Assignment Instructions

Write a 1,050-word paper in which you define cognitive psychology. Address the following:

•Identify at least four key milestones in the development of cognitive psychology as a discipline. Each of these milestones should be written about in a separate paragraph, supported by evidence from the readings. Make it clear why each milestone was important in creating the discipline of cognitive psychology. Make sure to clearly identify each milestone as such (subheadings are key here).

•Discuss the importance of behavioral observation in cognitive psychology. Be specific - provide a brief definition of behavioral observation first (don't assume the reader will know), and offer a comprehensive discussion of what makes this strategy so important in cognitive psychology

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. PLEASE ASK IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS.

Tips or Hints for Success

A.This first paper will be a good opportunity for you to start using subheadings when writing scholarly papers. This will help you organize your ideas so you can make sure you address each component of the assignment. Think of subheadings as a descriptive header that lets the reader know what to expect in the paragraphs that are underneath that subheading. Not every paragraph needs a subheading, but major sections should have them. It may be useful to think about the major components of the paper and break it down into subheadings that you think you might need. For this paper, you might have a subheading entitled - Major milestones in cognitive psychology. Then you should have at least 4 paragraphs below that subheading (1 paragraph for each milestone). Then you might have another subheading entitled - Role of behavioral observation. Below that would be your information on that topic. You may only have these 2 subheadings in this cognitive psychology paper. Check out the Purdue website for information on how to properly format subheadings in APA style.

B.Applicable student resources:

•Purdue OWL APA Formatting website (link in ‘Student Resources')

•APA Publication Manual 6th edition

•UOP Center for Writing Excellence

C.Content tips:

•Milestones refers to the major breakthroughs or theories that are really considered CRUCIAL in developing the field of cognitive psychology overall. Some things you could discuss are: neuroscientific advancements, artificial intelligence, information processing models, the fall of behaviorism, the influence of Greek philosophy, etc.

•Do not write about famous theorists in psychology (for example, your paper should not be 4 paragraphs about individuals like Skinner, Beck, Ellis, Freud, Piaget, Watson, etc.). This is about COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY as a discipline, not psychology more generally.

•DO NOT USE DIRECT QUOTES. ALL MATERIAL MUST BE WRITTEN IN YOUR OWN WORDS , MEANING PARAPHRASED/SUMMARIZED, WITH A PROPERLY FORMATTED CITATION TO SUPPORT YOUR IDEAS WITH EVIDENCE. CITATIONS ARE REQUIRED; QUOTES ARE NOT PERMITTED. THEY ARE DIFFERENT - ASK ABOUT THIS IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.
