Part 1: Summary
This week, because you only have one reading assignment, the summary section of your paper should just focus on the book Obedience to Authority. Make sure to summarize all major sections of the book, so your instructor knows you read the entire thing. Your total summary should be at least 1000 words long.
Part 2: Analysis
The end of your paper should be an analysis of the research discussed in Obedience to Authority. This section of the paper should be at least 300 words long, total. Discuss:
Why you think these particular studies or Milgram were so important to the field at the time they were written;
Whether and how you think these ideas or Milgram himself are still influencing the field today; and
If you have any remaining questions about anything you read this week.
This section of the paper involves your personal opinion and analysis, but it’s not about whether you “like” the person, theory, or article. Instead, this section is your analysis about the importance of each article or psychologist highlighted this week.
All assignments should be in 12-point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced and with 1-inch margins on all sides of the paper. You do not need to put in-text citations within your paper unless you are using a direct quotation; the header in each section tells the instructor what your reference is. You also do not need to include a references section for this paper.
This paper is worth 50 points each week. Points are awarded for quality of writing (including grammar, spelling, punctuation, eloquence, etc.), following instructions, thoroughness of summaries, and critical thinking in the analysis section. If points are taken off for any reason, your instructor will explain why the first time an error occurs so that you can learn from your mistakes. If the same errors continue in later papers, additional points may be removed because you have failed to consider feedback from the instructo
