Psychology in Everyday Life (w/out Access Code) Edition: 3rd Author: Myers

Students are expected to use proper writing style (full sentences with punctuation, etc.). Consider your posts to be GRADED on quality, just as an essay on an exam would be.

 

Three graded parts for each student per forum (minimum of 3 postings per forum per student):

 

EACH STUDENT WILL BE REQUIRED TO START A THREAD TO BEGIN. Write all of your answers in 1 thread if possible. I recommend you write your answers in a word document and copy and paste it to your thread. Do not attach it to the thread.

 

3 ORIGINAL DQ ANSWERS  – 3 points each, total of 90% of forum grade

 

I will post multiple DQs in each forum. Choose 3 DQs to answer IN FULL. CLEARLY INDICATE WHICH DQs YOU ARE ANSWERING. FAILING TO DO SO MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO GRADE, AND MAY RESULT IN 0 POINTS.

 

8-10 sentences as a minimum is expected per DQ answer (just a rough idea), quality content is more important than quantity

 

Fully respond to all parts of the DQ

 

Use material from the book to support your response and to demonstrate your understanding of the material (in your own words)

 

The quality and content of your answer is graded (treat these posts as if they’re an essay in an exam). Your answers should always demonstrate your understanding of the concepts

 

Examples can be used to illustrate your point (disguise identities of real people)

 

DO NOT use material from websites to support your answer. Use only your book the material I post on WebStudy, or peer-reviewed journal articles.

 

VIDEO RESPONSE – 1 point total

 

Watch all of the posted videos for each module. Comment on 2-3 videos regarding your reactions, your experiences (if applicable), and how the videos relate to the book material. Demonstrate your understanding of the concepts.

 

Write in the same thread as your DQ answers. (generally, each student will have 1 thread in each forum containing all 4 of their posts, 3 DQ answers and video comments)

 

 

 

 

1.       David’s history teacher asked him why so many German people complied with Hitler’s orders to kill millions of innocent Jews. David suggested that the atrocities were committed because the Germans had become unusually cruel, devilish people with abnormal and twisted personalities. Use your knowledge of the fundamental attribution error and Milgram’s research on obedience to highlight the weaknesses of David’s explanation.

 

2.       Latitia, a 19-year-old student, reported: “Although I was not at all sure that I really loved my boyfriend, he coaxed me into sleeping with him. After that, I convinced myself that I really did love him.” Use your understanding of cognitive dissonance theory to explain why Latitia developed such positive feelings for her boyfriend. What could Latitia do in the future to ensure that her sexual behaviors are guided by her own true attitudes and desires?

 

3.       While walking through a busy city park, Mr. Cruz experiences sharp chest pains. He thinks he is having a heart attack. Describe several things (based on social psychological principles) Mr. Cruz should do to increase the chances that someone will come to his aid. Explain the rationale for your advice in light of research on altruism and the decision-making process underlying bystander intervention.
