*The trial case I selected is
Ramona v. Ramona; 1997, California; false memory
* The three Journal articles I
selected to support my case are: https://scholarship.law.wm.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1713&context=wmlr
https://digitalcommons.lmu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1917&context=llr
https://scholarlycommons.law.wlu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1653&context=wlulr
* Conduct the research
that supports your final PowerPoint presentation file
Caution: Do not depend on
newspaper articles for your presentation, at all. You may have found some
interesting articles and website to choose your case. But: do not reference
media reports in your presentation except once to cite how you might have
learned of a case. Newspapers publish journalism, not research and if they do,
it is second hand. Newspaper articles are not the appropriate basis for a
presentation in a psychology class. The most important components to pursue for
your presentation (and factor into your grade):
· Court and/or legal documents
that summarize the case, such as the judge’s ruling(s), and which are evident
in your presentation (Nexus Uni, Casetext, Westlaw, etc.).
· At least 3 Psychology and Law
journal articles are required. These articles must address the law and
psychology issue directly applicable to your case (text + classic readings get
you going in right direction).
· You are responsible for
choosing those three psychological research articles that you understand and
can explain in your presentation such that your application to the facts of the
case make sense.
Instructor Guidance: Cite the
psychology and law research and theory that you decide is relevant to
explaining what happened during the trial and/or predicted the outcome of the
trial, for instance, the behavior of the attorneys, police, defendants,
prosecutors, plaintiffs, witnesses, judges, jurors, and so on. Do not present
research that is irrelevant to the facts of the case. Seriously.
* Do note that I retain all
prior semester Psychology and Law presentations. Do not think grabbing a prior
presentation will work to your advantage whether you find it from a
“friend” or on the web. It is fraud and that equals? Your grade on
the entire project will be an F and your course grade will be jeopardized. I am
not a cop but I don’t like when students take advantage and cheat to get grades
they do not deserve while other students work very hard. Do not test this
policy. You will be disappointed. Or worse.
Step 4. Upload plagiarism free
presentation in either a Safe-Assign/Turn it In Blackboard folder to be
determined (see Blackboard for the folder to use. It will be clearly named).
*One of the most important 21st
century workplace skills is the ability to present information in an organized
and coherent way. Your PowerPoint file should do just that. (if you are
unfamiliar with PowerPoint, see the tutorials located in the “PPT Knldge
Creation” folder in BB).
PowerPoint Submission
Guidelines:
1. You may use
pre-formatted designs in PowerPoint but be careful of using too many graphics.
Limit your pictures to a minimum to underscore your written text on a slide.
2. As you create your
PowerPoint files, attend o the the rubric provided in “Syllabus+Course
Docs” folder in BB . That is how I grade.
3. No points for any
presentation will be provided if a PowerPoint file is not provided in
Turn-It-In (or Safe-Assign – do be decided) at deadline date/time in syllabus.
4. Your uploaded file must NOT
be a PDF or you lose all points. You will receive a 0.
5. References must be in APA
style or deductions occur.
