For the past few weeks, you have been reading and talking about the mechanics and manifestations of stress. Now it is time to practice putting a bit of what you have been learning into action.
For this first Learning Activity you will need your book, your workbook (found on the Navigate site if you bought the book/workbook combo), and 2 scholarly sources of information (journals, professionally vetted internet material, or other scholarly publications). I have pasted the requirements found from the syllabus for Learning Activities since this is a formal written assignment.
Requirements for Submission of Assignments that require formal written work:
You will be using the Assignment Tool within each module in Canvas to upload all your written assignments. These assignments include your Learning Activities, Reflections, and some of your PSMJ entries. You are required to use APA style for your formal writing assignments. Omitting or incorrectly formatting APA elements will result in significant point deductions. For each formal writing assignment you will need to include:
• Title page
• Appropriate content formatting for the body of the paper including a Running head on the title page, title header throughout the paper, section headers.
• Correctly formatted in-text citations for all sources, and a reference page.
• Including an Abstract is optional. If you plan to go on to graduate school, I recommend completing an Abstract for the practice.
• Files submitted in MS Word format (doc. or docx. files)
In addition to using APA style for formal writing assignments, you are also to compose your formal writing assignments in a professional writing style and tone. Formal, correct grammar, syntax, spelling, and style are required. Points will be awarded for the correct use of all of these elements and deducted if omitted. American Psychological Association (APA) style is what is used in the Department of Health Studies. All assignments and activities completed for your course should use APA style and format. Please refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th ed., for examples.
What we are doing:
You are going to choose and use three (3) worksheets in your workbook to first, identify some of your personal stressors, and second, evaluate how well you think these worksheets work for you. Notice how this assignment ties into your PSMJ2? Consider how you might use this assignment to raise your personal awareness about the stressor you have picked to focus on for PSMJ2.
Why we are doing this activity:
As you may have read in your textbook, we are not always aware that we are stressed or how that stress is manifesting itself. Part of the purpose of this activity is for you to start learning more about yourself and what you can do to better care for yourself. The second purpose of the activity is for you to start practicing skills to critically assess resources for yourself.
You will be writing a short, formal paper (500 words or more) following the guidelines stated in “How to do well on assignments” and “APA information” for formatting information. In this paper, you can do a question-answer format, but with this option of including the questions, the word count will be increased if you do total words with questions or you can count the words without the listed questions portion.
You still need to follow APA by making sure you cite within the paper the correct source, include a reference page, including a cover page, body format, header, etc. All the tools learned with APA book!
