Textbook / Chapters 7-9 (7:Cognition: Thinking,
Intelligence, and Language.8:Development Across

Include three (3) additional outside sources of your choosing
If some of the concepts used are not in your textbook – LOOK THEM UP! Some of the concepts are things you’ve previously studied, some are not.
Content requirements:
Watch the movie: Inside-Out
Take notes as you watch the movie regarding Riley’s emotions, memories, problem solving and language skills (this may require you watch it more than once if you haven’t already seen it).
Write a three (3) page or more paper (paper will include all three (3) parts) that utilizes information from Chapters 7-9. Please include the following bold items from your textbook (of course you can choose to use more):
Part I:
What was the premise of the movie? Tell Riley’s story in terms of the following:
What is Affect? What were Riley’s five emotions?
What were some of Riley’s memories? Were those memories Procedural, Declarative or Flashbulb? Explain
What stage of development is Riley in? Would this event and the emotions it brings about have any effect on her development (Think Erikson)? If so, how?
How are Riley’s memories connected to her thinking, motivation and emotions?
How does Riley express her emotions? What does it look like on the outside?
What are Riley’s problem-solving skills? How does she work through her experience of having to move to a new town? Does she take control of her emotions?
What decisions does Riley make (good or bad)?
Can or does Riley recognize the feelings of her parents? How has her moving affected the relationship with her parents?
What is Language? How could Riley problem solve (use the language we use inside our heads) in order to be able to tell her parents what she is experiencing about her emotions and memories?
Is Riley afraid she will forget her previous experiences?
What does Cognition refer to? Does Riley have any Cognitive Maps? If so, describe one.
Using the Behaviorist position of B. F. Skinner, how does Riley’s environment determine her speech and language use?
What parts of Riley’s decisions are avoidance and/or acceptance?
What is Stress? What demands has Riley’s situation placed on her? What defense mechanisms does Riley use to shield herself from the stress?
Part II: Once you have Riley’s story written, think of your own story. Choose an event of your own that includes all of the above (cognition, development, emotions, memories, problem solving and language skills). Tell your story using the same concepts from the textbook used for Riley’s story.
Part III: Now, think of a scenario within your intended career (if you don’t have one yet, choose something) that would incorporate cognition, development, emotions, memories problem solving and language skills. Explain this scenario in detail using the same concepts from the textbook used for Riley’s story.
Now, I know the questions for Riley’s story are not in any particular order. It was designed that way so you can organize the paper into what best suites your writing style. Please do not simply answer the questions but write the paper in paragraph form.
Criteria for paper:
Paper should be three (3) full pages or more in length. This does not include any cover sheet or reference page you add.
Paper should be typed in Times New Roman, 12 point font, double spaced.
Organize this paper just like you would organize a good essay: introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Use either MLA or APA writing standard when citing your sources and creating the reference page.
Include three (3) outside sources of your choosing.
