    HW: Write a reaction (1/2 - 3/4 of a page) about a time when you had a personal experience with two of the following:  Fundamental Attribution Error,  Just- World Bias,  Self-Serving Bias , or the Actor – Observer Bias. It could be that you experienced it or someone else judged you incorrectly because of it, or that you recognized one or more of these biases at play in a current event.

    Be ready to share with others next class so don’t write anything that would disturb you to share – names of others should not be used.


    You can reference notes from today's class on the Psychology Power Points page.
