The goal of this essay is to give you the opportunity to produce a critique of your two textbooks. Now this isn’t a rant or an opinion piece. You are to critique the publication, grammatical, empirical research issues that “have bugged you” this term.
APA: form – demonstrated clarity organization – thesis, position, conclusion paragraphs, appropriate headings citations and references grammatical errors font and size
Here are some tips about writing the “critique” that may help you:
we talked about the pros and cons of our new books, which are now in their second year of use in this class. I said that these books give us the best of both worlds – imagery of working with addicted individuals, which is good and a stark lack of empirical evidence from their purported research support for each author’s assertions.
1. a minimum of two Level 2 APA headings in the paper – I could see the possibility of three headings.
2. in-text citations and references for the two books (and any other source you might feel the need to use).
3. The entire paper will be two (2) to three (3) pages, 1 1/2 line spacing is acceptable, Times New Roman 12.
