Listening to a podcast related to some aspect of human sexuality
This assignment entails watching a video or listening to a podcast related to some aspect of human sexuality. Suggestions of videos include TED talks or podcasts on NPR, Hidden Brain, or similar. Note that some videos and podcasts are not scholarly (such as random YouTube videos), so please use your academic discretion. I have provided multiple sources in the first section of each module, so you may find ideas there. You may also find resources through streaming systems such as Netflix.
After viewing your video or listening to your podcast, you will write a short two to three page paper, in APA style, critiquing the video/podcast; telling us about what you perceive as strengths and weaknesses, and how the piece resonates with you. You should include a cover page, and a reference page. Please don’t just describe the video/podcast; but instead, tell us your positive and negative perception of the quality of your selection, and whether you believe it is pertinent to the study of human sexuality in psychology. You may also post your actual critique and a link to the video into one of your DB postings if you choose, and feel free to respond to your peers’ work.
Please see the APA Sample Paper to see how to format your short paper. See your APA Publication Manual for formatting your video/podcast reference. You should have an APA formatted cover, and a reference page (no abstract needed). You should include an introductory subheading and a conclusion subheading. No rubric is used for this assignment but you will be graded in three areas in equal amounts (20 pts each): (1) Topic Selection and Pertinence to Course, (2) Organization and Content, and (3) Writing Mechanics including APA style, spelling, grammar, sentence structure, and inclusion of references/citations.
