Core Course and Assignment Objective:

This assignment intends to promote and assess college students’ critical thinking skills, as well as their personal sense of social and civic responsibility, intercultural competence and the ability to engage effectively in regional, national and global communities. In order to achieve this, through this paper, you are to address the following:

  • ➢ Identify a particular psychological or social problem, which appears to be currently commonplace in our society. For instance, you may decide to address depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, creedism, etc. These are only examples, but you may choose from numerous other issues, including more specific psychological disorders. It may be helpful to select subject matter that is specifically addressed within our class textbook, although you are also welcome to report on themes beyond what is included there.
  • ➢ After choosing your particular topic, briefly describe the perceived problem. This should include some of the potential causes or reasons for the perpetuation of this challenge, for individuals, as well as for our broader society.
  • ➢ Consider and describe material and suggestions that you could include, if you were to hypothetically write a formal letter to a societal leader or legislator who may have some influence in remedying or assisting with the particular problem that you have chosen to address.
  • ➢ Consider and describe additional measures or behaviors in which you could personally engage, to help alleviate the selected problem within our society, and potentially for yourself, as an individual.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to earn a good grade on this assignment, as you address the objectives described above, be sure that the data you provide is corroborated by the professional field of psychology and its research. This can be supported by including information addressed within your textbook, as well as within your required, secondary source, which is explained below (see “Requirements and Recommendations”). In other words, YOUR subjective view on these matters is important, but this essay should address MORE than only your opinion.

Requirements and Recommendations:

  • ➢ In addition to the textbook, you are required to use at least one other, reputable, source of information. This can be a separate book, a professional journal or magazine article, a website, etc. If this requirement is not fulfilled, you will automatically be deducted 10 points. If you are not sure if your reference is “reputable,” please email me the name of the source and/or the link, and I will advise you. DO NOT use Wikipedia as your secondary source.
  • ➢ If your writing skills are not good, please use the Dallas College Tutoring Services, which can be accessed through this link
  • ➢ Essays containing plagiarized material will automatically earn a grade of zero. Plagiarism means using someone else’s words, as if they were your own, without them being quoted, cited and included in the references page.
