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.

My goal is to provide students with prompt, clear, and useful feedback to help them critically analyze information and communicate this knowledge in a professional manner. Students will be able to track their grade throughout the term. Each student is responsible for:

Participation in online exploration discussions (including weekly reading assignments)
Core Assessment (literature review paper)
Pairs of article reviews (3 papers covering a total of 6 articles)
Movie application analysis paper
Online pre and post assessment surveys
Final course grades will be determined as follows:
