My paper will examine laziness and depression as a great impact of procrastination. I chose this topic because laziness and depression are serious issues which have led to procrastination. Procrastination is also one of the leading causes of why people fail to perform tasks effectively.
For this paper, you will be graded on your paper using the following scheme. It is always a good idea to “mark” your own paper, prior to submitting it. Please submit this rubric with your paper.
1) The opening paragraph(s) (1/2 page) ____ / 3 points
The first paragraph or two of your paper is designed to introduce the topic of your paper, explain why the topic is important and state the goal or purpose of the paper. The opening paragraph of a paper is also a “hook” that grabs the reader’s attention by telling the reader about why your topic matters.
2) The goal or thesis of your paper (1/3 page) ____ / 3 points
There are two main kinds of paper students are asked to write in social science: a) research papers that involve collecting, analyzing and interpreting data with a goal to discover something new, or b) research papers that involve offering a critical analysis of a topic. State what you think about the topic (e.g., In this paper, I will argue that ….. )
3) The literature review and critique (3 pages) ____ / 16 points (review: 8 / criticism: 8)
Virtually all papers will require that you locate your topic within the scholarly literature. This means that you will have to provide a brief summary of what other people wrote about your topic and show how you are adding something of value to that discussion.
4) Implications (1/2 page) ___ / 8 points
In this next part, you should consider the implications of your paper. If this is a research paper in which you have conducted an experiment or survey, there will be some new results, data or facts on a topic. If this is a paper in which you take a position that finds shortcomings in research on a particular topic, there will be a new position on that topic. New findings and/or a new position will have implications for at least three things, namely (a) theory (i.e., how people think about the topic), (b) method of investigation (i.e., how people research the topic, talk about the topic, measure the phenomenon), and (c) policy (i.e., how people do/implement something). You might say something like “Research on ____ and the criciticsms raised in this paper have important implications for …..”
5) Conclusion (1 paragraph) ___ / 2 points
A conclusion is usually a one-paragraph summary of a) what you found (if it is a research study) or b) what you have concluded based on the review of the research (if it is a review paper or an opinion). The conclusion is an opportunity to underline what else can be done or what you are planning on doing (if it is a research study).
5) Quality of writing ___ / 10 points
This is about how well you have written your paper. This includes, (a) how well you have explained what you think (e.g., is it easy to understand), (b) your choice of words (e.g., say “received” instead of “got” or avoiding slang) and (c) how well you follow APA format for citations and avoid grammatical or spelling mistakes.
Part 1: Summarizing the literature is about (a) making a statement (or a claim) that summarizes the papers you have read and (b) providing examples, from those papers you have read.
Here is an example of a summary statement:
Research on ______ has demonstrated that _____ is _______.
Here is an example of how to provide an example:
A study by XXXXX (2020) survey over 400 people and found that XXXXX.
Complete this example by telling my something about why this is an important study.
Part 2: As you read through these papers, extract the finding that that you would like to showcase in your opening paragraph.
Part 3: Now summarize what all of this says. This will be your thesis (or at least part of it).
These studies support that view that
