Writing for Psychology
Writing for Psychology offers a concise, yet thorough guide to successful writing for psychology courses. This theoretically grounded resource covers experimental laboratory reports, term papers (non-experimental research reports), essay exams, and oral presentations. This book thoroughly explains writing as a four-step process involving writing as a tool for thinking and learning, drafting, revising, and editing. The authors provide explicit instruction along with annotated student samples of the experimental lab report, the term paper, and the exam essay. Samples also help to explain effective note taking, annotation of research materials, the keeping of reading-response and research logs, and methods of varying written style. Readers learn how to plan their written projects and how to seek and receive good advice on revising drafts. The book also includes a section on dealing with the most common errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling as well as a concise guide to APA style. For those who need to know the standards for writing in the field of psychology.
