Self-reflection assignment:
Students are expected to write a single page (single space 12 pt Times New Roman) journal/self-reflection piece (10% of the final grade). The purpose of the essay is to link what you learned in the course to your personal life and thus contribute to a deeper learning experience. Writing is a critical skill for everyone and journal writing is an inspiring and often times therapeutic activity.
Find a key social influence concept from the textbook; a concept that is important for you. Explain the concept and explain why it is important.
Give an example of the concept from your personal social life or from your observations of significant others’ lives. Explain how your example/experience illustrates the concept and why it is an important or a significant experience. The purpose here is to encourage students to think within the real life context and understand social nature of our psychological experiences. Beyond the factual example you give from your life, you could also reflect on what could happen in your example.
Self-reflection journals are due on
November the 8th.
The evaluation criteria will be shared with the class in advance. Students are encouraged to start their assignments early in the term. Late assignments are
NOT
accepted! Please plan your time ahead and use online back-up systems (such as
Dropbox or Google Drive
) to prevent last minute problems.

Self-reflection Assignment
Film assignment: This is an assignment adopted from Leora Dahl’s previous social psychology course outline. Students are expected to watch a movie from the list and write a
5 page (double space 12 pt Times New Roman)
application of a social psychological concept of the textbook (
15% of the final grade
). Similar to previous journal writing assignment, the purpose of this essay is to link what you learned in the course to a movie (list provided) and thus contribute to a deeper learning experience.
• Find and define a social psychological concept from your textbook (not the same concept with self-reflective assignment) and explain why you think it is important.
• Give the contextual example of the concept from the movie and discuss in detail. Explain how the example from movie illustrates the concept and why it is important in the specific context of the movie. Beyond the fictional example you give from the movie, you could also reflect on what else could happen in the movie that’d make the movie, story or scene more or less interesting.

Essays are due on
December the 1st
. The criteria will be shared with the class in advance. Students are encouraged to start their assignments early in the term. Late assignments are NOT accepted! Please plan your time ahead and use online back-up systems (such as
