Please answer any 2 of the following questions:
1. Please discuss whether your findings on the YouTube videos and ads support or detract from arguments made in the Chapter 7 text section ‘Imitation of Violence’.
2. *For the social comparison on social media article, compare rumination to self reflection, discuss which is better for identity formation and why?
3. We all have implicit biases. As you learned about implicit bias, what areas of life do you think you may need to be more aware of your thoughts? What are ways to mitigate these thought and ideas?
4. Think about all the readings about how our life, beliefs, behavior and values are socially constructed. You may want to refer back to module 4 and my review of the ISL readings thus far. How does social media construct our social life and social being? Use examples from the unit and from life.
