I need support with this Psychology question so I can learn better.
Our textbook begins by highlighting the SQ4R Method, one technique behind the psychology of studying. This technique can help you read and learn the material in textbooks more effectively. It also helps you when taking tests! We all learn differently, though. It is very important to know how you learn best. If you use strategies that work best with your learning style, you will decrease the time you spend and increase the results!
What do the results mean? Barbara Soloman, Coordinator of Advising, First Year College, North Carolina State University explains:

APPLYING PSYCHOLOGY TO MY LIFE
This assignment is due by 11:59pm Sunday night, March 1st.Over the past three weeks you have been exposed to many concepts, theories and terms related to psychology. Now is the time to make personal application of some of the terms you have studied. This personal application of concepts learned is one of the things that makes psychology such an interesting area of study. Not all courses of study have such a direct application to our own lives. You will select four (4) of the following terms or concepts. You will read and research at least three scholarly sources and then identify, discuss and place each concept in proper context. After you have identified each concept you will then explain ways each concept can be applied to your own life with examples. I hope you enjoy your research and the personal application.Please select four of the following concepts or theories.
You are required to write at least 750 words. This paper is worth 20% of your grade. Please use the APA format, cite and list at least three (3) sources. You are not required to include an abstract. I have guidelines on using the APA format and citing sources in Student Resources for you. To submit your paper click on the Applying Psychology to My Life Paper link under Week 3. Then click on the View/Complete link at the bottom of the page. Then attach your paper. Follow the directions below for a step-by-step process.Assignment Requirements (Use as a checklist):
What is a parenthetical citation right after the material you cited?It is when you place the source in parenthesis ( ) right after the sentence you cited instead of waiting until the end of the paper. It helps the reader to know exactly what sentences and paragraphs are taken from particular sources. Example: Place the author’s name and the source’s date of publication in parentheses immediately after the end of the cited material.
Citing Sources:Parenthetical (In-Text) CitationsA parenthetical (in-text) citation is when you place the source in parenthesis ( ) right after the sentence you cited instead of waiting until the end of the paper. It helps the reader to know exactly what sentences and paragraphs are taken from particular sources.Place the author’s name and the source’s date of publication in parentheses immediately after the end of the cited material. If it is a direct quote, include the page number as well. For example: “Psychology is defined as the science of behavior and mental processes” (Coon, 2012 p. 12).If you have paraphrased the information then you do not need to include the page number. For example: Psychology is a scientific field that specifically studies both mental processes and the associated behaviors (Coon, 2012).Helpful Tips
