Week 2 – Assignment: Compare Two Social Psychological Theories of Aggression
The general aggression model is the most widely accepted model of aggression. In order to understand the general aggression model, it is very important to understand the components of the model; the factors (e.g., person, situation, social encounters) that serve as component parts of the whole model.
For this task, you will reflect on what you have learned about the various social psychological theories of aggression this week.
Select three components of the General Aggression Model (e.g., components part of person factors, situation factors, or social encounters), then create a PowerPoint presentation where your goal is to teach how each explains aggression.
1. Use the three components to prepare slides that discuss what you believe best explains why people become aggressive.
2. Prepare slides that discuss at least three assumptions that these components would make about the definition of aggression. Present an argument about whether you find that these assumptions are, in fact, in line with the definition/assumptions that you had of aggression before you started the course?
a. If so, what have you learned new?
b. If not, how has this model helped to enhance your assumptions of aggression? How?
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least two scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.
