NOT WANTING TO DO THE PODCAST. JUST NEED A 3 PAGE LECTURE. NO RECORDING NEEDED.
Your assignment this week is to record a podcast lecture for undergraduate students introducing them to the concepts of structuralism and functionalism, providing information on the main theories and individuals and dealing with the fate of these two systems in American psychology. Your lecture should be personable; start with a description of what you plan to discuss, and end with a summary of the key points of your lecture and perhaps a question to send your students out to learn more. A reference list for your podcast should be submitted as well.
Be sure to include an examination of the following key historical figures and incorporate their thoughts into your own account of this era of psychology:
- Gustav Fechner
- Wilhelm Wundt
- Edward P. Titchener
- William James
- John Dewey
- James Rowland Angell
Support your lecture with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 7-10 minutes, plus supportive references list
Podcasts can be submitted as a .wav or an .mp4 file. The mp4 file is preferable since the file size is smaller.
Note: If you are not able to submit a podcast, write your lecture as a paper being sure to address the questions raised by the assignment. Be sure to discuss this first with your professor to obtain permission.

Length: 3-4 pages, not including title and reference page
