Purpose and Topic:
Please choose an activity to perform in public that is an example of nonconformity or breaking the norm. While creativity is encouraged, you are not permitted to choose an activity that is OFFENSIVE, ILLEGAL, and/or UNSAFE. You then will write a paper about your experiences. The purpose of this paper is to apply theories from Social Psychology to your chosen activity while having fun! For example, a person walking through a grocery store with a paper bag over her head is very unusual but does not hurt anyone. Before performing your activity, consider WHAT and WHO you may need to assist you. In the previous example, it would be important to have friends present to guide the student so she does not bump into things and get hurt. Also, be sure that you can personally witness others’ reactions to you, in addition to or exclusive of others telling you about reactions – if you rely only on the report of other people, your experience may not be as enriching.
In your paper, please devote a section to describing how you went against the norm. Then, in the next section, describe theories within Social Psychology that relate to the activity you chose. Lastly, have a section in which you tie it all together – how do the concepts we have studied in class relate to the activity you performed? How did people’s reactions fit with what you have learned in class?
Please include page numbers on each page of the paper. You are NOT required to include a separate title page or abstract page, but I will expect that there is minimal room on the first page devoted to your name and identifying information if you choose not to have a title page. If you choose to use a title page, great – this is excellent practice. Please note that title pages, abstract pages, and References pages do NOT count toward the total number of required pages of text.
Consistent with APA style, you are required to use in-text citations to support your work
