RACE Rubric Review R= Restate A= Answer C= Cite Evidence E= Expand your answer Question: Which of the five original schools of psychology would you have joined had you been alive at the time of their inception? Why? (R) As someone who is interested in how people learn, (A) I would choose to be a functionalist. (C) Functionalism interests me more than structuralism (its rival), because it focuses more on processes rather than on static points (4). (E) Functionalism would focus on a learner’s thought process rather than on a concrete, resultant thought. I could then unravel the mystery of how learning through perception takes place.

Example of Expansion text-to-self or text-to-world Georgie’s Example: I can relate to Theme #4, which is that behavior is determined by multiple causes. My brother, Ret, was diagnosed with ADHD in first grade. At first, his medication did not help him control his behavior. He must have seen the doctor ten times before my mother finally told her that she and my dad had split up at the beginning of the year, and that’s when Ret’s behavior changed. The doctor lowered Ret’s dosage guessing that the problems at home were aggravating Ret’s ADHD and that he was being over-medicated. Ret continued having problems in school that entire year. His behavior didn’t start improving until the next year, when things had calmed down at home. Therefore, my brother’s behavior was being impacted by both his physiology and his environment.

This insistence that the unconscious should be eliminated from all “scientific” psychological studies makes no sense even according to your own standards. Motivations, some unconscious, underlie all of our behaviors. Even for your blasted pigeons, their motivation for pushing that stupid little lever in their cages is “hunger.” Can you see hunger? No! So, Mr. Behaviorist, how can you possibly consider those experiments “scientific” and claim that my case studies in psychoanalysis aren’t? Contemptuous disdain, Sigmund Freud
