    2. Describe the history of well-known crime and deviance events in terms of social psychological theories and principles.
  5. Be sensitive to the importance of understanding the role of diversity factors in order to understand various social psychological theories and principles.

ASSESSMENT

Attending Students

Students attending lectures will be involved in class activities and will be required to produce position papers on specific relevant topics (40%), participate in discussion (45%), and final project (15%).

 

  1. Position papers. There will be five position papers to produce during this course, each related to a major issue presented during lecture. After the description of a major topic will be completed, a couple of scientific papers will be assigned to students who will be required to produce a brief position paper to be presented to the class by the following week. Each position paper is designed so that students can synthesize and critically assess the scientific article on relevant topics presented during lectures. Students will be invited to in case incorporate materials from other sources and discussion with colleagues and teacher. If materials from other sources are used, then bibliographic references for the source have to be provided. Each position paper is designed to test students’ recall and knowledge of concepts presented during lectures as well as to assess their ability to apply psychosocial constructs.
  2. Discussion. Each student is expected to participate in discussion within classes. After lectures, questions will be posed and students will be invited to analyze them with the help of the teacher.
  3. Final Project. At the end of the entire course, students will be involved in a group class activity. With the help of the teacher who will provide purposive materials, students will be required to elaborate on an assignment related to the topics illustrated and addressed during previous lectures.

Each position paper is designed to test students’ recall and knowledge of concepts presented during lectures as well as to assess their ability to apply psychosocial constructs.
  2. Discussion. Each student is expected to participate in discussion within classes. After lectures, questions will be posed and students will be invited to analyze them with the help of the teacher.
  3. Final Project. At the end of the entire course, students will be involved in a group class activity. With the help of the teacher who will provide purposive materials, students will be required to elaborate on an assignment related to the topics illustrated and addressed during previous lectures.
