NOTE: All or nearly all of your research will come from the articles used in this module’s readings. The focus of this assignment is application and critical thinking. Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person.
