Read textbook chapter 4 (Cognition & Consciousness) & watch the TED Talk by Dr. Lera Boroditsky on how languages shape the way we think. Post a structured blog with strong paragraphs. (You may go beyond 500 words but I always look for quality than quantity.) Use the textbook chapter as a source to synthesize your ideas on how culture shapes our cognition and consciousness. (Cognition includes thinking, perceiving, reasoning, making decisions, dreaming, planning ahead, distinguishing sensual experienences and overall making sense of the external world in relationship to our internal world)
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
