Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
Information shared and discussed in this paper is beyond what is actually assessed. In-class activity and self-directed reading will contribute to the student’s knowledge base about indigenous psychologies and will build a firm initial foundation to understanding its relevance and application to contemporary psychological concerns. To competently complete tasks assigned for assessment, students will need to read broadly and pursue their own self-directed learning and writing outside of class time.
