1=unsatisfactory 2=poor 3=fair 4=good 5=very good/excellent

You will find 10 examples of theories, topics we’ve covered in class that are illustrated, appear, are represented in different popular mediums. For example, you might know a song lyric that speaks to Erikson’s understanding of identity and role confusion. You would find the song lyric on the internet and copy it into a word doc. and then write your connecting paragraph between the song and the concept that you are focusing on from class. You can take two examples from a given source. So, you could have two songs, two ads, two TV shows, two commercials, etc., adding up to 10 in all. Again, you would find images of the song lyrics, the TV show, the ad, etc. online and put these in your virtual scrapbook. On the same page as this visual image, you will also write your substantive connecting paragraph per the directions in the assignment description and rubric. In the end, you should have a 10-page doc. (one page per visual example and connecting paragraph). Make sure you use 10 different theories and/or concepts from class. So, for example, don’t have two different entries on Erikson. Each entry should be of a different theory or concept discussed in class. ( Banduara- social learning, self-monitoring, and self-efficacy,) that might help.

Scrapbook contains 10 examples of topics/theories discussed in class

1 2 3 4 5

Each example has a brief narrative (1-2 paragraphs) on its relationship to class (theories are highlighted and a specific, thoughtful, and creative connection is made between the example and the theory). That is, connections are made that demonstrate a substantive and accurate understanding and application of the theory. For example, if you use a picture of ducklings following a mother duck you might address critical periods, imprinting, attachment theory and its relationship to the still-widespread use of human ethology in explaining the bonding process and legal decisions surrounding parenting. You would not merely say: “Ducks followed Lorenz and therefore this ad reminded me of Lifespan or, “There was a baby in this ad so it reminded me of prenatal development.)

Your application of course concepts and theories is in your own words. You have not merely pasted ppt. material into your narrative or given an internet definition of the theory.

At least one example addresses cross-cultural awareness (e.g., in your write-up you denote how this example compares/contrasts two cultures – US culture with another culture, or two non-US cultures, etc.) For example, you may find an example of Couvade and compare and contrast the practice and significance of this in US and in indigenous cultures. Since I’ve given this example, do not use Couvade.)

Examples come from a variety of mediums (e.g., magazine ads, newspaper, poems, comic strips, books) 1 2 3 4 5

There are no more than two examples from any one medium (*You can pull things off the internet as long as the sources are from different genres. For example, you could pull a short story off the internet, a YouTube song, etc.)
