Final Project: Language as an exemplar of cognitive psychological concepts
It was suggested at the beginning of this unit that language can serve as a recapitulation of many of the principles of cognitive psychology that have been discussed throughout this course. That is to say that language, as a wholly cognitive process, requires attention, reception and perception of information, involves verbal mental representations, memory storage and retrieval, is integral to our ability to problem solve, reason, and to make decisions. This final project asks the student to analyze the idea that language can be used as an exemplar of cognitive psychology and to conclude whether or not it is true, in whole or in part.

Students will review the material discussed during each of the units of the course with the goal of describing how well (or not) language acts as a representative model of that material. The important points discussed during each unit should be defined and described in detail followed by a clear and well-supported description of why language does or does not fit into that description.

The student should conclude the paper by summarizing the goodness-of-fit of language as an exemplar of the cognitive psychological concepts discussed in this course.

Because the Anderson’s Cognitive Psychology and its Implications has been central to the progress of the course, it will be the primary source for the paper. However there should be a minimum of one other source per unit to support the student’s position (a total of six (6) additional sources). Students might find that articles retrieved and discussed on the Discussion Boards might be useful, and the text identifies source articles in every chapter.

The paper should use APA standards for formatting (double spacing, running header, Times New Roman Font at size 12, cover page, references, appropriate citations, primarily the student’s own words with quoted material used rarely if at all. The paper should be no less than eight pages long (not counting the cover page or references).
