Outline College Student Development Paper Guidelines
You will be writing a 1000 to 1500 words paper on the effects of COVID on college student development in one of the three domains of development (psychological, social or physiological). Submitting the outline is worth 10 points. To help you prepare your paper, and to help you write a successful paper, we recommend you complete an outline of your paper. While you do not need to (and should probably not) use full sentences, (use note format), the paper outline should be detailed. This will help you get started and be better prepared to write the final version of the paper. Use the following checklist to make sure that you have included all the required paper elements and/or meet all the paper criteria.
