For this assignment, write a 750-1,000-word commentary that addresses a trend/topic related to ADHD.
This means that your essay should review a single trend related to ADHD. For instance, you could analyze one of the following trends (you are not limited to this list; these are suggestions):
- Increase in ADHD Diagnoses
- Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling
- Impact of New ADHD Treatments
- Hidden Dangers of ADHD Medications
- The Reasoning Behind ADHD Awareness Week
- ADHD and the Zombie Phenomenon
- ADHD Drug Overdoses
This essay is NOT a summary of several different elements of ADHD. Rather, it is an analysis of a single trend related to ADHD, including various elements of that single trend.
Your review should include at least five scholarly sources outside of class texts.
- Label or Identify the Subject: Provide the name for the trend and provide some context or background for the subject.
- Explain the Subject: Find a pattern of meaning in the trend (e.g., speculate as to causes and effects of an event, compare with a similar case, or offer an example).
- Make a Judgment/Offer an Opinion: Evaluate the trend using third person; offer praise or critique the trend, offering evidence to support your claims.
- Include in-text citations and a References page for at least FIVE scholarly sources outside of class texts.
- These sources should be used to support any claims you make.
