Part 1: Introduction to LaTeX
Search google for a LaTeX template for writing a resume. Pick one you like and compile the template. Personalize the template so that it uses your own name and contact information. At the very least mention that you now have skills in R/presentation and LaTeX and that you did a Research Master in Psychology. You are allowed to write fictional information as well.
Compile the PDF and mail the .tex and .pdf files to me.
Part 2: Basics of writing in LaTeX
Part 3: Writing articles in LaTeX
Replicate the following article as closely as possible. You can ignore citations and the reference list. Mail your .tex file and your .pdf file to me.
