While each paper focuses on a specific part of your manuscript, all papers have supporting materials to help you craft your paper. Each paper includes paper instructions (which are long and detailed but worth reading!), a grading rubric, a checklist, and an example paper from a prior semester. If you look over ALL FOUR items, your chances of getting a good grade will improve dramatically!

After some feedback on the direction of study two, it looks like we are going with the idea of including Twitter User Gender as our new independent variable in study two for this methods section. That is, in some conditions participants will see the photo of a female Twitter User (The same “Katie” photos from study one or a new male Twitter User. To avoid potential issues with regard to the user’s gendered name, we will refer to both the female and male Twitter user as “Chris”, a gender-neutral name that will make it easier to write dependent variable questions that refer to the Twitter user. I’ll refer to this independent variable as the Twitter User Gender.
We will continue to focus on the same Filter manipulation from study one for our first independent variable, but we will only keep the “Filtered” versus “Unfiltered” levels of that independent variable (We will drop the “Control” condition. The filtered and unfiltered photo conditions provide a better contrast, so keeping these conditions seems more informative). I’ll call this the Filter condition.
Consider our new independent variable again (Twitter User Gender). Here we will include the photo of a male or a female Twitter user. That is, after completing the informed consent form (an electronic version on canvas), students will read the Twitter page where “Chris” will note that they just completed a workout and are ready for their “close-up”.
1). For the Female condition, participants will see the same photos we used in study one (pictures of “Katie”, though now called “Chris”).
2). For the Male condition, participants will see the new photos of a male “Chris”
This gives us a 2 (Filter Condition: Filtered versus Unfiltered) X 2 (Twitter User Gender: Male versus Female user) factorial design. That is, there will be four conditions:
Condition #1 – Female Photos and Filtered (Both photos are the same)
Condition #2 – Female Photos and Unfiltered (Sarah provides a different second photo)
Condition #3 – Male Photos and Filtered (Both photos are the same)
Condition #4 – Male Photos and Unfiltered (Sarah provides a different second photo)
As you begin writing your study two literature review for Paper III, keep this new “Twitter User Gender” independent variable in mind. You’ll need to find prior research that looks at gender and use that literature to help support or justify your study predictions. Good keywords for PsycInfo might be “gender”, “body image”, “visual feedback”, “stereotyped attitudes”, “photographs”, “body dissatisfaction”, and the like.
For your hypothesis, remember that you will need to focus on both main effects (the effect of each independent variable on its own) and an interaction (the influence of both independent variables interacting together). Each of your scaled dependent variables—like “Chris seems insecure about their appearance” and “Sarah seems supportive of Chris”, both on 1 to 6 agreement scales—will need its own main effect and interaction hypotheses. I’ll give you an example below, but you will need to think about the hypothesis for your second dependent variable yourself.
1). Main Effect, Filter Condition (Filtered versus Unfiltered). DV = “Insecure”
In general, we predicted that if participants saw a Twitter user’s friend post an unfiltered (and less flattering) photo of the user that differed from a filtered photo the user originally posted (i.e. the unfiltered condition), then they would more strongly agree that the original Twitter user seemed insecure about their, at least when compared to participants who saw the friend repost the original filtered photo (i.e. the filtered condition).
(Note #1: This prediction is identical to our study one prediction for the Filter condition. The only thing that differs is the lack of the “control” condition. Also note that this prediction ONLY looks at the independent variable “Filter Condition” and ignores the Twitter user’s gender)
(Note #2: This prediction only looks at “Insecure”, but you’ll also need to look at a second dependent variable (like dissatisfaction, or the supportive nature of the Twitter user’s friend Sarah)
2). Main Effect, Twitter User Gender (Male versus Female). DV = “Insecure”
We also predicted that participants could rate the Twitter user as more insecure in the female photo condition than in the male photo condition

Imagine you are going to give a presentation to class, by preparing a multi-media slideshow. Select a theory or topic (NOT an entire chapter), describe the theory, why you are interested in it, the history, major psychologists and research performed. Include pictures, info-graphics, and/or YouTube videos along with text information explaining the theory. Then relate it to a personal experience/observation, and describe how your knowledge of the theory or topic will help(influence) you in the future. You can use any topic found in our Psychology 2e online textbook https://openstax.org/details/books/psychology-2e
Please use PowerPoint or Google Slides. To use Google Slides, free here in Canvas – click on Google Drive, then select New on the left corner, scroll down, and select Google Slides. It will open a blank slide page. Note: If you included voice, video clips or notes below each slide, please upload as a .ppt or .pptx file, so I will be able to access them. Can upload as a PDF if there are no slide notes, video or audio features.)
When using Google Slides, click File, Download, then choose the first option Microsoft PowerPoint and it will save the file as a .pptx.
Here is a sample outline of slide pages to include:
Intro slide(s):
You name, course name, date, title of your presentation
What topic did you choose and why is it interesting to you?
What do you hope to learn from researching this topic?
What chapter is it from in Psychology 2e?
Main body (multiple slides):
What is the history of this topic?
Who are the key psychologists involved(if any)?
Describe at least 2 research studies have been published on this topic. You might want to use one early (older) article, and one more recent.
How has this topic been used in popular culture (cartoons, TV shows, movies, art, music, etc.)?
If it’s a disorder, what are the symptoms, origins and treatment options?
*Remember to use citations like (Speilman et al. 10.3) to show on each slide where you learned the information. Because this textbook is online, just use the section number instead of a page number, so 10.3 is chapter 10 and section 3.
Summary slide:
Where do you go from here with this new information?
What surprised you about this topic?
How will it help you in the future? Or how can you use it to help others?
Works Cited slide: Use our textbook, and at least one other scholarly source, like a journal article. List both on the Works Cited.
Spielman, Rose M., et al. Psychology. OpenStax, 2020, Openstax.org,
https://openstax.org/books/psychology-2e/pages/1-introduction.
Even though this is a slideshow, you still must use citations throughout your slides (Spielman et al. 10.2) for example, and a Works Cited page listing at least our textbook Psychology 2e, and one other scholarly reference you cited in your paper. Wikipedia and most .com websites are not scholarly. Books and Peer Reviewed Journals are scholarly. You will want to upload your presentation early, wait for the Turn-it-in report to be created, then review to see if you have any plagiarism, or direct quotes that need to be cited correctly or put in your own words. Remember citations are not just for direct quotes, but for anytime you refer to specifics from something you read, especially statistics. Every page should have at least one citation, except for your Summary slide.
P.S. Please review all my comments on your previous assignments. Be sure to click “view Feedback” and “show rubric” to see ALL my notes. Make sure this is your best work before you submit your final copy.
There will be several options, I usually use:
PsycARTICLES (EBSCO): Provides full text, peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific articles from journals published by the American Psychological Association and related imprints. Type in any topic from our text and see what comes up. If you have trouble finding a specific journal article email me or contact the librarians (Links to an external site.), they love to help. Our textbook has a section at the back listing every journal article referenced throughout the textbook. Check it out for ideas.
Please note the topic I chose is chapter 10. It is about emotion and motivation.
I included the link to the book in the instructions.

Articles to Use for Paper I: For your first paper, you MUST cite to three of the following articles. You can cite four of them if you like, but you must find a fifth article to cite using PsycInfo. These are listed in no particular order, but make sure to read the abstracts to see how well they will fit in with your own paper. Some might be more relevant to your study than others.
