Choosing Your Focus
Prior to beginning this assignment, review all the required readings from the first three weeks. During this course, you have been developing your knowledge in the area of learning and cognition and in the final week of this course, you will develop a Final Project based on the topics we will explore throughout the course. This writing assignment supports your success on the final project. Prior to beginning this assignment, review the components of an annotated bibliography (Links to an external site.).
For this this Annotated Bibliography, you will research at least five peer-reviewed articles published within the last ten years to support your analysis of one of the following topics:
- Behavior Analysis (previously known as behaviorism)
- Information processing
The topic you choose should be based on the area in which you would most like to develop your knowledge. Your choice should also consider your current interests in psychology and support your future career or personal goals.
