There is 1 essay question to complete within this assessment For this essay question you must write 750 words (800 maximum) ) You must write in your own words (paraphrase everything you cite) The format of this whole assessment must be APA 7th Edition One theory should be applied to the question which is the social identity theory of leadership by Haslam and Platow. The theory will need to be appropriately applied and explained to ensure it is a convincing application. So you MUST demonstrate Knowledge (explain the theory), application of the theory (apply it to the news article and give examples) and evaluation (evaluate the theory and your application) Look at the learning outcome for the critical evaluation section, please ensure to relate the critiques back to the application youve done of the theory to the newspaper article.
So you must say how well does the theory that you applied to the newspaper article actually explain whats going on in the newspaper article. My lecturer told me that the better answers will relate the critique back to the application of the newspaper article and thats one of the things theyre looking for, for higher marks. The aim of this assessment is to assess the understanding of social psychological theories and how they apply to real-world phenomena… The question includes a short newspaper article about a recent event in the form of a word document. You MUST explain this event (news article) using a social psychological theory.
In your answer you MUST identify a relevant theory and concept and provide evidence, and demonstrate critical evaluation. P.S. The newspaper article will be provided to you in the form of word document in the materials/files section named as 6) EXAM QUESTION AND IT’S NEWS ARTICLE which you MUST read before beginning the question. The newspaper article will be about Leadership, about Jacinda Ardern. 1. For the article which is about the 7 Defining Characteristics Of Jacinda Arderns Leadership Style, use The social identity approach to leadership (Haslam, Reicher & Platow, 2011) Theory for this question and news article. OBLIGATORY POINTS TO INCLUDE WITHIN BOTH OF THE TWO ASSESSMENT QUESTIONS: You will need to start by explaining a theory e.g. The social identity approach to leadership (Haslam, Reicher & Platow, 2011) Theory and then you MUST apply that theory to the newspaper article; When you apply the theory you MUST give examples from the newspaper article to support your application of the theory; You MUST also use other research to support your application of the theory e.g. previous research that has applied the theory in similar or different contexts AND; The final part of your answer should be critical evaluation of the theory and how well it explains your application to the news article (so both positive and negative evaluation) In a nutshell, start by explaining the theory e.g.
The social identity approach to leadership (Haslam, Reicher & Platow, 2011) Theory and then you MUST apply that theory to the newspaper article; When you apply the theory you MUST give examples from the newspaper article to support your application of the theory; then You MUST also use other research to support your application of the theory e.g. previous research that has applied the theory in similar or different contexts AND; The final part of your answer should be critical evaluation of the theory and how well it explains your application to the news article (the evaluation of the theories MUST be both positive and negative). Within the question, You MUST demonstrate knowledge and appraise major concepts, theoretical perspectives, and empirical findings in social psychology. So you MUST include an excellent demonstration of concepts and theories in Social Psychology within the essay question and you MUST demonstrate an excellent understanding of the concepts and theories as well as appraising the concepts and theories through the utilisation of several sources and the use of material which must be accurate 2. You MUST demonstrate an understanding and knowledge of the application of social psychological theory and research to real world events. So you MUST link real world events to the theory and how those real world events link in well to the theory and explain the real world events using the applicable theory.
(I HAVE ALREADY PROVIDED YOU WITH THE REAL WORLD EVENTS (which is newspaper article) AS 2 WORD DOCUMENTS WHICH YOU MUST USE TO LINK THE THEORIES WITH AND TO EXPLAIN THE NEWS ARTICLES USING THE RELEVANT THEORIES). So you MUST demonstrate an excellent understanding of the application of social psychological theory and research to real world events (which is the newspaper articles in a word document form) and you MUST apply the theory very clearly and you MUST apply the theory very clearly and confidently answer as with explanation with supporting evidence. Finally, you MUST apply critical thinking to evaluate the arguments and empirical findings that you make. So you MUST demonstrate an excellent application of critical thinking to evaluate arguments and empirical findings and you MUST demonstrate an excellent critical evaluation which clearly relates to the application described and does not rely on generic evaluation points and you MUST also demonstrate clear evidence of wider reading (that has been utilized well) within your evaluation points
