Expectations From Genders

The foundations of courtship are vast and complicated, regardless of cultural practices and environments. In this assignment, you will focus on Sternberg’s triangular theory of love which depicts the relationships between intimacy, passion, and commitment. You will also explore the impact society has on each of these variables.

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research Sternberg’s theory.

Complete the following:

  • Describe Sternberg’s triangular theory of love.
  • Apply Sternberg’s theory to examine social norms and roles expected of your stated gender. Focus on social roles and norms including, but not limited to, the following areas and origins of adult relationships:
    • Dating practices including social media sites such as Match.com
    • Family planning
    • Daily parenting practices and changing roles related to career(s) and education

Support your assertions using valid research.

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to the formatting of your paper and the citation of sources. Remember to include a cover page and reference page in APA format.

Polling Exercise

Polling Exercise


Conduct a poll of at least five people by asking the following questions. Evaluate each answer and decide whether you would consider it as hedonic or eudaimonic, and record it in the table. Finally, answer the question below the table in 200-350 words.


  • What makes you happy?
  • Would you say you are living “the good life?” Why or why not?
  • If you could make any changes you wished that would make you happier, what would those be?


Hedonic Eudaimonic



Write a summary of your results. What common beliefs about happiness were evident in your results?

Ethics In Friendship

In this module, we learned about the rarity of what Aristotle calls “soul friendship” or what Emerson calls “divine” friendship. Most philosophers concur that cultivating such a friendship requires an openness to it, an awareness that it will not likely occur, and a stringent honesty and affection.

In at least 250 words total, please answer each of the following, drawing upon your reading materials and your personal insight:

  • If “soul friendships” represent our highest attainment of friendship and require great honesty and pure love, what might be our ethical obligation to attempt to nurture such friendships?
  • Analyze, drawing upon examples from your own life, whether such friendships are possible and explain some of the ethical considerations that accompany them.


Evaluation Criteria

Your initial post should be at least 250 words and must substantively integrate the assigned readings from the module with proper APA style formatting.

An Annotated Bibliography which includes an APA formatted

TOPIC MUST BE RELATED TO Personality and Counseling Theories

and there must be 6-8 scholarly reviewed articles!!! Articles cannot be older then 10years.


An Annotated Bibliography which includes an APA formatted listing of articles to be used for the paper with an accompanying brief description of what each covers (to be written in the student’s own words—copying or paraphrasing the article abstract is not permitted) must be submitted by the end of Week 3 of the course.  The annotated bibliography worth 50 possible points and is part of the total Literature Review Paper points possible.  If it is not submitted by the end of Week 3, 50 points will be deducted prior to any other grading of the paper. This assignment submission will be evaluated based on:

  • The degree to which the article summaries are truly integrated and logically related; arbitrary statements of “This is related to that” without supporting evidence of an actual connection will result in a significant point deduction.
  • Evidence of academically mature insight and use critical thinking skills in analyzing and relating the articles to each other and making suggestions for future research directions.
  • Clear and thorough articulation of the paper’s key points.
  • Compliance with APA paper formatting standards.

Minimal to no grammar, spelling or basic writing errors

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word (three to four pages) paper in which you consider social behavior.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word (three to four pages) paper in which you consider social behavior.


Include the following:


·       Explain how our motive to belong influences our group behaviors, both positively and negatively. Consider your Week 2 reading on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

·       Explain how the fundamental attribution error influences our judgments of others. How could becoming more aware of, and correcting this error, change our understanding of others’ behavior?

·       How do assumptions, such as defensive attribution and the just-world hypothesis, influence our sense of control over our lives? How could we correct these but still feel in control?

·       The way we perceive others is quite subjective, and the processes we use to evaluate others are often outside of our awareness. Nonetheless, social interactions exert powerful influences on how we feel and behave. What factors influence our prejudices about people? What factors influence whom we find attractive? How might culture influence perceptions of prejudice and attractiveness?

·       What kinds of things help you see the world in a positive light?


Note: You will be assessed on whether your paper is clear and logically organized; whether the content is comprehensive and relevant; whether the language is appropriate to the audience; whether writing is clear and concise; whether grammar, usage, spelling and punctuation follow standard American English, and whether references are consistent with APA guidelines. Be sure to properly cite the resources you use.


Format your paper consistent with course-level guidelines.

Paulo Freire, ‘Pedagogy of the Oppressed’ (1968)

Paulo Freire, ‘Pedagogy of the Oppressed’ (1968)

Chapter 1.

1. What does Paulo Freire mean when using the following terms: “oppressed,” “oppressors;” “humanization,” “dehumanization,”? (p.43-44).

(Answer the question in your own words. Also find examples in the text).

2. Why does Freire think that the “struggle for humanization [for humanity]” is “possible”? Why is it worth fighting for? And what according to Freire is necessary for “…this struggle to have meaning…”? How might you describe his ethics for society? (p.44).

(Find examples in the text to support your answers).

3. Why does Freire argue that “…almost always, during the initial stage of the struggle, the oppressed, instead of striving for liberation, tend themselves to become oppressors, or “sub-oppressors”? What does he mean? (Also, think about Brazil, and what this might mean in its historical context? Who would the “sub-oppressors” be in Brazil’s history?) (45-46).

(Again, find examples in the text).

4. What does Freire mean by the term, a, ”fear of freedom”? What and who is he referring to? (p46-48). (*also, see the‘footnote’ on page 46).

(Answer the question in your own words, and find examples in the text to support your points).

5. How does Freire define the “pedagogy of the oppressed”? What does he mean by the concept?  And also, what is its central obstacle, or “problem,” moving forward in the struggle for liberation? (48).

(Find examples in the text).

Chapter 2.

6. What does Freire mean by the following statement: “Education is suffering from narration sickness”? How does the statement relate to education, and also to the teacher-student relationship according to Freire? (71).

7. Very importantly, what is the “banking concept of education”? What does Freire mean by this concept? (72-76).

8. And also, against this model of education, what does Freire mean by the terms, “solidarity,” “communication,” and “authentic thinking” on the final page of your reading? According to Freire, how and why are these concepts necessary for a more liberating form of education?

9. Can you think of any connections between Freire’s ideas and the other readings in the course, up until now?

10. And finally, think about the world today. How might Freire’s ideas relate to the ethics of our contemporary society? Who are the oppressors? Who are the oppressed? And also, more specifically, think about his “pedagogy of the oppressed,” in relation to current struggles for liberation and humanization (human and civil rights). These might include, ‘Black Lives Matter;’ ‘The 1619 Project,’ and/or others.

  • In your own words, think critically about the question and the world today.

Moving from Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to Individual and Community Resilience

Before you write your initial posting:

Think carefully about all of the aspects of your teaching/learning conversation.

As you prepare to write:

Think about: the overall experience of your teaching/learning conversation.


  • In your initial Discussion posting, respond to ALL of these guiding questions:
    • What was the experience of sharing your knowledge of ACEs and resilience with another person?
    • What were 4 points of your collective learning (We didn’t know that!) about individual resilience from Hunt’s Ted Talk and theory of change in the context of trauma and community resilience from the video?
