  1. Logbook 6

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations (it's the last one!!! ). I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work: The first: Summary: Members of this group talked about neuropsychology. More precisely, they talked about the field of memory. After presenting neuropsychological tests, the HM patient’s case was proposed to us. Thanks to this, they were able to able to explain the different forms of memory. At the end of the presentation, students passed a test on working memory. Explanation: There are two main types of memory: short-term in which working memory is stored and long-term memory. The latter can be explicit or implicit. Broca was the first to make the link between brain and language. Conclusion: In conclusion, notions presented were interesting. However, the pace was quite brisk, the presentation was difficult to understand. More interaction with students may have allowed for better understanding. Overall, it was a very extensive presentation. The second: Summary: Lea, Farah and Marion talked about street harassment. They began by showing a short video. From there, they asked the students to find out the subject of the presentation. A test was also done to find out how many people in the classroom were already victims of street harassment. Another video was also shown during the presentation. In this one we see a girl walking down the street wearing a t-shirt and black jeans. Explanation: Most woman and girls have the experience of street harassment. It can be honking or sexually explicit comments for example. Harassment results in particular from objectification. This concept brings the idea that woman is considered as an object. Conclusion: It was very interesting to link a current phenomenon with psychology. This presentation was very interactive and easy to understand. Maybe more concepts from psychology should have been included.
  2. Logbook 5

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Summary: Members of this group talked about neuro-marketing. They all worked for a leading brand. They were invited to a conference on marketing techniques. They began their presentation with the logos game in which we had to find the brands represented by the different logos. When a group found the right answer, they would score get one point et one candy. The group with the most points won the pack of candies. Explanation: Delegates from each brand presented their marketing techniques. To take Ikea as an example, there is no clock in this store. This allows to lose track of time and stay longer in the store. Conclusion: It was interesting to approach psychology from a marketing perspective. In fact, it has allowed us to understand some of the techniques used by stores we all know. Although the presentation was very interesting, it would have been nice to interact more with the students.
  3. Logbook 4

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Summary: Members of this group talked about craziest psychological and scientific experimentations. To begin, several experiments were presented to us. We had to say if they really existed in the past. After that, the first human head transplant was introduced to us. This transplant was realized by Sergio Canavero. At the end of the presentation, a movie extract was also shown to us. Explanation: Head transplant would require many abilities from patients. On the one hand, they should discover themselves again. On the other hand, cognitive abilities are essential such as attention, memory and perception. However, this new type of transplant raises ethical questions. In fact, how is an individual defined? What about reproduction? Conclusion: It was interesting to approach psychology from a new perspective. The view of aberrant experiments. Nevertheless, it was difficult to follow the guiding thread of this presentation. In fact, there was a lot of information and transitions were not always clear.
  4. Logbook 3

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Summary: Clémentine, Marion, Elsa and Oscar talked about social psychology. More precisely, they talked about conformity. Their presentation began with a crossword puzzle in which we had to find the key words of their subject. During their course, Oscar repeatedly clapped his hands. A small group of students had been informed of this and also had to clap their hands. The aim of this experiment was to see if non-accomplice students would conform. Moreover, a video was shown to the class. This one presented a social experiment made recently in the USA. Explanation: There are two types of conformity: public conformity and private conformity. Private conformity takes place when a person changes his point of view and adheres to it. Conversely, public conformity appears when a person changes his point of view and he does not adhere to this one. Conclusion: To conclude, the hand clapping experience was very interesting! Maybe they could have made a little bit more slides in their slideshow. In fact, sometimes they talked fast and it was difficult to understand.
  5. Logbook 2

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Presentation 1: Summary: My classmates and I talked about stereotypes and prejudices which are social psychology concepts. We began our presentation by introduce ourselves as three sisters who work for an association against stereotypes and prejudices in our society. The name of this association is “ABM”. To connect our subject and theory, we reproduce an experiment realized in 1994 by Macrae, Milne and Bodenhausen. We separate the class into two groups, we told the first group a list of adjectives about James who is an artist. After that, we told the second group a list of adjectives about James. The fact that James is an artist activate stereotypes and allow to memorize more words. Explanation: Lippman introduce the term “stereotype” to behavior scientists in 1922. According to him, stereotype is a kind of world map which allow us to be directed in social reality. From the moment when we personally join a stereotype, it become a prejudice. The author who worked on this question is Allport. Conclusion: Our presentation was really too short. To avoid it, we should have rehearsed our presentation together. We will apply that in the future. Presentation 2: Summary: Clara, Constance and Marianne are the “CCM”. They talked about moral judgement which is a developmental psychology concept. Their presentation began with an extract of the 1O1 Dalmatians and another of Robin Hoods. After that, they explained to us moral judgment and they presented us two authors which are Piaget and Kohlberg. During the presentation, we had to express our opinion with paper signs. Explanation: Judgement is the action to judge someone and it depends of representations of the people. Moreover, moral judgement is not an opinion, it depends of individual and social faiths. According to Piaget, before five years, children did not have moral concern. After five years, children acquire rules outsides themselves. Around ten years they realize that there are conventions. After that, Kohlberg purpose the dilemmas in which six stadiums can be located. Conclusion: Thanks to videos extracts and numerous example it was very easy to understand the topic. Moreover, quiz with paper signs was very attractive! Maybe, if they had given us more time to think about answers, more people would have participated.
  6. Bonjour, Je dois, pour un futur stage, envoyer une lettre de motivation. J'ai quelques difficultés en orthographe, serait il possible que quelqu'un me corrige ? Merci d'avance. Objet : Demande de stage, Licence 3 Psychologie Madame, Monsieur Le Centre Hospitalier Lucien Hussel a particulièrement attiré mon attention lors de mes recherches de stage. Ce sont notamment les démarches entreprises depuis 2003 concernant l’amélioration de la qualité des soins et de gestion des risques qui m’ont permis un plus grand intérêt pour ce centre hospitalier. En effet, il s’agit pour moi d’une démarche importante que j’aimerais trouver sur mon futur lieu de stage. L’Equipe de Liaison et de Soins en Addictologie correspond au service qui m’intéresse le plus. Effectivement, je suis particulièrement intéressée par les problématiques de l’addiction et des conduites à risques que j’ai pu découvrir lors d’enseignements de psychopathologie et de psychologie de la santé. Etudiante en 3ème année de licence de psychologie au sein de l’Université Lumière Lyon 2, je suis particulièrement sensible et intéressée par une approche clinique à orientation psychanalytique. Je porte également beaucoup d’intérêt au domaine de la psychologie de la santé. J’envisage d’intégrer, l’année prochaine, un master en psychopathologie clinique. De ce fait, un contact de terrain ainsi que la rencontre avec un professionnel me permettra, sans doute, de murir mon projet. Le fait de n’avoir, jusque-là, jamais eu l’occasion de pratiquer un stage me motive d’autant plus à découvrir la réalité du métier. Effectuer un stage au sein de votre service serait donc pour moi l’occasion de saisir les apports théoriques qui m’ont été enseigné jusque-là. Dynamique, curieuse et motivée, je serai ravie d’apprendre à vos côtés d’autres aspects du métier, d’avantage axé sur la pratique ainsi que d’échanger à propos de divers questionnements. Concernant les spécificités du stage, il s’agit d’un stage d’observation, d’une durée de 30 demi-journées (105 heures). Celui-ci doit être effectué entre janvier et début mai auprès d’un public adulte. L’organisation de mes cours me permet d’être disponible les jeudi et vendredi de chaque semaine ainsi que les week-ends et vacances universitaires. En espérant que mon parcours et mes motivations correspondront à ce que vous attendez de vos futurs stagiaires, veuillez agréer Madame, Monsieur, mes salutations distinguées.
  7. English presentation N° 2

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a course. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Thank you in advance. Here is my work: 1) Introduction Good morning everyone! We are the A.B.M. “A” like Abby, “B” for Betty and “M” like Maggy. We are sisters and we have created an association in order to speak about the prejudices which invade our society. We have been doing this for months, intervening in universities so as to speak about prejudices with students like you. We deeply think that your point of view and your feelings could be worthwhile and interesting for our experiment. Today we came to your class and we hope you will like this experiment. 2) Presentation of the activity First of all, we will introduce you a little experiment realized in 1994 by Macrae, Milne and Bodenhausen. To do this experiment, we need to separate the class into two groups. The first group will wait in the corridor while the other one will stay here with us. 3) Passation First group: Well, everybody has to take a pen and a piece of paper. I am going to read out a list of adjectives one time, then, you have to memorize it and report it on your piece of paper. So, James is an artist : he is creative, warm, selfish, capricious, active, unconventional, generous, progressive, sensitive, brave You can write down what you memorized! How many people have below five words on his paper? Now I’m going to ask you to wait in the corridor! Second group: Welcome back everybody. You will only need a piece of paper and a pen! I’m going to read you a list of adjectives about James and you have to memorize it. Are you ready? James is creative, warm, selfish, capricious, active, unconventional, generous, progressive, sensitive, brave. You can write down what you memorized! How many people have below five words on his paper? So, everybody come back in class now! I’m going to explain you what just happened. To the students of the first group, I told them ONE more thing about James, that he is an artist. Thanks to that precision, you categorized him and you should have memorized more words than the second group. First possibility: It worked on this group! In fact, (nombre) members of the first group have memorized more than five words against (nombre) for the second group. Second possibility: Unfortunately, it didn’t work on this group… But it’s very good!! You aren’t influenced by stereotypes! Conclusion That’s it, we are done! We hope you enjoyed this experiment! As a matter of fact, we are very thankful; we have a good time with you and you were very implicated which is great! Thank you once again and have a nice day!
  8. Logbook

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a logbook of many presentations. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Furthermore, the logbook has to be written with a formal academic writing, I don't know if my work is correct for that. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Summary: This group talked about neuropsychology. They made a brief presentation of commons brain damages. Three parts have been developed in this presentation: an introduction, a development for numerous brain areas and a conclusion. To move to a brain area to another, a fake gun was used. For each brain location, causes, disorders and treatments were touched on. Explanation: Brain mapping is a set of techniques. Various experiments were conducted like brain stimulations. Thanks to these experiments, many brain areas has been discovered. Hippocampus is linked to memory disorders and Broca area to language production disorders. If brain mapping allows to understand and localize disorders, then, progress is still to be made. Conclusion: Despite the subject which might be difficult to treat, explanations were clear. Finally, use a fake gun makes the lesson more attractive.
  9. English presentation N° 1

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a course. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Stereotype is a social psychology’s concept. We cannot speak about stereotypes without speaking about social categorization and prejudices 1) At first, we are going to talk about categorization: The categorization is a concept which belongs to the cognitive psychology. To have a better understanding of the world, we organize and we tidy up information. Objects are classified by categories according to their similarities. In social psychology, categorization is applied to the people. We categorize according to the age, the sex... This process of categorization is on the base of stereotypes. For humans, we don’t just make a simple categorization. We are going to give to every social group member, the characteristics of the social group. After categorization…. The stereotype: We categorize people and objects according to the idea that all elements of a category have the same nature. Here is the foundation of stereotypes. Lippman introduced the term « stereotype » to behavior scientist in 1922. For him, stereotype is a kind of world map which allows us to be directed social reality. After that, a lot of scientists worked on this notion. Leyens gave a famous definition of stereotype: according to him, « Stereotypes are shared faiths concerning personal characteristics of a social group » Stereotypes are spontaneous tendencies to generalize. Moreover, they have a consensual dimension. They are two types of stereotypes: - Auto-stereotypes which are stereotypes on our social group. - Hétérostéréotypes which are stereotypes on the other groups. Activation of the stereotype is almost automatic. These faiths are learnt very early. According to some studies, numerous stereotypes are learnt at six years old. Stereotype isn’t a prejudice: From the moment that we personally join a stereotype, he become a prejudice. The author who worked on this question is Allport. The prejudice appears when a person has a unfavorable attitude towards someone because of his membership in a particular group. If the stereotype is rather a descriptive and collective notion. The prejudice would be more individual and more normative. Conclusion: To conclude, we are going to talk about « stereotype threat ». A person who is victim of a stereotype is going to be afraid to confirm this one. For example, one of a famous stereotype about women is that they don’t know how to drive. According to stereotype threat notion, they will be afraid to verify that, and this will be affect their performance!
  10. Michael Peterson case / plea

    Hello! I'm studying English at univesity and I have to write a plea. I do that but I'd like someone with a good English level to correct my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : Introduction : Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, today, Michael Perterson might cross the rest of his days in jail. Certainly, it's a necessary punishment for a murder. But don't you think that this punishment has to be justified by absolute certainty of the truthfulness of the charges ? Don't you think that punish an innocent is one of the most unfair thing which can exist ? Today, Mr Peterson is accused of hs wife murder, but please, confine yourself to evidence ! Part 1 : Review of the facts / evidence - Have we the testimony of someone who saw the murder ? NO - Has Michael ever been violent towards Kaithleen or someone else ? OF COURSE NOT. The testimony of his children and his ex-wife allow us to say that MIchael was a very kind person who loved and took care about his family. The only on which is based violence hypothesis is the second autopsy of Elisabeth R. But, ladies and gentlemen, do you really think that in this case in which since the beginning makes my client a perfect murderer, an autopsy realized by the same person that gor Kaithleen case is admissible ? - The prosecution attempted to find the murder weapon, but it's definitively cannot be that ! The arguments raised are not consistent with the case. You know, hunger for power and search for revenge are the worst danger in our society and all this case, I can assure you, is completely get up to punish Michael Peterson not for a crime but for questioned the credibility of some important persons. Please, don't be a part of this unfairness ! Part 2 : Family Today, Michael Peterson will be traumatized by all the events and charges against him for the rest of his life. Besides the pain of his wife's death, because yes he loved her sincerly !! Michael is charged with her murder on the one hand but also with the murder of Elisabeth R. on a other hand. My client will be accused of a murder for all the woman he loved in his life? Who among you will have the courage to suffer charges which involve your innocence and your honesty ? Michael Peterson had this courage because he went to save his family and face Kaithleen's death with them because he loves them sincerly ! Conclusion : I'm convinced that the power of love is more stronger as manipulation. You have all the elements to make a fair decision. Thank you.

  12. Newspaper article correction

    Hello! I study english in univesity and I have to write a newspaper arcticle. I do that but I'd like someone with a good english level corrects my work. I think that there are some tense and grammar mistakes. Thank you in advance. Here is my work : The Green suitcase : ten years later, we know the truth ! Remember, ten years ago, a tragedy happened in a hotel. A woman, Mrs Green, was killed. Her husband was found guilty and he’s in jail since the murder. But today, we have some new information. Green’s daugther, Judith, went to the same hotel to discover the place where her mom died. But in reality, she found the key of the investigation ! When Judith arrived at the hotel she found the cook which always works on the same place. After a two-hour conversation, Judith went upstairs, in the same room that his parent’s ten years ago. After several days, she noticed an unstuck corner on the carpet. When she looked closer, she found a letter. Judith was totally upset when she read this letter. In this one, Mrs Green relates that she feels in danger and she tells everything that happened just before her death. We learn that Mr et Mrs Green, Dr White and Mr Brown had won a lot of money at the lottery. To celebrate that, they went to the hotel. But in reality, Mr and Mrs Green had a plan. They wanted to keep all the money for them and killed Dr White and Mr Brown during the walk on the hills. At the last moment, Mrs Green changed her mind, she panicked and she decided to give up the murder. She said to her husband that she had lost the key of the suitcase in which the winning ticket was. In the letter, Mrs Green says that her husband is very angry and that she feels in danger. Dr White and Mr Brown never spoke about the winning ticket, we suppose that it’s to not be wrongly accused. Probably, Mr Green hadn’t spoken about the White and Brown murder plan to not increase his sentence.
