The Social Construction of a Welfare Mother
Students will read the research article, Social Construction of a Welfare Mother which is posted on Carmen and provide a review of the research. Reviews should be 3-4 pages in length. The paper is expected to be in APA format, and points will be deducted if not done properly. One to two pages should provide a brief summary of the researchers hypotheses, sample, method, and results. Proper in-text citation is needed when referring to ideas other than your own. Students will then discuss how the Double ABCX model of stress could be applied to the research. For example, how does the research focus on the A, B, C, or other components of the model? Are there any components of the model that are not addressed within the paper? How can the Double-ABC-X Model be applied to the results of the study? How might future work be done using the other components of the model? Consult the rubric for additional clarification. Students are required to upload a copy of the paper to the appropriate Carmen dropbox by the time of class on the due date.
Proper APA Formatting: 5 points
This includes but is not limited to the following: Times New Roman, size 12 font, 1 margins, double-spaced, proper in-text citations, reference page, title page, running head, etc. If you take DIRECT quotes from the source, make sure that they are properly cited and placed in quotations. Remember, ANYTHING that includes information that is not your own and original needs to be cited in-text. This allows the reader to know the origin of the information. If this is not done properly, then it could count as plagiarism.

Discussion of the Results5
