To analyze information and make logical decisions using critical thinking skills, while evaluating, analyzing and applyingknowledge to a global setting from a cultural context.
Grading: This is a department-wide requirement for all PSY 150 students. Two grades are earned and are weighted differently (see syllabus and rubric); 1.) Research 2.) Collaboration
Project Instructions: For this project students will need to conduct scholarly research on the topic defined below. Students will create a PowerPoint Presentation and then present their project in assigned groups during peer review/discussion. The instructor will assign the groups.
Step 1: Review Your Research Topic
Research Project Topics:
1. Conduct research on a stigmatized group in the United States: Select only one group base on (race, gender, sexuality, religion, etc.). Compare and contrast your selected minority group with the majority group in the U.S. As a minority group; how does society (as a whole) influence their livelihood? What role do stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination play in this group/culture? Compared to the majority group, how are these groups/cultures similar and how are they different? From a social psychology perspective, what impact has the majority had on the minority group/culture? Are relations improving between these groups? According to research, what can society do to improve relations?
NOTE: If you have an idea for a group but are unsure if it will work, please email me first. The group you select will need to fit within the existing framework (see section on “Required Slides” below). If you can answer the provided questions for each slide then you are good to go.
Step 2: Select your Psychological Approach
Review Chapter 1 of your textbook; select which of the 7 contemporary approaches to Psychology you will be using to conduct your research.
