Educational strategies for students with ADHD or autism
ARTICLE REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS
During this course, you will complete an Article Review. The content of the article must focus on educational strategies for students with ADHD or autism. Be careful not to focus on other special education disabilities. For the article review, you will select a full-text, scholarly journal article that has been published in the last five years. Your paper should include a title page, one-page summary, one-page reflection, and reference page. The paper should be double-spaced, using headings to organize your summary. You must use third person.
A grading rubric is provided to ensure you follow the expectations.
Your title page should include your name, date, course, and section (centered, double spaced).
You will also include a header with the running head flush left and the page number flush right. It should be an abbreviated title in all caps and should not exceed 50 characters.
Each page, including your title page, should have a header, but only the title page should include the words “Running head” in the header. In Microsoft Word, click Insert and then Header.
Your summary should be on a new page and say “Summary” at the top, center of page 2 in plain text. This page should be between 300–350 words and should include general information about the journal article that you have selected.
Your reflection should be on a new page and say “Reflection” at the top, center of page 2 in plain text. This page should be between 300–350 words and should include a reflection on how you would apply the content of the article in a setting for students with intellectual disabilities.
In-text citations are vital for your paper. You will need to cite any and all information or ideas that are not your own.
“If you directly quote, you will need quotation marks along with the page number at the end of the citation” (Gibson, 2010, p. 123). If you summarize a reference, then you do not need to include the page number at the end of the citation (Gibson & Stevenson, 2010). Both of the previous sentences are examples for you to help you correctly cite information. Be careful not to overuse quotes, as this is a form of plagiarism.
Make sure that your reference page says ‘Reference(s)” in centered, plain text, at the top of your reference page.
The references should be in alphabetical order with hanging indentions. In Microsoft Word, you can highlight your reference, right click, click Paragraph, then in the Indention section of the box that opens, click Special and then select Hanging.
Be sure that your references are APA stylized and include where you obtained your reference from if it was obtained online. An example is below:
