Traumatic Memories and Repression PSYC 435Edit

Welcome to the Wiki course page for PSYC435. Below you will find everything you need to know about your wiki project for this semester.

You will have 4 graded tasks to complete for you wiki assignment. Your first task, will be to peer-review an assigned article. Check for inaccuracies, and verify the research citations, make sure it is free of jargon that would make it difficult for the public to read. You will not need to add or create any major sections in this article. Your second task will be to do a major overhaul on a wikipedia article that has been assigned to you. We have identified a number of articles related to traumatic memories and repression that are in need of being fixed and/or made. Third, you will be assigned to update or create a Wikipedia page for an assigned psychological scientist. Finally, your last assignment will be to peer-review two of your fellow students articles that they have updated.

There will be more details on the assignments added here during the semester.
