Please chose a primary source, empirical article that you found related to your topic and summarize it here using the instructions attached (i.e., by primary source I am referring to papers that report empirical data from a study). Please number your answers in an APA style document (e.g., times, 11 point font, double spaced). This article summary will guide you through paraphrasing papers that you read. 

The instructions include an example summary based on an intentionality paper written by Dr. Hughes. If you’d like an illustration of writing an article summary read the paper first and then see how it was summarized.

Student must earn 70% on this assignment before moving forward. If you have trouble with writing please see a tutor in the virtual success center or via smartthinking. I also encourage you to read the article that you intend to summarize at least 3 times if you struggle with scholarly papers.

Students who do not earn 70% on this assignment the first time should consider dropping the course, allocating more time to the course, and/or meeting with a writing tutor regularly. As a a capstone course, students are expected to be able to read and write well before graduating from the program.

Remember, plagiarism in any form is grounds for automatic dismissal from the course. Paraphrase appropriately and avoid quoting. Write about the article without looking at it.
