As people go about their day and encounter different situations and experiences, they use various cognitive processes. People often do not recognize that they are using cognitive skills, and do not understand how their brain functioning contributes to their daily life experience. This assignment provides insight into the cognitive processes that your brain goes through on a daily basis.
Create a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation to showcase a day in your brain in which you:
- Outline your typical day, from the time you wake up until you go to sleep.
- Identify 8 to 10 situations throughout the day when the following cognitive processes occur:
- Explain how the cognitive processes are used in the situation, and how they help you to adapt in your environment.
Include detailed speaker notes on each slide to use as a transcript of what you would say while presenting. Please make sure to use academic material from our course on each and every slide. As a rule of thumb, if you could have written a slide prior to taking the course, the material is not academic enough for a college-level assignment.
Include a minimum of two academic sources to support your ideas and cite them on your slides and/or in your speaker’s notes according to APA guidelines.
