1 Grayman-Simpson Course Description SYLLABUS Cultural Psychology: Black Psychology Department of Psychology Cultural psychology is a subfield within the areas of social psychology and cultural anthropology. It involves the study of the interconnections between and among intergenerationally transmitted behaviors, meanings, and symbols, and psychological processes such as cognition, affect, personality structure, and behavior. This course offers a foundation to the field through a case study of Black Psychology. Specifically, we will examine the cultural psychological experiences of people of African descent, primarily African Americans, and Black Psychology as a specialty with important implications for human and social science conceptual paradigms, theory, knowledge production methods, and intervention. Course Objectives: (1) Develop an understanding of deep culture, national and transnational cultural identities, cultural enclaves, and subcultural/counter-cultural identities. (2) Gain insight into self and others as cultural beings. (3) Gain an understanding of ethical research practices within the field of cultural psychology.

If you find yourself missing more than two classes (excused or unexcused), you need to seriously consider withdrawing from this course, as staying on pace with the class will likely prove too difficult. Death in the family, participation in religious holidays, involvement in school-sponsored activities, and illnesses requiring medical attention are some examples of excused absences. Absence due to illness must be substantiated in writing by the treating professional in order to be considered excused. No exceptions. Unexcused absences will have a negative impact on your grade. Work missed due to unexcused absences will not be accepted and will not receive any credit. Participation You are expected to actively participate once here. Active participation includes: constructive engagement in class discussions and activities, completion of all outside class work as assigned, pursuit of academic support from the professor and/or ACE as needed, taking responsibility and being self-accountable for your academic work, and engagement in mutually respectful relationships with the professor and peers. Guidelines for all writing assignments, including reading questions, can be found at the end of the syllabus. Reading responses should be typed directly onto the page, printed, and turned in at the beginning of class for review. All written work must be typed. Late assignments will not be accepted and will not receive any credit. At the end of the semester, you will be asked to reflect upon your participation, evaluate it and justify your evaluation using a guideline provided by me. I, in turn will review your evaluations and justifications and either agree or disagree with your self-assessment based on my subjective perceptions of the quality of your participation. My disagreement with your self-evaluation may call for either a higher or lower rating of your participation. In instances of disagreement, I will provide you with a written counter-justification. Grading Philosophy (Maximum Points = 150) In my courses, points are earned. Everyone starts with a zero and earns his/her own grade based on demonstrated mastery of the material. You do not start with a 150 and lose points based on incompetence. The following article, published in Forbes, accurately represents my grading philosophy and perceived role as your professor.
4 Art Carden, Contributor Dear Student: I Don't Lie Awake At Night Thinking of Ways to Ruin Your Life When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJV) One of the popular myths of higher education is that professors are sadists who live to inflict psychological trauma on undergraduates. Perhaps you believe that we pick students at random and then schedule all our assignments in such a way as to make those students lives as difficult as possible. The older I get and the longer I do this, the more I recognize that we (the professors) need to be more transparent about our philosophies of evaluation. How does this work? Let s clarify a few things. First, I do not take off points. You earn them. The difference is not merely rhetorical, nor is it trivial. In other words, you start with zero points and earn your way to a grade. You earn a grade in (say) Econ 100 for demonstrating that you have gained a degree of competence in economics ranging from being able to articulate the basic principles (enough to earn a C) to mastery and the ability to apply these principles to day-to-day affairs (which will earn an A). I ve hurt my own grades before by confusing my own incompetence with competence and my own (bare) competence with mastery, so trust me: I ve been there, and I understand. Second, this means that the burden of proof is on you to demonstrate that you have mastered the material. It is not on me to demonstrate that you have not. My assumption at the beginning of each class is that you know somewhere between nothing and very little about basic economics unless you were lucky enough to have an exceptional high school economics course. Otherwise, why are you here? You might say that the course is a prerequisite for other things you want to do, but if that it is the case and you know the material, you re more than welcome to simply show up for the exams, ace them, and be on your way. In this light, consider this: the fact that you don t understand why you didn t earn full points for a particular question might itself help explain why you didn t earn full points. Don t take this personally or interpret it as a sneer. See it as a learning opportunity. If you understood the material and do note that there is a large difference between really understanding the material and being able to reproduce a graph or definition you might remember from class you would have answered the question flawlessly. I recommend (as I have recommended to many others) that you go back, take another crack at it, and see if you can find where you have gone wrong. Then bring it by my office, and we will talk. Finally, I m here to be a mentor and instructor. This means that our relationship differs from the relationships that you have with your friends and family. Please don t infer from this that I don t care about you, because I do. A lot. I want to see you make good choices. I want to see you understand basic economics because I hope it will rock your world as it continues to rock mine and because the human consequences of lousy economic policy are enormous. That said, you should never take grades personally. I don t think you re stupid because you tank an exam, an assignment, or even an entire course. Economics is hard. A D or an F on an economics exam does not diminish your value in God s eyes (or in mine) or indicate that economics just isn t for you. It probably means you need to work smarter, and I m here to help you with that. Dear student, I once thought as you do. I once carried about the same misconceptions, the same litany of cognitive biases, and the same adolescent desire to blame others for my errors. I was (and remain) very poorly served by my
5 immaturity. As shocking as it may seem, I still cling to a lot of it, even after four years of college, five years of graduate school, and now five-and-a-half years as a professor. Economics is hard, but becoming a responsible member of a free society is very, very, very hard. I m still learning to put aside childish things. I hope you will do the same. Start now. The effort is daunting, but the rewards are substantial. This article was inspired by periodic discussions of evaluation in the academy that crop up on the website of the Chronicle of Higher Education and on InsideHigherEd.com. A former colleague used to quote the verse above at the top of his Economics 101 syllabus. I thank Rachel Smith for comments and suggestions.
