TIMEBIND BOOK REACTION PAPER GUIDELINES
PS 373: Contemporary Work-Life Challenges
Start your paper with a creative title. Your paper should NOT be a summary of the book. Focus on
ANALYTICAL writing (injecting and justifying insights and connections to ideas & principles), not descriptive
details of the book. Your paper must be typed doubles spaced (no cover page, but APA style in all other
aspects), and not exceed four pages (this does not include the optional Reference page if sources are cited). All
papers must be submitted via CANVAS. Be sure to explicitly use the subheadings below (Review &
Analysis) to divide your paper into two sections.
I. REVIEW – no more than 2 pages
Again, do NOT summarize the book. To help you think CRITICALLY about your review consider
that this section should address the following question sections:
A) EVALUATION: What are the main objectives of the author, and how successfully does she achieve
them? In looking at the book overall, what are the book’s strengths and weaknesses? What
features/arguments of the book did you find most interesting or compelling?
B) CONTEMPORARY TRENDS: The book is a classic case study in organizational psychology, and
has not been replicated in the 20 years since. Data & research suggests the main issues & trends
captured by the subheading still exist. Try to identify some specific factors that may have changed the
nature of this work-family dynamic. Be sure to discuss the IMPLICATIONS OF THESE FACTORS.
II. ANALYSIS / Critical Thinking delving deeper & beyond the text – no more than 2 pages
You can approach this in any analytical way you’d like. To help you with structure, as an OPTION feel free to use SOME (I don’t recommend taking on more than three) of the questions below:
C) Did the book make any personal connections? Are there personal ways you can relate to the book?
Do the people or situations showcased remind you of people you know?
D) Did the book impact on your reflections within the integrative life plan thus far? Specifically, does
it change any of the views or insights captured in any of the ILP exercises thus far?
E) How does/can the book help you to prepare for future career or personal goals? Any particular
insights to work/life balance captured in a unique or powerful way?
F) Did the book spark any new ideas/insights by you, the reader? In other words, did you think of any
specific changes (by government, schools, communities, workplaces and individuals [you need not
cover all constituencies listed]) you feel will need to be made to address the trends identified in the
G) What connections do you see between this work and any of the other course material we have done
thus far (i.e., readings, videos, Round Tables, CIPs, ILPs, etc.): or any lessons / insights you gained
from other courses or life situations?
