This is a lesson plan covering social cognition designed for a 75-minute Zoom class: Social Cognition Lesson Plan 

During this class:

  • Students will differentiate between perceptions based on a person’s physical appearance and those based on the descriptions of a person’s character (e.g., their likes, dislikes, etc.) and how both inform the process of impression formation.
  • Students will explain how split-second glances at a person’s face can bias their perceptions of an individual’s personality, even when they are presented with other information that might conflict with the information they get from a face.
  • Students will write about and discuss cultural influences on impression formation (e.g., how prejudice and stereotyping as well as collectivism and individualism influence impression formation.
  • Students will interpret class data by looking at a visualization of the results. Students will compare class data with published data, and discuss similarities and differences (and potential reasons for why these might differ).
