INSTRUCTIONS Components for Content Summary

1. Content Summary must be at least 1.5–2.

2. Each summary must include an integration of the Kassin et al. text chapters, Chadee theory chapters, and two journal articles related to each module (found in the Learn Section). o Use your Kassin et al. textbook to navigate the summary. Then, explore specific issues from the text that the Chadee theories book and the required articles also discuss.

3. The Content Summary must be in current APA format, including a cover page, a reference page, and appropriate subheadings (i.e. introduction, summary points, conclusion, etc.).

4. Using sources outside the required Learn Section reading is allowed, but not required.

5. Cite all your sources you used (should include all read items from the Learn Section, as well as any outside sources used) in current APA format.

Use the following outline in your Content Summary:

1. Introduction a. The introduction should be an overall summary of the Learn Section’s reading material (1–2 paragraphs).

2. Body (Summary Points) a. The body of your summary should include 3, using APA-style headings to separate each one, covering 3 of the major points that span across all reading sources in the module. b. Subsections should be about 1–2 paragraphs long. c. Each subsection should have a minimum of 2 sources cited to support the major points. The 2 required sources MUST come from the assigned readings under that week’s module. (This is to ensure that you are integrating the information, rather than summarizing the sources independently.)

3. Conclusion a. Tie together the major themes you introduced in the body of the summary.


Helpful information:

Note that citing and referencing the Chadee chapters each week is NOT like the Kassin et al. textbook. Kassin et al. wrote all of the chapters so the citation and reference never change. However, each chapter in the Chadee text is written by different authors (Chadee is the editor) so you must cite and reference each chapter differently. Example and instructions attached.


2. Do not cite by chapters of book titles; author and years only 3. Do not cite or reference by Chadee – use chapter authors 4. Provide complete reference for Chadee chapters. Here is the format: Rumble, A. (2011). Interdependence in social interaction. In D. Chadee (Ed.), Theories of social psychology (pp. 191-208). Wiley. 5. Remove months from references 6. Only capitalize the first word of article title/subtitle in Laczniak et al. reference


1. Replace “Introduction” heading with title; centered 2. When there are two authors, cite both (Jordan & Zanna, 1999) 3. Note that the Chadee text is an edited book so each chapter is cited and referenced by its author(s). For Module 1, the citation is (Rumble, 2011). Here is the example for chapter 8 (as assigned in Module 1; italicize book title): Rumble, A. (2011). Interdependence in social interaction. In D. Chadee (Ed.), Theories of social psychology (pp. 191-208). Wiley. 4. Center Conclusion heading 5. Use bold font for References heading 6. Only capitalize the first word of article titles/subtitles in references 7. Authors are listed last name, first initial in all references 8. List all authors in the references 9. Only capitalize the first word of book title in reference

2. Do not italicize article titles 3. Only capitalize the first word of chapter, book, and article titles/subtitles 4. Italicize journal titles and volume numbers

Work to weave your sources together rather than summarizing them separately. Choose three topics from the week and cite at least two of the readings when discussing each topic. See rubric for APA edits, noting the corrections for the Chadee chapters.
