This paper is to be treated as an academic paper in which the 400-level course writing mastery will be shown. The writing you do in response to the given topic should be based on a combination of understandings and insights derived from a critical reading of and reflection upon the assigned material (textbook chapter, journal articles, lecture videos, other posted videos), as well as upon your own personal and professional experiences. You will need to use APA format for your papers.
