The thesis project is a minimum 2500 word essay to be added to the TOTJO library, based on individual exploration of research literature on a topic in psychology of the learner’s choosing. Fundamentally, it is a literature review of no less than 10 peer-reviewed research articles on a specific topic. A completed thesis should include a thorough exploration of the chosen topic and should demonstrate both in-depth understanding of the topic by the author and the author’s critical thinking skills; moreover, the author may wish to draw from theories and writings included in lower level lessons or their own readings, but these do not count towards the 10 required sources, as books and videos are not peer-reviewed research articles.
