Understanding and applying psychology in one’s everyday life can have numerous benefits. In this assignment, you will write an essay requiring you to employ critical thinking as you apply what you have learned about the science of psychology.
You must start your essay with an introduction.
Then, in your own words, define the research methods that are used to describe behavior. Identify the basic ideas behind early approaches in psychology that correlate to these methods.
Now, pretend you are the researcher. Think of a question that you would like to explore, and describe which method you would embrace to conduct your research. You will then include the following elements:
- identify the research question,
- describe your research experiment, and
- indicate the ethical guidelines that must be followed while conducting your research.
Your essay will be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title page.
