Parenting in the Popular Media

Parenting in the Popular Media
Product Description
This assignment can be used in any general or AP psychology class as a way for students to apply the three major parenting styles to images of parents in the popular media. The assignment asks students to choose a parent from the media, analyze their parenting style, their discipline style, the attachment style of their children, how the parenting is impacting the child today, and predict how this will influence the child in 30 years. Students will create a power point presentation with this information that includes images and video clips and then present it to the class. After the presentations the activity can be wrapped up with a discussion of how these depictions impact young people today. This can be done as a 3 day in class activity (1 1/2 days in the lab, 1 1/2 days presenting depending on class size) or can be assigned to students for homework.
