It is important for you to show in your writings that you understand the meaningof the work of particular course authors and course concepts and that you know how to apply the ideas to issuesin the social world,and not that you simply know what someone said or wrote on a specific topic. The course has several components: MWF Course MeetingsoWe will loosely follow a lecture format. Sessions have a theme and curricular goals. Class time will not be used exclusively in formal exposition of course material by the instructor – the typicallecture. Group work, full class discussion, and media presentations will take place in “lectures.” Students should reflect regularly on the linkages among in-class activities, the learning goals of the class, and the content of readings in the syllabus. Although the framing conversation by the instructor will always make these connections clear, please visit office hours to resolve any confusion.Reading assignmentsResearch tasksMedia (audio/video, tables and charts, still images)Free writesPowerpoint presentationsSupplementary postings from the news media ACES presentationsThese components complement and reinforce one another. They have been chosen to help you understand the content of course ideas, help you apply them to topics in the real world, and to support your work on research papers that will require you to know, understand, and apply concepts at play in the world of social psychologicalresearch and practice. 10
Each class session will address a set of concepts drawn from readings, with some data, references to the real world, or references to course media. To do well in this course you will have to attend lectures, although success in this class requires more effort thanconscientious attedance. The content of lectures will not be limited to facts you need to know for an exam.
