Unit V Essay
Using the textbook and the CSU Online Library, answer the following questions in a two-page essay:
1. John B. Watson is responsible for what we often call “The Behaviorist Manifesto.” Prioritize and defend at least three
lasting principles from the work of John B. Watson.

to these theories, and you need to expound on the process and merits of each.
Your essay should be a minimum of two pages in length; in addition to the two pages of content, include a title page and a
reference page. You are required to use your textbook and at least one other source.
Please consider the following in your essay:
The introduction should engage the reader, clearly present the essay’s thesis, and provide a summary of the main points
that clarify the writer’s point of view.
The organization of the paper should clearly present logically arranged points.
Your writing should be clear and concise with no spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors.
The number of sources should meet or exceed the expressed assignment requirements, and the sources should be
