Psychology Question

 

Assignment Objective:

The purpose of this assignment is to stimulate self-awareness and intercultural understanding, by exploring the effects of our present pandemic situation, from a psychological perspective. In order to fulfill this objective, students are expected to identify and analyze specific subject matter, individually chosen from the textbook, and describe associations between this material and their own psychological experiences or the current condition of our society, as a whole. For detailed illustrations of this, please refer to the “Examples of Topics to Address” section below.

Course Core Objective:

This assignment intends to promote social responsibility, intercultural competence, knowledge of civic responsibility and the ability to engage effectively in regional, national, and global communities.

Requirements and Recommendations:

In addition to the textbook, students are required to use at least one other, reputable, source of information. This can be a separate book, a professional journal, a website, etc. If this requirement if not fulfilled, you will automatically be deducted 10 points. If you are not sure if your reference is “reputable,” please email me the name of the source or the link and I will advise you. DO NOT use Wikipedia as your source.

If your writing skills are not good, please use the Online Writing Lab (OWL). The instructions to access this resource are posted in eCampus, within the tab titled “OWL.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: Essays containing plagiarized material will automatically earn a grade of zero. Plagiarism means using someone else’s words, as if they were your own, without them being quoted, cited and included in the references page.
