Final Proposal Instructions

The proposal for this paper is a brief description of the paper that you will be writing as a final. It is to be 300-600 words and should include three empirical sources. An example of this is posted on Canvas.

Final Paper Instructions

For this paper, you’ll discuss two separate events/pieces of media and relate them to at least two concepts from social psychology. You can use television episodes, current news events, historical events, movies, music, books, or something else. If you’re not sure if it counts, ask me. In your paper, you will describe the event/ piece of media. Then, you’ll write about a concept that relates to it. Define that concept and write about how it relates to the event that you chose. You might show how a character behaves in a way that is an example. Alternatively, you can also discuss how someone behaves in a way that contradicts that concept and may be an example of an exception. You’ll also incorporate three empirical studies into the paper. These papers should relate to the concept that you selected. They may be an example of a study that shows that concept or an application of that concept. This paper will be in APA format. Links on Canvas will give instructions on what that looks like and help formatting.
