PSA for Emerging Adults Instructions

The purpose of this assignment is to write a public service announcement (PSA) to help adults understand emerging adulthood.

Assignment Instructions:

1. Watch three videos found in the Reading & Study for this week, taking notes using the study guides provided.

2. Based on what you learn, write a PSA (public service announcement) to help older adults (parents, employers, pastors, etc.) understand emerging adults. Use these questions to organize your thoughts about emerging adulthood:

· Who are they? Define general characteristics.

· What are they doing? What developmental tasks are generally a part of this life stage (hint: think about Erikson’s theory).

· What are their major concerns?

· Which presentation provides the best advice? Which advice that was given is least helpful? What advice would you give your previous self (if you are past this stage) or your current self (if you are currently in emerging adultlhood)?


3. Your PSA must contain 300 – 500 words.

4. At least one specific idea from each of the video presentations must be included. You may also include information from Scripture, our textbook or other scholarly sources.

5. Identify your sources with an APA formatted citation and reference entry (current edition). Please contact your instructor if you have any questions about this.

6. Submit your work. Please note that your assignment will be reviewed for originality using SafeAssign.

Submit this assignment by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 6.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
