Difference education (theory-of-difference interventions): intervention aimed at underprivileged students to help them overcome psychological obstacles.

The Policy Proposal Paper is an opportunity for you to apply what you have learned this semester in order to develop an intervention on a topic of your choice. You will write a paper that includes a minimum of 5 peer-reviewed references (i.e., from academic journals). Your paper will consist of three major parts:

Background – This is where you will introduce the reader to your topic and provide a literature review that lays out the problem you are addressing. (30 points)
Intervention – This is where you will lay out, step by step, what your intervention will look like, including a description of the methods to be used. (30 points)
Evaluation – This is where you will discuss how you will evaluate your intervention to ensure that it is working. (15 points)
