BACKGROUND: In our previous units, we read about some of the ways in which ordinary workers are often underestimated or even abused. For this next project, you will read the Introduction and Chapter 7 (“Work as Flow”) of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. Chapter 7 deals with reasons for which some people enjoy work. We will learn about characteristics of people who are most capable of this kind of enjoyment (they have what the author calls “autotelic personalities”), and we will learn about characteristics of the jobs that are most conducive and most detrimental to enjoyment. You will do some relevant research on a topic that Chapter 7 covers. You will formulate a research question, locate and evaluate sources, and incorporate research into an essay.
Choose any topic covered in Chapter 7 of Flow. How has your research helped you develop your understanding of the topic?
In your essay, you should use at least three outside sources and the book (Flow). You should give Flow and at least one of your other sources significant analytical attention: I mean, don’t just dump in a couple of quotes; really show that you’ve thought about them seriously.
