Reducing Prejudice and Discrimination – Five major approaches to combat prejudice are explored: cooperation and common goals, intergroup contact, cognitive retraining, and cognitive dissonance. D. Overcoming Destructive Obedience – Five areas are discussed that may explain and perhaps reduce destructive obedience: socialization, power of the situation, groupthink, foot- in-the-door, and relaxed moral guard.

  L ecture L ead - I ns 1. Ask students to take out a blank piece of paper and to write a ten minute paper on a very unusual, esoteric topic (e.g., the role of structuralism in modern cognitive neuroscience.) Remind them to use their very best grammar and to be sure to include their name and social security number on their papers. The students will grumble about your sudden shift from your syllabus but most will comply with the assignment. Allow about 5 minutes and note how many students try to complete the assignment and how many simply give up. Stop and ask the students why they complied with an obviously irrational demand. Most will say because you (authority figure) told them to. Use their behavior as a lead-in for your lectures on obedience and Milgram's study. 2. Ask students to discuss crowding and behavior from a personal viewpoint. Students often live in a relatively small amount of square footage per person. Some will have children and spouses, some still live at home or with several roommates, while others will live in the dorms.

    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.
