Reaction Paper-The Psychology of Women…

A reaction paper is a paper explaining your reaction to a journal article whose topic is relevant to the course. The paper is a review because your reaction will involve judgment or evaluation; it is an analysis because you will focus on the research methodology and results.

You are writing a formal essay for an academic audience. Your reaction paper should develop one primary idea or perception, support it with specific evidence (examples from your article, etc.), and present both ideas and evidence in clear language and a logical order.

Each paper must be two pages long (may be slightly longer). The paper requires APA format, but not an abstract. APA format, in terms of margins, font, citing, referencing, quoting, and the like, is very important and makes up a significant portion of your paper’s grade. In addition to the APA Guide, the following website should prove valuable to you when writing this paper: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/
