The content structure is based on David Myers’ Psychology textbook, 10th Edition. This is the beginning unit in the course and it will serve to give students a basic overview of the history of psychology and how research methods are applied in the field of psychology. There is also a need to establish classroom norms and expectations that will exist throughout the school year.
The activities for this unit are mostly discussion and simulation based. There is very little content lecturing by the teacher. I have a Power Point in this bundle to fill in content if you need it but the textbook reading should suffice for most students and classes.
All items are in Microsoft Word and Power Point so they should be easily modified to your needs
• A calendar of daily activities and content areas to cover.
• Video Links
• Homework Expectations
• Homework Review Questions
• Activity Descriptions
• I have also added two PowerPoint presentations that can be used as supplemental lecture notes.
• *All items are editable
