Unit 1: Topic Identification

King (2023) explained there are four key attitudes of scientific research including critical thinking, skepticism, objectivity, and curiosity. This first assignment will focus on the last attitude of curiosity. What are you curious about related to human behavior? Have you ever wondered, “Why did they do that?” when looking at someone else’s behavior. The first step in writing is to choose a topic that interests you.

Assignment Instructions:

For the first assignment, you will need to spend some time looking through the textbook, The Science of Psychology: An Appreciative View (King, 2023). You may want to start with the chapter titles and then look within a chapter that seems interesting. Browse the chapter for specific topics, concepts, theories, ideas, etc, that seem to spark your interest. Make a list of these topics as you look through the text.

From this list, identify three (3) that you might want to explore further. Is it something you want to learn more about? Do you have personal experience with that topic? Is it something you have never heard of but at first glance are curious about?

Student Response:

  1. List 3 topics (concepts, research findings, theories, ideas, etc.) from the text that sound interesting to you. Write the page number and write the definition from the textbook.
  2. Topic 1:
    1. Page number:
    2. Definition:
  3. Topic 2:
    1. Page number:
    2. Definition:
  4. Topic 3:
    1. Page number:
    2. Definition:

Once completed, you will submit your assignment for grading.
