Introductory Psychology Winter 2009 Steven Clark 3111-E Psychology Class: MWF 1:10 - 2:00 Office hours: MW 2:00 - 3:30 Office phone: 951-827-5541 email: [email protected] Readings & Writings: There is no “textbook” for this class. We are going to do something that no Intro Psych class at UCR has ever done. We will not have a textbook. So, how will you learn anything? 1. Ninety-five percent of what you need to know about psychology - at an introductory level - can be found on the internet. We will find it. We will download it. Some of what we find on the internet will be inaccurate. Part of our job (mine in particular, because I am the “teacher”), is to figure out what is accurate and what is not. 2. We will write our own textbook. I am going to call it The UCR FUBU Introduction to Psychology, 2009 Edition . (I am open to alternative titles). I’ll write most of it, but you’ll help. It’s your textbook, too. Evaluation: Course grade is based on (a) midterm and final exams, and (b) other assignments. You can calculate your final grade with the following equation: Grade = [(.25 x Midterm-1) + (.25 x Midterm-2) + (.35 x Final) + (.15 x other.)] Letter grades are assigned with the usual .90, .80, .70, .60 cutoffs. Grades are based solely on exams and quizzes. There is no extra credit, and no “deals” or special arrangements.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
