ENG 122 SDMC Week 3 What Lies Beneath the Surface Outline
I’m studying for my Social Science class and need an explanation.
After learning about the IAT and taking the test online, think about your results and the explanation provided by the website. Are the results surprising to you? Do you trust the outcome of the IAT? How did you feel while taking the test and how did you feel when you received the results? Were some parts of the IAT easier than others?
Think about the possible biases, assumptions, and opinions that may be influencing your work in this class. Will Mead’s ten strategies for overcoming unconscious bias help you compose a more objective argument?
4 paragraphs sharing what you learned from your IAT experience and relate it to Meads’ ten strategies for overcoming unconscious bias.
- remind the class of your research question and share your working thesis statement (See Writing a Thesis Statement (Links to an external site.)),
- identify your personal opinions, experiences, assumptions, and associations with the subject of your argumentative essay,
- explain how you intend to overcome your biases so you can write an objective research-based argument, and
- share how you plan to integrate research into your rough draft this week.
Be sure to speak up if you have any questions or concerns.
