Session 1 Journal Article Review
Find a scholarly, peer reviewed, full-text journal article on any topic pertaining to developmental psychology. CCU library’s online full-text journal article search will be helpful in completing this assignment. You may access the CCU library website by clicking on the Clifton Fowler Library link in the left sidebar for this course.
Your article needs to be peer-reviewed, which means experts in the field have reviewed it to ensure its credibility before its publication. In other words, Psychology Today is not an appropriate source, but the International Journal of Group Psychotherapy is appropriate. On the CCU Library website, you can choose to have results limited to only those that have been peer-reviewed and those that are full-text by selecting these options when searching topics. After selecting the “Articles” yellow tab and searching for your topic, click the “Full Text” and “Peer Reviewed” boxes that appear in the left sidebar of your search results to filter only articles that match this criteria and your selected search topic. Reading only an abstract is not sufficient for this assignment; articles must be full-text.
After reading your selected article in full, write a summary paper that is two to three pages (not including your cover page and reference page) in length and follows APA writing guidelines. The following should be included in your summary paper:
What was the purpose for this study?
Identification of participant demographics.
For example, was the study made up of 20 college-aged students at a small liberal arts college or 500 participants referred by inpatient psychiatric hospitals?
What were the results of this study?
What other factors should be considered when making conclusions about the results?
Include a biblical perspective on the topic using relevant Scripture to support your viewpoint.
Include in the reference page a link to the journal article for easy access.
This paper should be two to three pages in length (in addition to a cover page and reference page) and should meet the expectations outlined in the grading rubric. Please use Kail & Cavanaugh (2019) in addition to your journal article for a reference (make sure to reference both on your reference page) and include relevant Scripture references.
To practice searching for appropriate articles on the CCU library website, search for the following full-text journal article and review it to see an example of an appropriate article on this topic. However, you may not use this particular article for your paper:
Yildirim, G., & Özyilmaz Akamca, G. (2017). The effect of outdoor learning activities on the development of preschool children. South African Journal Of Education, 37(2).

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
