Click here to have a similar A+ quality paper done for you by one of our writers within the set deadline at a discounted…. 
Draw on at least THREE communication concepts from any other communication courses such as communications in conflict, Group communications to examine your research topic or experiences. In what ways do these concepts help you to make sense of your research topic or experiences? Make sure to cite sources.

Describe the lessons you learned while doing this capstone project as well as how the project was informed by past experiences while completing your Communicating Arts Degree, as well as how that project has helped to further your knowledge of communication.

Conclusion: reflect on the role of communication in making sense of the world as well as how past courses have influenced what you have created for your final project.

Psychology and Education

Paper two: Come up with your OWN research. The second assignment is a research proposal.
The first thing you need to do is to find a question. Questions I’ve asked myself are “what are the benefits of pornography”, “why are people so mean” “what do people really getting out of inflicting pain on others”. There are a million questions out there to be answered. My only limitation is that you stay away from questions like “does listening to music while studying help you study”. The answer is no. It hurts studying a lot, and every student asks this same question. Find a question you want to answer about how people work. How they interact, how they communicate, or how or why they behave in certain ways. Observe the world, ask questions, and then propose a way to answer those questions.
Of course, this IS a developmental class, so in addition to keeping this involved in psychology, I want you to keep the research proposal involved with development of humans. This could be something involving any of the many stages of development – it can be something as simple as testing someone’s theory, such as erikson’s last stage of human development, or it can be something deeper – we spoke of bullying in a discussion section, perhaps you have a theory as to why some people grow into bullies or victims, and you can test out your theory on this.

The first thing you’ll need to do obviously, after you find a good question to answer, is to do some research on it. Internet research is fine. But find a few sources. You might find out that your question has been answered so thoroughly that there is no reason to propose research on it. Do people really need 8 hours of sleep? Even a quick google search will find the answer to that question. So do a little research on it, try to find sources you consider more valuable or credible, and then write an introduction, just like you read in the article, giving a small background on the topic at hand. This will be the first half of your paper. It is called the “literature review” section. As far as finding good material goes, there is something called “google scholar”. Just type scholar into a google search and you’ll find it, and there are tons of articles there. I also have access to most articles, so if you want to read something that you can’t find yourself, just give me a day or two and I’ll come up with it and send it to you.

Now that you’ve picked apart someone else’s research, go ahead and come up with your own. All those problems you saw with their research? Try to make a research plan that doesn’t involve them. How are you going to answer the question? And how are you going to avoid the problems that come up?
For example, many people mentioned that the article they read used a limited sample of people, so it was not generalizable. How will your research get a better sample? Keep in mind, if you wish to work with kids, you’re going to have to figure out how to recruit kids. And get their parent’s permission. If you want to ask a bigger sample, how will you get them to participate?

I’ll give another example. Most studies you found wound up with mostly white people. Many people mention this as a drawback. But are you only interested in studying blacks or Hispanics? Blacks are only 12 percent of the American population, so if you get more than that in your study, are you no longer representative of the population at large? Is it right to artificially select more minorities so that you can represent them, even though at that point you won’t have a random sample anymore and are basically just doing a focus group?
In other times, college freshmen are used simply because the researcher has access to them. You can assume with your research that like other researchers, if you were to go through with it, you’d have access to college freshmen taking intro courses. Any other sample you’re going to have to validate not only WHY you need that population, but how you’re going to get them.

There are plenty of problems to encounter in some research. How are you going to measure something? Let’s say you want to measure how emotionally needy someone is… and you have a theory that emotionally needy people tend to get divorced more often because they’re hard to live with. Interesting idea, but how are you going to measure how “needy” someone is? And then, once you figure that out, how are you going to find people to survey? You need a population of people who are older, so that they’ve had the opportunity to be divorced. What age would be good? How would you find them, how would you entice them to take your survey? This “methods” section, explaining how you’re going to do the research, will be the last half of your paper.

You’ll not have to put in results, because this is a proposal, not a finished project. You can refer to your research as “the proposed research” (instead of the more informal “my plan”, “my idea”, or “what I want to do”). You won’t have to put in math, because that’s an upper level course all on its own

Sonny's blues by James BaldwinPaper instructions:i
Throughout most of James Baldwin's “Sonny's Blues,” the narrator beleives that he and his younger brother are opposites: he is mature, responsible adult whereas Sonny is the rebellious, irresponsible child. His trip to the jazz club to hear Sonny play changes that simplistic view. How does that experience change the narrator's views on what defines his brother, himself, or any of us?

For the purposes of this assignment you need to choose any one Hi-Fi specialist featured in the case (e.g. AVI, Linn, Naim or Meridian) but you need to access further (and more current) information on the company. Note that Apple is not considered a Hi-Fi company and therefore it is not suitable for this assignment.

Plagiarism
Plagiarism is the taking of the work of others and passing it off as if it were one’s own. The university has strict rules about this offence and you should remind yourself of these. However, to avoid any misunderstandings about plagiarism please note the following requirements about referencing and working with others.

Referencing

Your report must:

–           Acknowledge and properly reference all data sources and other written material that you draw upon.

–           Clearly indicate any direct quotes or extracts from such references with the use of quotation marks, italics or similar distinguishing marks.

–           Use an accepted referencing system (e.g. the Harvard system).


Working with others

Your report must be all your own work. It is natural that you may wish to discuss the assignment with others. There is no reason why you should not do this. Indeed it is to be encouraged, as it is likely to improve your learning if you do so. However, what you submit for assessment must be written entirely by you.


DEADLINE: TBA
