Instructions from teacher… Please only do only around 800 words im not sure how far this will get you in assignment.. I will pay for more just let me know
Use computer timeline software https://www.tiki-toki.com/account/
1. Visual interest score depends on whether you do the following:
a. Change from white font on black background: Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Lightbox Customization and use the pull-down menu to change from “Standard black” to “White with colored borders.” My eyes thank you!
b. Add a background image, or at least add color to the black void!
c. Use colors to distinguish the categories you create (#4 below).
2. References–In your Tiki-Toki timeline, move the mouse over the upper right-hand corner. Some words will show up (barely). Click on “About This Timeline.” In addition to your name and a title, you must also put your References list there. My name IS Verlie Doing you can use title History of Psychology ?
a. APA style is required. The list of your textbooks, which will be your primary source of info, should be just like they appear in the Syllabus (except for “paperback:” of course). Note that in APA style, the list is called References, not Bibliography or Works Cited.
b. In each entry (called a “story” in Tiki-Toki) you should cite your source as you would in the text of a term paper, for example (Benjamin, 2014) or (Guthrie, 2004). Any citation should refer back to a source listed in your References.
c. If you quote directly, you must “use quotation marks” and cite the page number or subheading of a webpage, like this: (Karwoski, 2014, p. 949). A citation is what you put in your entry/story to tell me where you got the info, most of which will be from our textbooks.
a. The purpose of assigning Contributors to categories is to put some order in your collection of people that will aid in understanding the development of Psychology as a discipline.
b. In semesters past, this has been the most difficult part of the Timeline, so I will provide them. USE THESE CATEGORIES (If you are unsure of where someone fits best, post to the Timeline DB):
i. Philosophy (including “moral philosophy” before Psychology became a discipline)
ii. Physiology (incl. neuroscience)
iv. Non-scientific psychology (incl. mesmerism, phrenology, physiognomy, etc.)
v. Physical Anthropology (helpful for early chapters of Guthrie)
vi. Prejudice and social issues (incl. eugenics and minority pioneers)
vii. Cognitive (incl. early research in perception, learning, and memory)
viii. Pre-functionalism (for example, James and Hall)
xiii. Applied (incl. psychological professions: clinical, school, advertising, etc.)
xiv. Context (see below)
a. You also need a category highlighting the Context in which psychology developed. Entries in this category should span most of your Timeline, not just be all bunched up within a few years. They should not be about psychology, but deal with what was happening in other aspects of life at the same time. It can be fashion, attitudes toward women or minorities, popular music of the day, international conflicts, social movements, history of pop music or organized crime…you name it! Make it international when possible. These entries are not to be taken from the textbooks! Include a minimum of 6 entries in this category.
b. Please use a different color for each category and make sure the labels are readable in the Standard view type.
5. Key Contributors from BOTH textbooks, Benjamin and Guthrie. In Guthrie, bear in mind that not all “Contributions” were positive, but are still a part of psychology’s history. Later chapters feature lesser known Contributors (not mentioned in Benjamin) who deserve entries in your Timeline.
a. Excellent = more than 50 Contributors (Your entries for context, psychological events, etc., will be in addition to 50+ entries for individuals)
b. Who to include? People who made notable contributions (the Timeline is a means of taking notes on the main characters described in our textbooks).
6. Key Contributions
a. Usually 3 or more things the texts report as contributions he or she made
b. Birth and death dates (you may have to research them, but no reference need be cited)
c. Various facts about them and their careers
d. Do not consult outside sources, such as online enclyclopedias, but focus on what the textbooks tell you. You can consult other History of Psych textbooks or assigned articles, but refence and cite them.
e. Rather than sentences in paragraphs, use a list format, such as bullet points. The Tiki-Toki story section “Extra Information” will allow you to do that.
7. Photo Credits
a. Use Wikipedia as your source of portraits of Contributors; they are almost always copyright free. You do not need an image for EVERY entry.
b. Credit the page where you saw the photo (URL) either at the end of the text for each person or in the ‘Caption’ of the portrait (shortened if need be—do not obscure the photo). This will be different from what you enter in the Source line for Tiki-Toki.
c. Your photo credit should NOT be a URL that ends in .png, .jpg, .gif, etc. because I want the link to the page where you found the photo, not just the photo itself.
