Description

To conclude the course, you have the opportunity to choose a topic of interest to you and analyze it from a social psychological perspective. You will then write a literature review (see Bem, 2016), which is a scholarly paper, written in an objective and academic tone, focused on a particular subject. To do this, you must gather, review, and summarize relevant theory and research.

For example, if you chose to examine a proverb, such as “Opposites attract,” you would first find scholarly articles outlining the major predictors of attraction and testing this notion specifically. Begin your paper with a clear stance on the topic—yes, opposites do attract, or no, they do not—and then present the evidence in an organized fashion to support your thesis.

The topic of your literature review might come from the following List below or you may choose to identify a different area of interest. Scan your textbook for relevant concepts to explore. However, if you choose something other than the options below, you are encouraged to obtain permission from your instructor prior to writing/submitting the paper to ensure the suitability of your topic.

Here are some ideas you might choose to explore:

  • Accuracy of proverbs
    • Example: “Don’t judge a book by its cover” or “Beauty is a good letter of introduction.” In other words, what can one conclude based on appearance alone?
    • Example: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” or “Out of sight, out of mind.” In other words, do long distances or extended amounts of time strengthen relationship ties, or weaken them?
    • Example: “Birds of a feather flock together” or “Opposites attract.” In other words, are people attracted to similar or dissimilar others?
  • Impact of titles/labels
    • Example: How do team mascots (such as the Redskins or Braves) impact Native Americans (self-esteem, stereotype threat, etc.)?
    • Example: How do labels (such as smart/stupid, crazy or criminal, etc.) impact people’s mental processes and behaviors?
  • Altruism
    • Example: Does true altruism exist? What motivates people to help?
  • Explanatory style
    • Example: Do optimists experience better life outcomes than pessimists?
  • Persuasive appeals
    • Example: How do political campaigns utilize various techniques?
  • Self-esteem
    • Example: Is there a dark side? Can one be too confident?
  • School size
    • Example: Do students fare better in big schools or small schools? Why?
  • Reactance
    • Example: What is the theory behind “reverse psychology”?
  • Gender differences
    • Example: in aggression, sex, etc.
  • A form of prejudice
    • Example: fat prejudice, racial prejudice, etc.
  • Psychology and the law
    • Example: jury behavior, etc.
  • Other: If you have something else in mind, contact your instructor as soon as possible to ensure the topic is appropriate and to seek additional direction.

In your paper,

  • Analyze the social psychological literature for evidence that supports your thesis, providing a Synthesis of your findings. Be sure to dispel refuting evidence.
  • Illustrate specific social psychological concepts using real life examples.
  • Examine relevant situational factors.
  • Identify social and cultural forces at work.
  • Indicate potential ethical considerations in research on this topic or application of insight.

The final paper

  • Must be seven double-spaced pages at minimum (not including title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA Style as outlined in the Writing Center’s APA Style resource.
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • For further assistance with the formatting and the title page, refer to
  • Must utilize academic voice.
  • Must include an introduction and conclusion paragraph. Your introduction paragraph needs to end with a clear thesis statement that indicates the purpose of your paper.
  • Must use at least five peer-reviewed scholarly sources in addition to the course text.

➢ In the introductory part, the paper argues that sexism imposes limitation based on sex as
to what men, women, boys, or girls can do and what they cannot do. In this regard, the
purpose of the term sexism was to raise consciousness about the plight of women and
girls related to oppression or discrimination according to the feminism theory. However,
by the early 21st century, sexism has been expanded in its definition to include
transgender people, intersexual people, and boys and men. Thus, sexism is the oppression
or discrimination of any sex.

➢ The main argument on the body is that being part of society, child literature authors were
exposed to the same social-cultural norms as everyone else. Society is segregated
inherently first along gender lines. As argued above, gender creates a social divide that
culminates into the ideology of gender roles. In gender roles, men and women have
designated traditional duties that exacerbate social differences.

➢ In the conclusion part, the paper observes that sexism is a construct of long-standing
stereotypes. Stereotypes have been proved to bear debilitating effects on the positive
growth of society and cause social ills. From an ethical perspective, sexism leads to social
ills such as gender violence
