When God is your Therapist: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/14/opinion/sunday/luhrmann-when-god-is-your-therapist.html?_r=0
Just a reminder that the remaining writing assignments are due. Since this is the second assignment I will be grading more strictly then the first!
Keep in mind the following:
· Follow all assignment directions
· Make sure that you cite appropriately and use APA FORMAT- lack of citations can lead to issues with plagiarism
· APA format does not have to include all the “sections”- this is only when you are conducting an experiment!
· Absolutely no assignments are due after the due date
Please see me if you have any questions.
