Help me study for my Sociology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
View videos about the following famous social psychology experiments: Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment, Milgram’s Obedience Study, and Asch’s Conformity Study (websites for each are listed under your required readings for the week).
Based on the videos, this week’s readings , and additional research, write a 1500-2000 word analysis (excluding title page and references) of one of the following historical events:
- My Lai Massacre
- Heaven’s Gate Cult
Identify the sociopsychological environmental influences for your chosen historical event. Focus on the attitudes in response to a seemingly passive environment, being sure to include the effects of mere exposure, implicit attitudes, evaluative conditioning, and direct experience. A minimum of two academic references is required.
