After reading each of your group members’ stories, write a brief review for each of your group member’s stories.
Each review you write should include:
1) What you liked about story
2) At least 1 specific suggestion to help author improve the story. Use rubric below as guide.

Download the Story Rubric Worksheet for Peer Assessment. After reading the author’s draft of the story, use the worksheet to jot down comments. Consider the questions on the rubric in your review. What aspects of the story are already well-written? What aspects might need revision or additional explanation?

total 3 stories to be reviewed and given comments
Each comment must contain 1) and 2) stated above
Use the Rubric to expand the comment, but don’t have to answer all the questions

Read the PDF file, Reviving Ophelia, and answer the questions related to the reading (Attached word document). 3 pages. Size 12 font.

Label the questions clearly in your answer file.

No Point Form. Use APA format for citations.

Remember to use definitions and examples to help explain your answers!

The questions are related to the reading, you do not need to use any other material to answer them other than the reading, Reviving Ophelia. 

No bibliography. If you use direct quotes from the reading APA formatting is required but you do not have to use direct quotes, paraphrasing is fine.

Now that you have practiced writing questions at various levels of rigor, create a blueprint (table) of how you will construct your summative test for your unit. Refer back to your reading from Week 1. You must have three levels of rigor. How many questions will you have at each level for your standard? This should be a good representation of each level. Level 1 questions should NOT be the majority of your test. Remember, you are not yet creating your questions. You are developing a plan as to how many questions you will have at each depth of knowledge. Your test should contain a minimum of 25 questions and should focus on higher-level questions. I will upload the blueprint that the professor wants us to go by. I also will upload the the syllabus that contains the rubric for this assignment on pg. 23.

The rubric for this assignment is located in the syllabus on page 23.

Test should consist of Reproduction and Heredity located on Page 34 and 35 of the 2018 ms_ccrs document.

I also uploaded the test blue print.

You may also let me know of what additional information is needed.

1.    Describe the difference between an independent and dependent variable.
2.    Locate a QUANTITATIVE peer-reviewed journal article in your field and answer the following questions.
    What are the research questions?
    What are the independent variables?
    What are the dependent variables?
    How did the authors measure the dependent variables?
3.    Identify possible variables for your own study.
1.    For quantitative studies,
1.    What are the independent variables?
2.    What are the dependent variables?
3.    What are some ways you could measure the dependent variables?
2.    For qualitative studies,
1.    What is the variable of interest/phenomenon?
2.    What are some ways you plan to collect data to measure the variable of interest/phenomenon?

I mostly stress over assignments piling up or or class

Instructions: Pick anything that is causing you stress, and then (1) uncover the underlying reason you feel it’s a threat (primary appraisal) and why you feel you lack coping ability (secondary appraisal). Explain in a concise short-to-medium size paragraph your Primary Appraisal, and your Secondary Appraisal. You must articulate the underlying reason why you feel its a “threat” and why you feel you “lack coping ability”. Then, (2) try creating new appraisals to resolve the stress. Perhaps uncovering the heart of why you feel stress can lead you to new ways of dealing with the stress in your life.

– Create your own post in which you describe the primary and secondary appraisal, and then new ways of thinking about your stress. The goal is to explore and uncover what has always been there (appraisals) even though you may not have been aware of them.

Practicing the Assignment This Week

We are going to use this important stress model to help you understand your own stress.

Why do you feel stress? If we can uncover or unlock that answer, you can then directly address the stress and remove it. As a reminder from the first part of this page, stress is slowly killing you (!) so it is critically important to take an active role in uncovering and dealing with your stress.

Just as the first part of the course was uncovering how the Situation influences us, now in the second part we are uncovering how Appraisal influences us. More specifically for this assignment, the influence of primary and secondary appraisal: the appraisal of threat, appraisal of coping ability.

The purpose of the assignment this week is to help you uncover this information.

For example, what is causing you stress right now? And, what is your Primary Appraisal / Secondary Appraisal of that situation?

(I mostly feel stressed over school or assignment piling up)
Create your own post in which you describe the primary and secondary appraisal, and then new ways of thinking about your stress. The goal is to explore and uncover what has always been there (appraisals) even though you may not have been aware of them.

Current Trends in Human Sexuality
This assignment has two parts, a paper submission and a class presentation.  You will be assigned to a group to work on this project.  The purpose of this activity is to help you to develop your research skills, public speaking, leadership, and critical thinking skills.  Your group will select a current issue or trend on any human sexuality topic and prepare a paper and a one-page summary on the topic.  The topic should have some relevance to college students. You can select any topic, but I must approve the topic.  Please submit your topic ideas by September 23, 2020. 

Paper Submission:
You will submit a paper that briefly describes the topic, status of the situation, if relevant, and three to five points that logically support your argument.  Your argument should be augmented with examples if available, and should have factual evidence.  The paper should be typed, double-spaced and no more than 1-inch margins.  Use 12 point font.  The papers should follow APA guidelines for citations and references.
Your paper should include:

a) Introduction including purpose of the paper, why the topic has been selected and its relevance to college age students;
b) At least five main points related to the topic including supporting evidence on those points;
c) Analysis and evaluation of the points and how this relates to human sexuality, why it is trending or an issue, who is impacted by this etc.
d) Conclusions and recommendations for further study and thinking about this topic. 

Presentation:
The presentation will actually be a one-page summary that will be shared with the class.  The class will provide feedback on your summary document and that feedback will be incorporated into your overall grade. 

You decide how to allocate responsibility among your teammates for each part of the project.  Each person, however, needs to contribute to the final product.  Your grade will be based on the content of the effort.  You will also be graded on the organization of your paper and the creativity of the presentation.  You will be asked to rate your peers in terms of their participation on the team.  In addition, your classmates will also rate you on the overall presentation. 

Grade Allocation:
    Paper:        75
    Presentation:     25

Overview

For this assignment, you will develop an annotated bibliography that is focused on a topic or concept we cover in the course. This assignment is important for several reasons. First, this work is excellent preparation for a research project. Second, your work could be valuable to others who are interested in the same topic. Finally, your learning is deeper when you explore topics that you find interesting. Your task is to select a course concept that you find interesting and then find and describe relevant academic articles related to the concept. What you are creating is an annotated bibliography that contains the essential knowledge on a particular topic.

Objectives: Students will be able to:

Demonstrate knowledge of the concepts and norms in educational psychology. (SLO 1) Key Points: Effecting Social Change and Diversity
