These reflection and application writing assignments are designed to connect what you are learning conceptually in class to your own life or what you see in the world around you. These assignments also offer an opportunity to practice communicating about psychological concepts.
Have you been struggling with school (mental health?) due to the pandemic and the changes that have occurred because of it? Howso? Using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as a basis, how might you explain your struggle? If you are not struggling, how would Maslow’s hierarchy explain your experience?
This reflection should be about 1 page (typed/double-spaced) in length and will not require additional research outside of your book and/or lecture material, though you are welcome to add outside research if you wish. If you are using direct quotes from the book to make connections, remember to cite your book as a reference (any style is acceptable, just make sure to give credit where credit it due!). If you are using direct quotes from knowledge you have learned in class lectures, you do not need to cite.
