How has your academic writing changed throughout the course? Provide examples. What areas in your academic program do you think have improved the most, and why?

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.” Include the following:

  • 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:
  • Perception
  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Language
  • Reasoning
  • Decision making
  • Problem solving
  • 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.

Include a minimum of two sources to support your ideas.

Format any citations within your presentation according to APA guidelines.

Review this week’s assigned reading in the course text, Essential Guide to Critical Reading and Writing. Then, review and reflect on the journal entry you wrote in Week 1. Provide a self-assessment in your journal this week on:

  • How has your academic writing changed throughout the course? Provide examples.
  • What areas in your academic program do you think have improved the most, and why?
  • What areas do you think you need further guidance? What is your strategy to improve the areas identified?

Your journal entry should be approximately 400–800 words. Include at least two Walden resources from the Learning Resources this week (that you used in your self-assessment).
