Disasters and crisis Homework

Final Paper/Project (for both CGPS 790 and 792) Students are to write a 4-5 page paper (plus cover page, abstract and reference page), including at least three peer-reviewed resources (i.e. journal articles, books). For students who are in the school counselor tract, research and critique how schools develop crisis preparedness plans. You may pick one school to look at, or compare two. Example of a plan (or website) could be attached to your paper. For students who are in the community mental health counselor tract, research and critique how agencies/associations (i.e. the American Red Cross, FEMA, Hospice, the United Way, Bereavement Organizations, ASPCA, the Salvation Army) develop their plans to deal with crisis situations. Example of a plan (or website) could be attached to your paper. Make sure to thoroughly read and review the crisis plans before writing your paper (i.e. what is missing; what is good about it; how could it be improved; how comprehensive is it?). For students who are majoring in another 4 discipline, you can chose to evaluate either an existing school crisis plan on file on their website, or you can chose to evaluate an organization s existing crisis plan (see examples above). The paper is due no later than Wednesday, April 24, 2013 by 4:59pm in the drobox.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
