Format your paper in the following way:
Introduction (1-2 paragraphs) – this is where you introduce your topic. If you have chosen to write about a mental health diagnosis, this is where you will describe the disorder, its symptoms, and its treatment. If you are writing about a mental health topic, such as how social media affects anxiety in teenagers, for example, you would provide a detailed summary of the topic. It is also appropriate to discuss why this topic is of interest to you in this section.
Summary of source one (1-2 paragraphs) – in this section you will summarize the information from your first article. Your summary should be detailed enough so that the reader has a good basic understanding of the article, even if they have not read it.
Summary of source two (1-2 paragraphs) – in this section you will summarize the information from your second article. Your summary should be detailed enough so that the reader has a good basic understanding of the article, even if they have not read it.
Summary of source three (1-2 paragraphs) – in this section you will summarize the information from your third article. Your summary should be detailed enough so that the reader has a good basic understanding of the article, even if they have not read it.
Synthesis / Discussion of results (2-3 paragraphs) – this is the longest section of the paper. In this section you will be synthesizing or combining the information you have gotten from all three of your sources. This section will likely include your comparing and contrasting the information from your sources. For example, source one might indicate that any amount of social media use contributes to anxiety in teens while source two states limited social media use does not have any impact on anxiety, and source three might report that social media use combined with parental monitoring prevents anxiety. In this example, you would discuss those seemingly different pieces of information.
Summary (1 paragraph) – in this section, you will wrap up your paper.
