Educational Philosophy: The facilitators educational philosophy is on that believes students capable of learning as they apply themselves to the materials and assignments. Interactiveness is Key between Students and Facilitator throughout the term. Discussions, lectures, powerpoint presentations and other resources will be used to supplement the text. The Facilitator uses the Socratic method of Teaching, which means he will ask questions of the students to encourage critical thinking.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the literature review is for students toresearch a topic relevant to social psychology, formulate a research question,and conduct a literature review to address their target question. A literaturereview is not simply a report or an annotated bibliography; a literature reviewis a summary of the available information on a specific topic organized bycommon themes, trends or findings.
Allinstructors must utilize this basic assignment as one of the assessments withinyour course.

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Examinations, quizzes, papers and discussions will be required and assessed throughout the term.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
The facilitator does NOT accept late work. If there is a bonefide emergency, exceptions can be made with the proper justification and validation of the emergency. Going TDY, on vacation, out of town for the weekend, etc. are NOT legitimate reasons for submittting late work.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Mutual respect between students and between professor and students goes without saying. Use of slang terms such as LOL, LMAO, or other short-cut text abbreviations are NOT to be used in the classroom. If you disagree with your classmates, respectfully disagree, but be prepared to validate your disagreement with data/evidence of your own that you find through research.
The following overview provides some guidelines to assist you in planning your coursework and scheduling the major learning activities in the course:
As you can see, there are two major projects in addition to the regular weekly assignments and the final exam. The first project is a literature review over a specific topic in social psychology, and the second project is an application of social psychological concepts to a movie. For more specific information on the paper requirements, see the "Projects" link found under the Course Home.
