Students will use pictures to determine the emotions that others feel. Afterwards, students will take an animal personality test to determine what type of animal they are most like. Students will then share with others what animal they are most like and why they are most like that animal.
The module examines the changes that take place in human beings across a broad range of areas including cognitive development, language development, personality and social development. In all these topics, the main focus is on the adolescent, the learner you will handle as a teacher.

The NOBA Project is a growing collection of expert-authored, open-licensed modules in psychology, funded by the Diener Education Fund. From these open modules, Tori Kearns and Deborah Lee created an arranged open textbook for her introductory psychology class. This textbook was created under a Round One ALG Textbook Transformation Grant.
Emphasis will be placed upon application of psychological knowledge to daily situations, and upon accessing and assessing information from a variety of sources about behavior.

Areas of psychology to be included are: research methods, neuroscience, human development, perception, consciousness, learning, memory, intelligence, motivation, emotion, personality, psychological disorders, psychotherapy, stress and health, and social psychology.Login: guest_oclPassword: ocl
This course surveys the major areas of contemporary psychology and its application to everyday life. Students will focus on psychological methods of inquiry while exploring the biological, cognitive and sociocultural factors that influence behavior. Topics include, but are not limited to, biological basis of behavior, cognition, learning, human development, personality, motivations and emotions, states of consciousness, sensory processes and psychopathology.
When you teach Introduction to Psychology, do you find it difficult — much harder than teaching classes in statistics or research methods? Do you easily give a lecture on the sympathetic nervous system, a lecture on Piaget, and a lecture on social cognition, but struggle with linking these topics together for the student? Do you feel like you are presenting a laundry list of research findings rather than an integrated set of principles and knowledge? Have you wondered how to ensure your course is relevant to your students? Introduction to Psychology utilizes the dual theme of behavior and empiricism to make psychology relevant to intro students. The author wrote this book to help students organize their thinking about psychology at a conceptual level. Five or ten years from now, he does not expect his students to remember the details of most of what he teaches them. However, he does hope that they will remember that psychology matters because it helps us understand behavior and that our knowledge of psychology is based on empirical study.

Students will be introduced to the basic concepts and methods of psychology. Course content surveys scientific methods, the brain and nervous system, sensation and perception, consciousness, learning and memory, personality, psychological disorders, and treatment. The classroom time will be composed of a combination of lectures (including PowerPoint multimedia lectures which I have designed) with student discussions, classroom experiments and demonstrations, discussions of articles and additional reading materials, in-class group work, films, in class use of technology, and student participation. Active note taking and critical thinking are strongly suggested.
This course introduces students to the scientific study of the mind and behavior and to the applications of psychological theory to life. Topics include: research methods; biopsychology; lifespan development; memory; learning; social psychology; personality; and psychological health and disorders. This course will establish a foundation for subsequent study in psychology. Resources include: Video, Articles, and Class Activities.
