Final Project Guidelines
For your Final Project, you will write a 16–20 page program proposal for a women’s health issue. Your program should be targeted at a particular developmental life stage in girls or women. In this proposal you apply theoretical knowledge explored in the course and develop your skills in curriculum design for Health Psychology related issues.
To begin, pick a developmental life stage and health related issue that interests you. Develop a proposal for a six-week program (that meets once per week) to address the issue for girls or women. Use APA format and scholarly citations and references.
Your program proposal must include the following items:
· Need for the Program. Describe the program, your title for your program, the target population, and the need that the program addresses. Provide statistics, citations, and references supporting the need for the program. (3–4 pages)
· Theoretical rationale. Describe how the program is supported by at least two of the theories examined in this course. (3–4 pages)
· Program curriculum. Develop the curriculum for the program, outlining the key issues that will be addressed, learning objectives, at least three activities to reinforce the issues, and age appropriate resources (such as books or web sites) for your population. (8–10 pages)
· Marketing brochure. Develop a two-page brochure to market your program. (Use a Microsoft Word brochure template to develop your brochure.) (2 pages)
Your Final Project will be graded on a 100-point scale and is worth 32.5% of your final grade.
The Final Project is due by Day 7 of Week 10. Although the Final Project is not due until Week 10, you should become familiar with the project requirements and have them in mind as you proceed through the course. Many of the Discussions and Application Assignments relate to and can be of use to your Final Project. The Final Project will be evaluated according to the Assignment and Final Project Rubric located in the Course Info area. Be sure that the Final Project is written using APA format. Information on scholarly writing may be found in the APA Manual and at the Walden Writing Centerwebsite.
