V.  Sources

Use at least 3 reliable sources to research these concepts. You should start with your textbook since you are looking to LEARN these concepts before you can apply them.  Your text can be included in your  three required sources.   You should then watch my video in the Media Gallery for help understanding these concepts.  This lecture can also be used as one of your sources.  You may use magazines and newspapers and other media sources.  Remember that you have to learn these concepts, so go to sites that teach the concept.  Journal articles are not usually helpful in doing that. For definitions, most .org websites are good, and any .edu site will be good.   You can also use psychological sites such as:
