Introduction

This first section of your paper gives a short overview of what your paper will be about. You need to grab your reader’s attention and inform them of all of the topics you will cover. You should include a thesis statement as the last sentence of your introduction paragraph that tells your reader what topics you will talk about in the paper. Your thesis statement should inform the reader that you will be talking about the way that psychology impacts you personally, academically, professionally, and how some aspects of psychology overlap in more than one area. (*Hint – review my post in Module 6 DQ 2 for help with this last part of the paper.)
This first section of your paper should talk about how psychology impacts you personally. How has it helped you to better understand yourself? Your relationships? Your goals? Stress levels? Personality? (Etc.) Remember, you need to use in-text citations to support the topics you are talking about. We talked about these topics and many more during the class. Your textbook and other course materials should be cited throughout this paper.
This section should address how psychology impacts you academically. What have you learned in this class that will help you to be a better student and a better learner? Have you learned anything that will help you to retain more information? Cover these topics with citations here.
For this section, you will talk about how psychology will (or does) impact you professionally. Again, think back to all of the topics we covered. How does your new knowledge help you professionally?

Conclusion

In the conclusion, you should wrap up all of the main points of your paper. You should very briefly review what you covered regarding how each of these areas of your life are impacted by psychology. In addition, this is a great way to discuss the overlaps you noticed. Maybe you noticed that having a better understanding of personality types will help you in all three areas. Maybe you noticed that understanding stress and how to cope better will impact you in all three areas. Maybe you noticed how support from family and friends will keep you motivated academically and professionally. Tie all that in here and close out your paper.
