Educational Philosophy: I will provide you with the keys of knowledge that open the doors to the field of social psychology. You are responsible to use these keys to unlock the mysteries that will lead you towards a greater understanding of yourself, your world, and the people and events that surround you.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the literature review is for students to research a topic relevant to social psychology, formulate a research question, and conduct a literature review to address their target question. A literature review is not simply a report or an annotated bibliography; a literature review is a summary of the available information on a specific topic organized by common themes, trends or findings.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: You will be able to track your grade throughout the term.
Late Submission of Course Materials: I will not award any credit for work submitted late unless you provide me with official documentation that confirms a personal emergency, an unavoidable conflict, or an extenuating circumstance that was beyond your personal control, thereby preventing you from submitting your required coursework by the established date and time.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: I expect everyone to share the responsibility for our learning process. To accomplish this task, we will honor everyone's right to express their own informed opinions. We will engage in several explorations, discussions, and debates throughout this term, and we will not always embrace the same position on many controversial issues. So, in the final analysis, we will agree to simply disagree, and do so with mutual respect.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.
