I NEED someone who can make a good summary of philosophy

 

 

You have two friends who have been struggling with exams in their classes. They can’t figure out what they are doing wrong, so they approach you for advice. In talking with your friends, you learn: Both of them are studying in one big cram session the evening before the exam.  They’re just not motivated to put in more time.

They primarily study by just reread­ing notes and the chapters. One of your friends is only 17 and she checks her phone about every 2 minutes for text messages or social media updates. Your other friend is returning to college after some time away and is 65 years old.  She finds it easy to recognize some information when asked a fill-in-the-blank question, but it is much harder if she has to define a vocabulary word or answer an essay.  

The good news is that you are enrolled in a psychology class that can help both your friends improve their study habits and results on the exam.  

As you prepare to help your friends, here are some specific topics to address.  From Chapter 1, what part of the brain is responsible for remembering the important information that will be on the exam?  Describe that part of the brain and its purpose.  As covered in Chapter 4, psychologists have determined that age can effect cognitive development and memory. For your friend who is 17, how could you use what you have learned about moral development to explain why she may be checking her phone every 2 minutes for text messages and social media updates.   How could she expand her attention?  For your friend is age 65, and having a hard time with vocabulary, explain what may be happening that prevents her from doing well on this type of activity.  How could she improve?  In chapter 6, we learn about operant conditioning.  Describe operant conditioning in your own words.  Thinking of operant conditioning, how could you help your friend use rewards as motivation to study more often?   Using what we have learned in chapter 7, explain why your memory may not retain all the information learned in the cram session the night before the big exam.  How would cramming effect encoding?  How would cramming effect retrieval?  What is one technique that each friend could use to help improve memory and prepare for the exam?  It’s the night before the big exam.  You check on your friends and your younger friend is not doing well.  It turns out that things have turned out even worse.  Her boyfriend broke up with her, stole money from her bank account, and her grandmother passed away the week before.  You notice on her Facebook page that she posed, “Where can I find some rope?!?”  In chapter 5, you learn about suicide and what to do.  Based on that, what steps can you take to help your friend?  Be sure to include any resources that you could call to get advice.

  

Finally, respond to the following short answer prompt: Imagine you  are a lead social science researcher and are responsible for approving  students’ proposed research studies. Review the three sample proposals  below and provide brief feedback to summarize any ethical concerns you  have related to each of the proposals, based on what you know about  ethical codes and expectations in the social sciences. Proposal 1: Racial Predisposition – The aim of this study is to  examine the direct link between biological race and violent criminal  activity. In this study, I plan to prove the direct and positive  correlation between biological race and incidence of committing violent  crimes. This will then prove that race is the strongest indicator of  tendency toward violent crimes. Proposal 2: Electroshock Therapy – In this study, I will examine the  effect of electroshock therapy on undesirable behavior in human  subjects. This study will administer electrical shocks to human subjects  as a disciplinary measure when undesirable behavior is observed. The  goal of the study is to determine whether the electroshock therapy is a  suitable treatment for resolving disciplinary issues in preteens and  adolescents. If this therapy is found to be effective, it will be  prescribed to resolve disciplinary issues in preteens and adolescents. Proposal 3: Health Problems, Diet, and Socioeconomic Status – This  study aims to examine the relationship between health problems  (diabetes, heart disease, and obesity), diet, and socioeconomic status.  It is proposed that people of lower socioeconomic status are more likely  to encounter these problems. Research will be conducted on human  subjects where data are collected on diet (the types of food consumed  along with money spent on food), and this will be related to the overall  health of individuals in the study. The results and findings of this  research will be published publicly so others can see the risks of  consuming cheap, low-quality food.

Imagine you were to create a survey that examined the frequency of drug use in middle school children. Referring back to the considerations for creating surveys presented in this module and in your textbook, what specific factors would you need to consider when developing this survey? Make sure you address considerations related to age (early adolescence) and nature of the topic (drug use).

Class–

For this research question, one issue to consider here is honesty in responding.  So, a survey might best be complemented by other types of designs in this particular scenario.  However, in the context of the survey itself, there are *many* possible strategies and factors to take into consideration, and I would like folks to focus on how we would design the questionnaire instrument itself–what questions would be included, and how would they be worded?  I found this

resource that folks might want to take a look at as they consider these issues…. Enjoy!
