Description ESSAY This essay is an exercise in Critical thinking and writing. Can you relate what you already know to what you learned and the differences in the wide world in which we live? Remember what Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Your small hamlet is not the be-all and end-all of behavior and thought. You need to compare and contrast different psychological views of the world. Not everyone thinks the same as we do here in North Eastern North Carolina in the United States or in other countries. Show me you are aware there are other thought processes and behaviors out there in the wide world within which we live. The ONLY sources for supporting quotations in this paper must be the textbook or my online lectures. You may use examples from outside the class materials, but support your example from the book or lectures. The culture of any society can change many aspects of the behavior and thoughts of those who live within the society. One example: globally there are two very distinct cultural norms called individualism and collectivism. Our motivation, what we find stressful, thinking, the scripts we learn, the way we perceive our world, the definition of pathology, our personality, the course of development, and therapy depend on the country and culture in which we find ourselves. Throughout this course, you will find references to these globalization differences. Mark them down and remember them. Near the end of the course (the due date is listed in the course menu), you will be required to write an essay on these differences which counts 10% of your grade. The minimum sized essay for this assignment must be 7 paragraphs. Of those 7 paragraphs, no less than 5 of them must contain 5 or more sentences. Anything less than the minimum (5 paragraphs with 5 sentences each) will get a zero! I require at least 7 paragraphs, but only 5 of them are required to have 5 or more sentences. Your essay should be structured as follows: Essay formatting: Header formatting: The top of your paper must include five items as follows: You must put your name on the essay along with your class number and section number or letter and the date. Your college name and a title for your paper. It should look like the following information: Your Name: The date: College Name: College of The Albemarle Class information including the Section of your class (N, 01, W, etc..) TITLE of your paper: It should look something like this: Rodger Rossman April 2, 2020 College of The Albemarle Psy 150 ?? <--- Put in your section number, not two question marks! The differences in behavior and thought around the globe Paragraph Formatting: P#1 - Write an introduction paragraph with 5 or more sentences. In this paragraph, you will tell the reader the five cultural differences you will discuss in the body of your paper. P# 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - Write five (or more) body paragraphs each with 5 or more sentences (see below for more detail). P# 7 - Write a concluding paragraph - if you wrote more than 5 body paragraphs this could be P#8 or P#9 etc... (if you already met the minimum number of 5 sentence paragraphs then this paragraph does not have to have 5 sentences). The body will include the following: #P2. This paragraph will define and describe collectivism and individualism and give at least two examples where people in individual and collective societies differ in their Thoughts or Behaviors. You must support your examples with quotes, citations, and references. Any supporting quotes used must be from our text or the lectures from the class. It cannot be 'my dad said'. You are already familiar with citations and references because you have used them throughout the semester in your discussions. As a weird example: According to Mr. Rossman's lectures "Personal space is the physical space immediately surrounding someone, into which any encroachment feels threatening or uncomfortable for them." (Rossman, 2019, Motivation&Emotion #7). Since collectivist cultures are more about the group, they feel less threatened in the presence of large groups of people and would have smaller personal spaces. Maybe that's why in collectivist countries, like Japan, people can crowd onto trains with everyone pushed up against all the people around them, which is something we do not do in our individualistic society in the United States. #P3, 4, 5, 6. In four or more paragraphs describe, using four (or more) different examples, how culture changes people's thoughts and or behaviors. You MUST use supporting quotes from my lectures or the textbook. Do not use sources other than the textbook or my lectures for your supporting quotes. Compare and contrast differences between the culture of the United States and another country. Or Compare and contrast differences between one culture in the United States with another in the United States. Find four behaviors or thought processes, that are different between two different cultures. Another weird example: Culture influences the definition of a psychopathology. According to Forbes magazine: Women in France are allowed to go topless. There is no French federal law banning such activity, but there is in the United States. Therefore a woman going topless in the United States exhibits a psychopathology. A "Psychopathology is any pattern of emotions, behaviors or thoughts that are inappropriate to the situation and leading to personal distress and/or the inability to achieve important goals" (Rossman, 2019, Psychopathology #1). A woman going topless in America would be jailed which would certainly impair their ability to achieve important goals, but that would not be the case in France. For each quote, you must give a citation to point to where you acquired this information (All supporting quotes must be from our text or the lectures from the class). These paragraphs are not about collectivism and individualism. There are many differences not related to collectivism and individualism. To complete these paragraphs compare and contrast different cultural aspects and include examples from around the world. I have sprinkled this information within the lectures and the textbook discusses many aspects of the differences found based on culture. Here are some links to my online lectures that talk about cultural differences: Although the motivation lectures have nothing specifically pointed out, it mentions differences over and over. The personality chapter also mentions differences among cultures. There are many examples in the textbook and in my online lectures for you to use. For each quote used in a paragraph, there should be another FOUR sentences in that same paragraph that must be in your own words (they can not be inside a quote)!  This is your paper and 80% of the written material in each paragraph should be in your own words (not a quote by someone else). You need one supporting quote for every cultural difference you discuss in your paper. Concluding paragraph: Restate your goal for this paper and summarize the body paragraphs. Other Formatting rules: Essays are made up of at least (minimum of) 5 paragraphs each with at least (minimum of) 5 sentences. If you do not meet the minimum you get NO POINTS! It is hard to get across all the information you should describe in the minimum amount of sentences, so those who strive for the minimum will also usually get points taken off for a lack of content. If you have a quote in a paragraph, you must also have four sentences in your own words. The minimum essay for a grade other than zero in my class is 5 paragraphs with 5 sentences each where 4 of the sentences in each paragraph are in your own words (not in quotes). In-Text Citations and References: You need ONE direct quote for each topic you discuss in your essay - you can have more if you want. The quote you use should come from your textbook or from my online lectures. Your quote should include a Citation as follows: "the quote blah blah blah" {Rossman, 2019, Pathology #1, paragraph 2}  with a reference at the bottom of the paper of {Rossman, 2019, Online lectures,}. Many students lose points because they forget the {Page Number in the citation}! Every direct quote requires a P# in the citation. Any material you use which is a direct quote from the textbook or lectures must have a citation and every citation must be referred to with a reference. When you write about your examples of cultural differences, acknowledge that you got those examples from somewhere. You do not have to use a quote to make your point, but you do need to acknowledge the source of the idea, so each and every one of your borrowed examples (that are not direct quotes) also need a citation {author's name, year of publication} without the page number. When you use a citation to show the source of an idea (which you did not write as a direct quote), you do not need the page number portion of the citation, but you still need to show the source of the information i.e. {article's author, year of publication} or {text's author, year of publication} or {lecture's author, year of publication}. The citation for my lectures (without quoting them) would be "Some idea you got from our class lectures written in your own words" {Rossman, 2019}. References are placed at the end of your paper. They refer back to the article, text, lectures (or web URL) to direct the reader of your paper to the published material that gave you the idea. Each reference line at the end of your paper should have at least one citation (but can have multiple citations) placed within your writing. You can't "refer" back to something that was never cited! A reference that has no citation is a free-floating reference. Remember to place a reference at the end of your paper for every author used. I do not require APA or MLA formatting, The Reference for my lectures would be {Rossman, 2019, online lectures,} where the question marks are the exact lecture from which you quoted.
