Section outline

  • This week we wrap up our first unit of study. But first, a quick lesson in ethics.

    We've spent the last two weeks examining how psychologists conduct research. One more item that's very important is the ethical means under which researchers operate. There are four guidelines set down by the APA that all research psychologists must adhere to. They can be found below.

    Once that is out of the way, you're free to review for the unit test, which I plan to give on Wednesday. I know it's a flex day, but you should be able to complete it in the time allotted. The test is only 35 questions. To assist you in your study, below you may find a study guide for the test. It is guaranteed that reviewing this will enhance your grade. Additionally, you may make a cheat sheet - whatever you can WRITE on both sides of a sheet of paper = to use while taking the test.

    Thursday and Friday of this week will be given over to watching "The Truman Show." The accompanying assignment to the film can be found below. You will have the choice of responding (with a 1 1/2 to 2-page essay) to one of two writing prompts. This will be due next Thursday (9/19).

    Note: The two extra credit opportunities listed last week are not due until the first week of October. If you decide to do the Create an Experiment project, not there links below to download tools that will assist you.
