Write an 8-10 page interpretive paper on one of the topics below. The essays are meant to be your interpretation of the material we read in our book, and there is no need to consult outside sources. Should you choose to consult outside sources, however, those sources must be accurately cited both in a bibliography and in in-text citations, according to the American Psychological Association’s Manual of Style (APA).
