Articles and Discussion Board

The discussion board is how class participation will be graded and is worth 30-percent of the overall grade. The grade is comprised of your post AND responding to the post of at least two other classmates. This assignment requires that you submit a brief (1-page, word processed) summary of material that you have found related to health psychology. Be sure to include; 1) an overview of the major points discussed in the article/story/program, and 2) your reaction to the ideas presented. You should post your summary on the Discussion Forum under the appropriate week. To do this, click on the communication tab, discussion forum, and then the appropriate week. Be sure to start a new thread with your name attached so that your classmates can make comments under that thread. The purpose of the assignment is to become more aware of different aspects of how health psychology is applied in practice. Information can be found in journal articles, news programs, newspapers, television programs and Internet sites. The idea behind the assignment is to find interesting information that you can share with your classmates. Article summaries are due each Wednesday. Any material received after the due date WILL NOT BE COUNTED.
