|These roller-derby Peeps are experiencing Social Facilitation, given the cheering crowd.|
Lucky for you, AP Psychology student, there is an answer. Since 1.) Peeps make an effective medium for composing dioramas (note: don't question this premise) and 2.) we are currently studying Social Psychology, there could NOT be a better time to illustrate the principles you are studying by thoughtfully arranging Peeps in heartwarming (or chilling) scenes.
Imagine the tragic impact of the Bystander Effect on a group of Peeps! Or, a startlingly accurate recreation of Milgram's obedience study, with Peeps! Are Peeps susceptible to Social Loafing? You be the judge!
- You must submit (via Tweet or email) your photo of an original Peeps scene that illustrates a principle from the Social Psych Unit.
- The principle being illustrated must be identified (either in the photo or text of message).
- Entries will be accepted until midnight on Friday, April 25th.
- Accurate entries will earn 3 points toward their Social Psych test scores on Tuesday, April 29th. A winning entry will be declared based on votes from classmates. That entry will be awarded 5 points.
- You can team up, though points will be divided among teammates, so...decide if that's worth it. Remember what Social Loafing is? Yeah...
