1 Green Sheet Psyc 190 Sec 7 Spring 2010 CL 216 MW 9-10:15 San Jose State University Dr. Nancy Eldred Phone: (408) 924-5653 Office: DMH 318 Hours: Changes will be announced in class and posted on my website and door. Wednesdays 10:30-2:30 and by appointment (I will take a lunch break at my discretion) Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays by request Office hours end 5/12 Email: Nancy.Eldred at sjsu.edu Note: I generally respond very quickly to email. I answer over 200 emails every week. Try to keep the emails short, specific and grammatically correct. My Web Site: The address is http://www.sjsu.edu/people/Nancy.Eldred Course Description and Prerequisites “Integrative survey of current viewpoints and issues in psychology, how they developed and likely future directions in psychology.” Prerequisites: Psychology Core (Psyc 1, 18 or 120, 30, Stat 95), Psyc 100W, Senior standing. Psyc 120 may be taken concurrently. Throughout this green sheet, you will see the names of past students who helped determine the curriculum for this semester. Not all names are noted, as many students suggested similar components. About 80% of this green sheet was developed by students. For the most part, the movies carry “PG-13” and “R” ratings. If, for personal reasons, you feel you cannot watch movies with such ratings, please take a different section of Psyc 190. Bear in mind that you are watching these movies as part of your professional development, and not for entertainment. Should you become a clinician in the future, you will quickly learn that the majority of clients do not have “G” ratings.
