Choose one of the psychology perspectives discussed thus far:
Evolutionary Psychology
Stress & Health Psychology
Learning/Behavioral Psychology
Explain briefly what it is and where it came from. I want to know that YOU understand the idea.
Explain in detail how you understand it. Use several examples (NOT from your textbook) that prove you understand the concept.
THEN: Develop your own theory. Based on that theory or psychological perspective create a theory about something relevant and meaningful to you.
Prove your theory. Back it up with resources and information.
EXAMPLE: Evolutionary Psychology… discussed in the readings was the theory that the recent influx of mass shootings are directly related to evolutionary psychology.
EXAMPLE: Stress Psychology….. discussed in the readings was the theory that the influx of baby boomers having breast cancer can be directly related to stress psychology.
EXAMPLE: Learning Psychology……discussed in the readings was the theory that if you understand classical and operant conditioning you are able to condition significant others and by showing appreciation for what you want and believe in you can create a happier relationship.
Use critical thinking (Chapter one) to express yourself. Think outside the box. A theory is just that, a theory. It does not have to be right or wrong. But you have to prove your point.
If you are not certain about your idea or concept ASK QUESTIONS!
APA ~ Grammar ~ Scholarly Writing will be expected and a part of your grade.
A rubric is provided making it easier to understand how you will be graded This is 10% of your grade… don’t half-ass it.
NOTE: You MUST cite your text AND at least one other source (can be PP or video posted)!
Remember……..if you cite you MUST reference. APA is reference, NOT works cited. Please see HOME page of class to find several links regarding APA.
It goes without saying that the quality of your references and the more “proof” you provide for your paper, the better your grade will be. Additionally, title page, and references do not count as ‘content’. Keep that in mind.
