deindividuation, group polarization).

conformity, and obedience to authority.
 Discuss attitudes and how they change (ex: central route to persuasion)
 Predict the impact of the presence of others on individual behavior (ex: bystander
effect, social facilitation)
 Describe processes that contribute to differential treatment of group members
(ex: in-group / out-group dynamics, ethnocentrism, prejudice).
 Articulate the impact of social and cultural categories (ex: gender, race, ethnicity)
on self – concept and relations with others.
 Describe the variables that contribute to altruism, aggression, and attraction.
 Discuss attitude formation and change, including persuasion strategies and
cognitive dissonance.
