My educational philosophy is one of interaction based on lectures, readings, discussions, activities, videos, demonstrations, internet and web site exploration, and writing. My goal is to involve the class in an exploration of ideas that attempt to explain who we are, how we got here, and how we can change.

PS315 Theories of PersonalityCore Assessment
Research Reaction Paper In order to help you relate theories of personality to current research in the field, students will complete a research reaction paper focusing on the analysis of an empirical research article relevant to the study of personality. The research reaction paper should include a summary and discussion of the research article including the following areas: 1) topic area; 2) hypotheses; 3) method; and 4) major results and findings. Most importantly, reaction papers should include a thoughtful commentary by the student. Specifically, not only should students provide a general summary, but focus on a critique of the research question and design, as well as a discussion of how the research relates to other theories of personality. In addition, students should include a commentary about the relationship of the research findings to their own life and personality development. Students' comments, critique, and discussion should form the majority of the paper.
