T C 302 • Adolescence: Self And Society

42900 • Spring 2017
Meets TTH 8:00AM-9:30AM CLA 0.108

Course Description:

Adolescence is a unique time in a person’s life. In addition to rapid biological changes, teenagers also experience new challenges in their personal relationships with friends, family, and romantic/sexual partners, and begin to occupy new roles in society. This class will integrate research and scholarship from medicine, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, literature, and law in order to understand adolescent development. Topics include the biological changes of puberty; how the adolescent brain is different from the adult brain; how relationships with parents, friends, and romantic partners change during the teenage years; the emergence of mental health problems; laws regarding when teenagers are granted privileges and responsibilities (e.g., being tried as an adult, being able to buy alcohol legally); and how contemporary American society understands and treats adolescents in comparison to other cultures, past and present. In addition to reading non-fiction and fiction books, students will learn to locate and read articles published in scientific journals. Students will also respond critically to television and film representations of adolescence.

Texts (may be excerpted):

• Columbine by Dave Cullen (Grand Central Publishing)
• Not Under My Roof: Parents, Teens, and the Culture of Sex by Amy T. Schalet (University of Chicago Press)
• Promises I Can Keep: Why Poor Women Put Marriage before Motherhood by Kathryn Edin (University of California Press)
• Coming of Age in Samoa by Margaret Mead (William Morrow)
• Millennials Rising: The Next Great Generation by Neil Howe and William Strauss (Vintage Books)
• Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers (Scholastic)

Additional texts, including scientific journal articles, are to be determined.
• Example: Steinberg, L. (2013). The influence of neuroscience on U.S. Supreme Court decisions about adolescents’ criminal culpability. Nature Neuroscience, 14, 513-518.

Assignments:

Writing

• Posts to Discussion Board: Students will be required to post a brief (300-500 words) reading response to the Canvas discussion board at least once per week. These are informal, blog-like posts intended to stimulate active thinking about readings before the beginning of seminar discussions. Responses will be graded as good, satisfactory, or unsatisfactory/incomplete. [10% of final grade]

• Film Responses: Students will write two 2-page response papers that respond to television shows or films that represent teenage life (e.g., Boyhood, The Hunger Games, My So-Called Life). [10% of final grade]
• Short Papers: Students will write two 3-4 page papers. One paper will be on adolescent experiences in armed conflict, and may draw on the novel, Fallen Angels, and materials from the Vietnam exhibit of the Lyndon B. Johnson library. (See “Gems of the University” below.) The second will be on pubertal and sexual development in adolescence, and may draw on Coming of Age in Samoa, Not Under My Roof, and/or Promises I Can Keep. Each paper will be submitted twice (first draft and revision after comments from peers and instructor) for a total of four graded assignments. [20% of final grade]

• Final Paper: Students will be required to choose one controversy regarding law or public policy (e.g., parental notification for elective abortion, life without parole for teenage offenders, graduated drivers’ licenses) and write an 8-page paper describing the controversy, their policy recommendation, and evidence from research in neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, and/or sociology that supports this recommendation. There will be a number of smaller assignments throughout the semester to scaffold completing this assignment, including completing an annotated bibliography and structured outline. Students will be required to circulate first drafts of their papers for peer review. [25% of final grade] This course meets the requirements of the Writing Flag.

Oral Presentation

Students will give a 10-15 minute presentation summarizing the arguments from their final paper. Students may use visual aids (e.g., Powerpoint slides). The class will be given the opportunity to respond to the speaker’s presentation with comments and questions. [10% of final grade]

Discussion

The majority of class time will be devoted to group discussion. To facilitate discussion, students will be required to post a brief reading response to a Canvas discussion board before class (see “Writing”, above). [25% of final grade]

Information Literacy

In order to prepare students to write their final paper, there will be a number of tutorials on using library databases and search engines (e.g., Google Scholar) to locate and download scientific articles, distinguishing reputable from untrustworthy internet sources, preparing citations and references sections, and avoiding plagiarism. Students will also be required to complete an annotated bibliography as part of the Final Paper assignment.

Gems of the University

During one class period, we will visit the “Vietnam Conflict” exhibit at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum. Insights and impressions from this visit will be used in our discussion of adolescents as soldiers, and students will draw on this experience when writing one of their short papers.

University Lecture Series

One lecture from the University Lecture Series (to be determined) will be required. Students will be asked to comment on the lecture in their weekly post to the Canvas discussion board, and the lecture content will be discussed during the next class period.

Course Overview
This is an introductory undergraduate lecture course on abnormal psychology.  We will discuss major forms of adult psychopathology, including mood and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders.  Course topics include definitions of “normal” versus “abnormal” behavior; biological and environmental risk factors for psychopathology; symptoms and diagnostic criteria; types of pharmacological and behavioral treatment; and current controversies in the field of abnormal psychology. 

Course Policies
Textbook
The required text is:
Butcher, J.N., Mineka, S., and Hooley, J.M.  (2009).  Abnormal Psychology. (14th Edition.).  Boston, MA:  Allyn & Bacon. 
Be sure to purchase the correct edition! In addition, there will be six articles posted on the class website on Blackboard.  These are listed in the course schedule with the abbreviation [BB]. 

Prerequisites
The Psychology Dept. will drop students who do not meet the following prerequisites: (1) PSY 301 and PSY 418 (or equivalent listed in course schedule) with a C or better, and (2) upper division standing (60 hours completed).  Dropped students will be notified by the 12th class day.

Important Dates
•    January 22, 2010:      Last regular Add/Drop day
•    February 15:          Last day to Drop a course without academic penalty
•    March 15-20:          Spring Break
•    May 7:             Last Day of Class
•    May 12:        Final Exam (7:00 – 10:00 p.m.)


Attendance
Regular attendance is crucial.  More than three unexcused absences will result in an automatic half grade-step deduction in your FINAL grade (e.g., B to B-) for each absence.  Chronic lateness will also impact your participation grade.

Grading
Your overall grade will be based on exams, quizzes, and class participation.  There will be four 100-point exams (including the cumulative final exam) that together will account for 2/3 of your final grade.  There will also be four 40-point quizzes, plus an additional 40 possible points for class participation, that will account for the remaining 1/3 of your final grade.
 
Questions about an exam or quiz must be raised during office hours in the week immediately following the class meeting when you received that grade.  You may ask the TA or Professor to explain why a particular answer was correct or incorrect, or to review the underlying concepts, but your grade will NOT be changed under any circumstances.

UT has switched to the plus/minus system:
 
A     = 93 – 100
A-     = 90 – 92
B+     = 87 – 89
B     = 83 – 86
B-     = 80 – 82
C+     = 77 – 79
C     = 73 – 76
C-     = 70 – 72
D+     = 67 – 69
D     = 63 – 66
D-     = 60 – 62
F     = Less than 60
 

Under NO circumstances (e.g., if you are just below a cut-off point; if you “need” a particular grade, etc.) will additional points be given to your final grade.  Please note that it is against UT policy to discuss your grades by email or by phone. 

Make-Up Exams
A make-up exam may be scheduled only with ADVANCE permission from the professor.  The following are acceptable reasons to schedule a make-up exam:  (1) Illness or injury, with a note from a medical professional; (2) Death or serious illness in the family, or other family emergency; (3) Travel for a scientific meeting or with an official UT organization.   If you will be missing a scheduled exam, please email the TA (with the professor CC’ed) as soon as possible.
