**KIM WOODS** Similarities and Differences in Adolescent Development
Consider the following:
Is the experience of being an adolescent the same for males and females? Is it the same across different historical time periods or eras? What about across different cultures or subpopulations within a culture? This assignment involves exploring similarities and differences in ONE of these areas as related to adolescence:
Choose one of these areas:
- Topic 1: Sex Differences (Male vs. Female)
- Topic 2: Historical/Era/Period Differences
- Topic 3: Cultural (or Subpopulation) Differences
Use the UOPX library to search for articles that address one of the topics you select (see the 3 topics listed above).
Write a 1000-1500 word paper summarizing your findings. Your paper should include a brief paragraph introducing to the topic (include a thesis), a written review of your research findings (this will compose the body of your paper), and a conclusion paragraph. Papers that don't meet the minimum word count will receive deductions for the missing content.
Note for Topic 1 - Sex and gender are NOT the same thing. If you don't already know the difference between the two, please ensure you look up the definitions for "sex" and "gender" and/or read the articles I posted in the Student Materials section of these directions.
APA always requires the same structure for any research paper:
Include at least four (4) references from peer-reviewed journals from the psychology discipline. These must be from the year 2000 or newer. No old research articles! You will lose points for using old research or using non-psychology journals.
Format your paper according to APA standards. Use subheadings!
