Turn in each 9 Weeks.Find an opinion-based article in a newspaper or magazine that is relevant to psychology in some way. Write an analysis of the article as if you were trying to explain to a friend or family member the following points:
Also answer one of the following two questions:
Note: You must turn in a copy of the article with your paper.
Step 1: Read over the question, underline key words and identify the concept being tested. For example:
1. Sigmund Freud was the founder of which of the following perspectives in psychology?
A. Biological perspective
B. Behavioral perspective
C. Cognitive perspective
D. Psychoanalytic perspective
E. Humanistic perspective
Concept Tested: The concept tested is the major perspectives in psychology.
Step 2: Using your textbook, write down the page number on which the concept can be found and define the concept or explain the main idea.
(p13) Psychoanalysis is a perspective which Freud developed that emphasized the unconscious mind as the source of our thoughts and behaviors.
Step 3: Explain why the answer you gave was incorrect.
I chose B, Behavioral Perspective. While behaviorism was developed around the same time as psychoanalysis, it was developed by John B. Watson who believed the mind was a “black box” and since we could not see inside, we should not study it. Instead we should only study observable behavior.
Step 4: Give the correct answer.
D. Psychoanalytic perspective is the correct answer
You will use your own paper for this. Write your answers in a neat and organized way. You may want to set up columns similar to the ones I have below. Yours will need more space for the definition and explanation sections.
