Assess the development of societal standards in relation to social media and how this can alter social norms in everyday life.


The prevalence of social media has had a huge impact on society in the area of how we tend to relate to each other and on what is considered to be normal in general. Taking a look at the ways in which social media changes attitudes and “norms” makes for an interesting study, and one that is applicable to understanding how society is slowly changing over time.

For this assignment, you will first conduct your own research on the effects of social media on societal norms (Part 1), then you will examine what has been found through previous research conducted by others (Part 2).

Part 1:

Compare and contrast the attitudes of two cohorts of people; one that consists of five people that rarely use social media and one cohort of five people that uses social media 2 or more hours a day.

Create a list of five people that you know that use social media at least 2 or more hours per day. This group of people will make up your first cohort. Then create a list of five people that you know that either do not use social media or use it very rarely. Take into account age when creating the cohorts, and try to keep the ages as similar as possible between the cohorts. Keeping a certain level of consistency in the two cohorts will help to negate the potential effects of generational differences. Provide a brief description of each of the ten people you are going to interview divided into their respective cohorts.

In other words, list the five people in the social media at least 2 or more hours a day, and provide a brief description of each along with why you chose them. Then provide a list of the five people that rarely or never use social media, and provide a brief description of each along with why you chose them.

Interview the participants to learn the similarities and differences between the two cohorts as it relates to attitudes, lifestyles, and relationships. Write a two-page paper comparing and contrasting what you learned about the two cohorts. Be sure to relate your findings to cultivation theory and socialization theory in the paper.

Part 2:

Now you will compare your research with research findings through previous research conducted by others. Look up at least 3 articles in the Rasmussen Library that relate to the topic of social media and its impact on society. You are not limited to articles that are strictly written on the specific topic of social media and norms. Articles that are covering social media and society are available from a wide number of angles. After studying these articles, write a two-page paper on what you learned on the topic of social media and its potential impact on societal attitudes, customs, and norms.




Assignment 2: Inclusion versus Segregation


One of the top issues in special education is the ongoing debate of “inclusion versus segregation.” The idea of inclusion in education is that all students, no matter what disability they may have, should learn together in the same environment. Fully inclusive schools do not differentiate between special education courses and general education courses, but rather include students with learning, emotional, behavioral, or physical disabilities in classes with all of the other students.


The idea of segregation in education suggests that there are benefits to providing classes separate from general education classes that meet the needs of students with special needs. For some students, this may be for just one or two subjects, while for other students, this encompasses all of their courses.


In this assignment, you will consider those students who suffer from behavioral disorders or social skill deficits.


Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research observational learning. Then, address the following:

 Based on your learning about observational learning in this module, what are the benefits that these students could gain through their inclusion into a regular classroom? How could the principles of observational learning help to improve the classroom behavior of students with behavioral disorders or social skill deficits? What are some of the classroom disadvantages for employing inclusion for other typically developing students? Do you support the move toward inclusion? Why or why not?


Write a 4–5-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Be sure to include a title page and a reference page..





Pick one of your traits and explain the influences that both nature and nurture have on it. For example, if you have a short temper, explain its origins in your genetics, your culture, and your childhood experiences. 

6-12 sentences   / /  /     1 1/2  – 2   paragraphs

Personality Paper

Assignment 1 –  I Get Better Grades With a Little Help From My Friends 

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

I need 4 different  answers/responses  to the following discussion questions at least 85 word  for each response/asnwer.
