Introduction to Psychological Science (PSY 2012) Writing Assignment #2 DUE DATE: Friday, November 6th at 11:59pm. NOTE: It is your responsibility to assure that your writing assignment is uploaded successfully, in the correct format (Word document), and is accessible to us. Any corrupted or unreadable files will be counted as a zero. Do not wait until the last minute to submit it. Late writing assignments will not be accepted more than 3 days late OVERVIEW Virtually all human outcomes, abilities, and behaviors reflect a complex interaction of nature (biological factors) and nurture (social-environmental factors) For example, many psychological processes that were once assumed to be “basic” and uniform across all humans were later found to differ across cultures, suggesting that the unique environments in which people are raised can shape the emergence of basic biological processes. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Summarize and interpret a peer-reviewed article that describes a cross-cultural difference in some psychological process. You may choose from one of the articles provided below or find an article on your own. If you have taken this class in the past, you must choose an article that you have not written about previously. For your convenience, we provide several articles that you may use (see below). However, you are welcome to find an article on your own if you prefer. You might find the EBSCO PsycInfo database useful if you choose to locate your own article. If you need assistance using PsycInfo, please contact your TA and/or consult with a Reference Librarian at the USF Library ( RECOMMENDED ARTICLES Becker, J. C., Butz, D. A., Sibley, C. G., Barlow, F.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS Define and summarize the specific psychological process, behavior, or phenomenon that is investigated in your article. Provide enough detail so that a naïve reader could fully understand the topic of the article. Identify the features of the groups (cultures) that are being compared in the study. Are these people from different countries? If so, what countries? Are they groups within the same country who are raised within separate subcultures or communities? Describe the groups in enough detail so that it is clear where they were recruited and how they differ from each other. Describe the findings of the article. How do people from these different groups or cultures respond or behave differently? Explain the findings. Explain why people from these different groups or cultures are theorized to differ in their behavior, perceptual processes, or other psychological phenomenon. Describe the unique life experiences, backgrounds, or prior learning that presumably accounts for the observed findings. FORMATTING AND GUIDELINES The final paper should be: 3-4 pages long Double-spaced Size 12 Times New Roman font 1” margins You are NOT permitted to use any quotes. Every word you write must be your own. You will lose points if you include any quotes. Copying/pasting without quotes is plagiarism! Do not steal words or ideas from other people. If you mention an idea that (a) you did not create yourself, (b) is not common sense, or (c) originated from another study or author, then you need to cite it. Additional help with APA formatting: WRITING TIPS Structure your paper to provide a logical flow. Make sure your writing is clear. Clearly identify your main arguments Each paragraph should have one clear main point. Provide evidence for your claims. Provide examples from the article—written in your own words—to support your arguments. Order your paragraphs in a logical way. Use transitions as needed. Use your own words Don’t plagiarize (now or ever!). Every word you write must be your own. Do not include any quotes in your paper from the article, your textbook, or any other source! Inclusion of quotes will result in the immediate deduction of points from your paper. Always cite where you obtained your evidence. Do not assume facts or state opinions without citing relevant support. Plagiarism is considered Academic Misconduct and will result in a failing grade. If you having trouble writing in general, consider visiting the Writing Center located in LIB 206, Tutoring and Learning Services (stop in or call 813-974-2713 for an appointment). When setting up an appointment, mention that you need assistance with a paper for a psychology course, so that they can schedule you with someone who has expertise in this subject matter and writing style.
