I’m studying for my Psychology class and need an explanation.
The purpose of this discussion is for you to demonstrate your understanding of the material. Approach your response as though it is a mini essay with complete sentences, distinct paragraphs, and correct spelling and punctuation. Grammar and spelling matter. Online courses demand the same standard of academic communication and use of grammar as face-to-face courses.
Using a minimum of 300 words, provide a thorough response to the following prompts:
- The left hemisphere specializes in verbal and analytical functions. The right hemisphere focuses on nonverbal abilities, such as spatial-manipulative skills, art and musical abilities, and visual recognition tasks. Keep in mind that both hemispheres are activated when we perform almost any task or respond to any stimuli. If your brain and only one hemisphere, would you want it to be the right hemisphere or the left? Support your decision by referring to the learning material for this module.
- You share half of your genetic makeup with each of your parents, but you are no doubt very different from both of them. Spend a few minutes jotting down the similarities and differences between you and your parents. How do you think your unique environment and experiences have contributed to some of the differences you see?
- Select either of the interactive websites below and describe your experience of it.
In addition, you are expected to provide a supportive and/or reflective comment to the post of one classmate. In order to receive the maximum possible 15 points, you must accurately and thoroughly answer each part of the discussion prompt using at least 300 words (including the prompt in your response is not included in the word count) and comment on the post of one of your classmates.
You can see a rubric that has been associated with an assignment by clicking the three little dots that appear at the top right corner of the prompt.
