Perception and Cognitive Schemata

This week for your essay pick one person in your life and share who they are to (are you close to them, just met them, etc.). Think back to one conversation with them and share it briefly (look for nonverbal communication and things they were wearing, how their body language was, etc.).

Then review the Cognitive Schemata diagram in Chapter 3. Share what youd put in the four categories about that person (prototypes, personal construct, stereotype, and script). What helped you to create those perceptions of that person?

The cognitive schemata can help to organize our perceptions but youll personally interpret what they mean. Next in your paper interpret your perceptions. What attributions, influences impacted your perception? Remember to be honest in your papers to gather true insight. Provide detailed analysis incorporation of the readings/textbook material into your paper to show your understanding of the material. If outside sources are used, proper citation of the source should be included.

Your paper should be 500 750 words (roughly 2 3 pages double spaced) double spaced and font Times New Roman size 12.

Part One: Locate and summarize suitable scholarly articles
Using the three journals from the prior activity and your review essay, select one article from each of the journals (a total of three articles). Carefully read the articles, making notes as you do so.

Note the database and search terms you used and provide the citations for 35 articles that you considered, even if you did not use all of them in your final selection. Next, indicate the articles you selected as most appropriate/relevant for further reading.

Identify the main idea of each paragraph, the evidence used to support that idea, and the analysis presented in the paragraph. Craft a short 250500 word summary of each of the articles.

Part Two: Identify and articulate themes and topics
From what you read, what are the dominant themes or ideas? Explain the topic and describe the purpose of the article. Then summarize what the article is about. Examine the intent.

For example, what type of data or information is being used in your field? Also, What aspects of APA tone, format and style are you seeing in your articles? Is it formal or informal? How would you describe the style, voice or audience for the “conversation” between articles?
