V. Sources

Your text can be included in your three required sources. You should then watch my video in the Media Gallery for help understanding these concepts. You may use magazines and newspapers and other media sources. Remember that you have to learn these concepts, so go to sites that teach the concept. Journal articles are not usually helpful in doing that. For definitions, most .org websites are good, and any .edu site will be good. You can also use psychological sites such as:
