Task: Write a 4 page paper that summarizes the relevant literature on a theory and topic. The topic that you will be discussing is “Effects of Stress on College Students”. The theory is “Psychological Stress and Coping by Lazarus and Folkman”.
Start with a summary of the important publications about the theory in the review. Then write about existing studies that have looked at your topic. What did they find? The last paragraph should discuss your Research Question and Hypothesis. Here’s your research question and hypothesis:
Research question: What is the difference in stress levels between male and female college students?
Hypothesis: There is a difference in stress levels between male and female college students.
Add a reference page at the end of the paper to give information on your sources. This needs to be a separate page, not part of the 4 page paper. It does not count towards the 4 page requirement.
Be sure and use APA 7 style for citations in the paper and for the reference page. You need to have a minimum of 5 sources for the paper.
Be sure to use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation in the paper.
Remember that you have to use professional journals and books as sources. No websites or nonprofessional publications will be accepted.
