The Signature Assignment is a 2-3 page writing assignment. It is a critical analysis of the work you have done applying concepts from this semester to a research article. Your paper should be a reflection about the role, interaction, and limitations of science in complex issues, including technology, society and ethics. You will examine the research described in your article and the textbook in order to make a critical comment on scientific and ethical issues related to the research and understanding of your social topic via a psychological lens. What does the research suggest? What are the limitations of applying psychological science? You will be graded based on the rubric posted on Moodle.
You may use the assigned article: Olmsted, N. M., & Terry, C. P. (2014). Who’s texting in class? A look at behavioral and psychological predictors. Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research, 19(4), 183-192 to write a 2-3 page critical analysis. If you choose to select a different article you must run it by me first. IE you could pick a recent scientific article from a reputable journal, newspaper (i.e. Boston Globe, New York Times) or magazine (i.e. Time, Newsweek, Scientific American). The article does not have to be directly related to the topics we are covering in class but does need to have a psychological lens. Pick something that is interesting to you.
This critical analysis is not a summary of the article! You can give a brief summary in the opening paragraph and/or describe pieces of the article throughout your essay, but the bulk of your writing is to be an assessment of the role, interaction, and limitations of science in complex issues, including technology, society and ethics. More specifically, you will examine the research the authors describe in order to make a critical comment on ethical and scientific issues related to the research on texting in class.
Your essay should integrate textbook material with the ideas/research discussed in the article.
For your paper, you need to discuss at least two concepts from the article and relate the concepts to material/research covered in the textbook and lectures (e.g. multitasking). When you integrate material from the textbook you need to cite it correctly. You will be graded based on the rubric posted on Moodle.
The rubric is posted on Moodle shows what will count for the overall grade for the assignment. As you research and write your critical analysis, consider the following questions:
What are the main points of the article?
Do you agree with the main points of the article? Why/why not?
How do you integrate concepts from the textbook and lectures with concepts/findings from the article?
Do you think texting in the classroom helps or hinder your learning? WHY?
What other suggestions might you recommend to decrease the distraction of mobile devices?
What conclusions did the author draw? What conclusions do you draw?
How might you relate the research findings from the article to your own experiences?
THE ARTICLE is long and will take a while to read. You read it in groups, you can do it at ACE. You can do it with your professor but the final product neds to be in your own words. Don’t underestimate how hard this will be. I can be flexible with the due date if you need extra help.
