– Do Not describe what happened, you should write your analysis.
– Quotes and paraphrasing must be explicitly cited and not long. Consider using as few as 4 to 5 short quotes and paraphrases per essay, no more.
– This paper should be analytical not summarizing what the writer already said.

Prosocial Behavior

Much of what we tend to focus on when we study social psychology are topics that often have a negative connotation such as conformity, prejudice, aggression or obedience. A huge component of the study of social psychology; however, focuses on prosocial behavior – behaviors that focus on compassion and helping others. For this activity, you will focus on this more uplifting aspect of social psychology. Topics that fall under the area of prosocial behavior include altruism, helping, bystander intervention, empathy, and compassion, among others.

For this exercise, pick one day and seek to structure your thoughts and behaviors entirely around helping others. With each interaction or action you take, pause to think and ask yourself “is there a way I might help another here?” Hold a door for someone, offer your seat, share a smile, give a sincere compliment, show empathy to another, attempt to be more patient or understanding, etc. Your efforts should be in social settings that involve interactions with others (rather than something such as donating to a charity for instance). The goal is to be as thoughtfully prosocial in your interactions throughout the day as possible.

At the beginning of the day, jot down your general mood, feelings, attitude, etc.
Then throughout the day, whenever possible, carry a small notebook with you or make notes in an app on your phone to jot down meaningful encounters or experiences as you attempt to engage in prosocial behaviors.
At the end of the day, again reflect and take notes on how you feel, your general mood, feelings and attitudes, etc.

In a 5-7 slide PowerPoint presentation, not counting title or reference slides:

Summarize your experience. Describe the prosocial behaviors you engaged in, others’ reactions to these behaviors, and your assessment of any changes in mood, attitude, good fortune, or anything else of note you experienced.
Review what you have learned about human behavior in social settings this week in your readings. Connect what you learned or experienced through your day of conscious, prosocial behavior with the terms, concepts, and theories from your research. Integrate at least two academic sources (your assigned readings/resources can comprise one of these sources), citing any references used in APA format.
Describe any new insights you gained through this experience about your interactions with others on a daily basis, including any behaviors you wish to change or to continue.
Use the features of PowerPoint to your advantage to communicate your ideas – include pictures, audio recorded narration, speaker’s notes, video, links, etc. as appropriate to enhance your ideas.
Include an APA formatted title slide and reference slide. APA components such as an abstract, headings, etc. are not required since this is a PowerPoint presentation.
Submit your presentation as an attachment in the Week 7 Assignment Prosocial Behavior link in the Assignments area of the classroom no later than 11:55 pm EST Sunday of Week 7.

Social Work and Human Services

Students will summarize and critique recent research articles on a relatively narrow topic in adult, child or adolescent psychopathology, to produce a paper of 8-10 typed, double spaced pages in 12-point font with 1-inch margins (references can go beyond the page limit.

Provide a maximum 1-page outline describing the topic, disorder, problem, or population you will address, and the key issues you will cover. Identify at least 3 references you intend to use in researching this issue.

Iexpect that students’ individual goals for this project will be diverse. Also, students will target literatures that differ widely in terms of breadth. The first and arguably most important step in this assignment is to build a Literature Review Paper Proposal. Developing this proposal will entail about half of the work for this assignment; you will need to engage in a relatively time-consuming process of selecting and initial topic, investigating the literature on that topic, narrowing and/or expanding your search based on the articles you have found, revising your topic, and finally building a Literature Review. You should review BETWEEN FIVE AND EIGHT articles in depth in your paper. For those of you who would prefer to thoroughly review 5 substantial articles, that approach is acceptable. Others of you may choose to review 7 or 8 articles with less detail, in order to cover more ground in your analysis of the topic. Note thatIt is okay to refer to additional articles (beyond the 5-8 core articles) if needed, such as in the introductory paragraphs of your paper; however, I ask that you review only 5-8 articles in depth for this paper.These are the most important aspects of the assignment.

Continue practicing your research critique skills (hence, only one of your references should be a review article and only one should be a theoretical paper. The remainder should be empirical reports. If your topic area precludes this, please let me know.)Present a topic that is conceptually cohesive (hence, there should be a clearly stated andsupported focus within your paper)Stay within the 10-page limit. Writing/conceptualizing concisely is part of the job in thisassignment. It is harderto write concisely than it is to write more, but you will be endlesslycalled upon in the future to write less, more succinctly. You don’t need to write downeverything you’ve learning about the topic; just capture the most important points. An effective paper will demonstrate the writer’s good judgment in terms of the scope of the topic and the level of detail in information that is presented.

Evidence collection process from the first responder to the investigation team

The Research Paper will comprise 20% of the final grade.


Each student will be required to write an APA 6th ed. style research paper. The paper should be 8-10 pages excluding the title, abstract, and reference page. Students will be required to use a minimum of 5 peer reviewed, scholarly sources.

Please note that Wikipedia, about.com, howstuffworks.com, dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc. are not scholarly resources.

Students are to select a topic of personal interest directly related to the course from any of the lesson topics. Students must receive permission for their research paper topic by emailing their professor for approval. Students are encouraged to be creative in their choice approach.

Student papers are automatically submitted to Turnitin.com.

Political science

This class is about East Asian Thought in Comparative Perspective)
The goal of this course is to provide an analytic introduction to the East Asian political tradition and its lasting legacies for the contemporary world. The rapid economic development of East Asia since 1950 has generated an enormous and often polemical debate concerning East Asia’s future global role. Much of this hinges on the question of globalization, and the extent to which East Asia will or will not become part of a “global culture.” Unfortunately, a good deal of this discussion is logically and empirically flawed, as it assumes East Asia will become more like the West rather than becoming, in a sense, more intensively “East Asia.” Moreover, the globalization argument assumes that all cultures and institutions must conform to a common model, something completely unsupported by any real evidence. Given the decisive and problematic status of the one-world hypothesis, it is necessary to reconsider this whole debate by focusing on those cultural and behavioral similarities and differences that have historically characterized the East Asian and Western traditions. That is the purpose of this course, and the lectures will accordingly focus on the core values and traditions of East Asia’s thought in the comparative perspective.
