French & Raven (1959) 1) French and Raven define power in terms of influence and influence in terms of psychological change. They state that it is necessary to define power with respect to a specified system. They identify 5 sources of social power including: reward, coercive, legitimate, referent, and expert. The power one group/person/norm/role has may be due to dependence. A person could be dependent on another person or group that they see in power. French and Raven state that: ‘in general the degree of dependence of a state of a situation on O, following O’s influence, may be defined as equal to the amount of retrogression following the removal of O. 2) A. Reward power is based on the perceived ability to give positive consequences or remove negative ones. I had reward power over another group when I was an assistant fifth grade teacher. I would reward my students by promising them now homework or a piece of candy for good behavior or correct answers. An example for when a person has had reward power over me was my boss at Sip n Soda.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
