After reading Issues 1 and 2 in the textbook and viewing the Stanford Prison video, answer the questions below. In Issues 1 and 2, was deception of human participants ethical? Was the Stanford prison experiment ethical? Should social psychologists try to solve social problems? How might self-perception influence your thinking? Be sure to incorporate social theories into your thinking. Explain.
This is what the professor requires for topic
In order to successfuly answer all of the questions posed in Module 3.1, I highly recommend to first take a few minutes to determine what exactly is being asked. Many times, we tend to lose focus because we want to say so much and by the end, we haven’t responded to the question. Second, decide what journal article best addresses the question issue and your position. Third, if possible, try to tie in the issues. Do they have a common thread (they may not). Fourth, provide personal examples to elucidate your position and fifth, end with a solid conclusion reflecting your synthesis on the entire discussion. Be sure to address each question is sufficient detail in order to ensure that the reader understands your point of view.

A reminder to help you keep on track. I do not accept blogs, newspapers, wiki, internet sources, books, encyclopedias, magazines of any kind, etc. in Discussions, Short Papers, Final Papers, etc. You may use the reading material in the Module Resources as a guide to help you to formulate your thoughts, but please do not use those articles as your source of information for your work. They are not peer-reviewed. If you build your discussion on this foundation it will be considered as “not credible”.
Remember that as a general rule, you are only as credible as your sources. Magazines such as USA Today, The NY Times, The Boston Herald, The Economist, Time, etc. are not peer reviewed journals and do not contain peer-reviewedl articles. The authors of these “articles” are politically-not scientifically-driven or grounded. In this course, we look towards a more scientific explanation in order to help us understand the social world around us. Please do not lose sight of this. Incorportating these types of articles into your discussions/papers/projects will only cause you to lose points in many areas.
Peer-reviewed journals usually start with “Journal of ________”. For example, in her discussion, Steffani has correctly referenced the following; one is APA which is acceptable and the other is a peer-revewed journal:
American Psychological Association. 2013. Gun Violence: Prediction, Prevention and Policy.Retrieved from https://www.apa.org/pubs/info/ reports/gun-violence-prevention.aspx
Roberto, A., Meyer, G., Johnson, A., Atkin, C., & Smith, P. 2002. Promoting Gun Trigger-Lock Use. Journal of Applied Communication Research, 30(3), 210.
On the graduate level, you are expected to understand how to research a peer-reviewed journal article in order to support your own work. You must use scholarly resources effectively that reflect the depth and breadth of the topic you are investigating. Scholarly being the key word. It is up to you to decide the type of work you present, but please remember that you are, and will be, graded on a set of pre-defined graduate level criteria.
Please reach out if you need further explanation.
