reader if you tell them what self-esteem or prejudice is according to your textbook authors. Only define something if it’s not common knowledge (i.e., if your typical reader doesn’t know what it is), and even then, it’s best to define in your own words rather than a quote. Instead, use your textbook to reference and expound on a concept related to your topic (e.g., self-fulfilling prophecy, specific stereotypes, dual-process model). It’s also fine if you want to look ahead to future chapters and use something from those. We haven’t yet covered aggression, attraction, intimate relationships, or prosocial behavior, but there’s lots of rich information available there. 9) Also, research cited in your textbook would not count as a textbook reference (that’s not from the textbook authors but from other researchers). BUT, you could look up that original article and potentially use it as a research article if it fits the requirements. 10) Per APA format, use an in-text citation whenever you quote, paraphrase or summarize research and ideas that are not your own. This may include theories, statistics, etc. You should also cite whenever you present a fact that is not common knowledge.More Assessment Samples: Contemporary Organizational Behaviour »Genetic Engineering
