Write a paper (2,100- words) that synthesizes information from the course. Do that by including the following:
1 A description of a current social problem or concern (e.g., climate change, prejudice/discrimination, women’s rights, terrorism, education, homelessness, etc.).
2 A behavioral analysis of the problem. Ask yourself, how would Skinner (or Watson, or Bandura, or Deci & Ryan, or another theorist) view the creation and persistence of this problem?
3 A behavioral solution to the problem. How can behavioral theories be applied to solve this problem? Determine a plan of action, even if it is hypothetical.
