Overview: Students will host a mini discussion about where they think emotions develop from. Questions like "How did you know you were scared?" and "Why we cry when others are crying?" are debated.
Next, students briefly learn of the 3 theories of emotion. Teacher instructions included!
Then, students listen to an episode of the Psychfiles Podcast varying from the 'Ugly Betty' TV show and famous experiments to complete an accompanying handout. This also includes lecture notes on theories of what makes an emotion and where emotions come from. Student handout has all their notes on it for easy following.
Student Objectives: I will be able to evaluate the three theories of emotion in relation to life events.
