    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I feel that given the nature of the content, the teacher understands how to make the class and it's lectures interesting to everyone. She knows how to implement all learning styles, and in my experience it's effective. I have never been good at science or anatomy, and I almost always have a hard time paying attention in lectures, but in this class I find myself happy to take notes and learn. Psychology can relate to everyone because it is an important aspect to everyday life, which is what I think can make it interesting to any student. Psychology is also an important aspect to many different careers outside of typical psychiatrists or counselors, and I would recommend taking this if you are in need of social science credits.

    Course highlights:

    It's hard to choose a favorite topic of the course because I find almost all of it interesting. I am still currently taking the course and am less than halfway through, but so far we've learned the different parts of the brain /what their functions are, different psychological theories, different research methods of psychologists, famous experiments, and how the brain develops from childhood to adulthood. It is fascinating to me to see real life examples of psychology, such as the case of Phineas Gage, who had his brain impaled by a pole, or B.F. Skinner's rat box. It is also interesting when we learn something and can apply it to our own lives, like comparing our parents learning style to the different types and seeing if we ended up how the predicted outcomes said we would. In all, we have already covered a lot of material, and I am excited to see what is next.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The teacher uses powerpoint presentations for her lectures. Even though she will provide access to the powerpoints online, I think it is still more effective to take handwritten notes, because you learn better as you turn a topic over in your head. This makes it easier to pay attention to lectures and you will do better on tests. And of course, study early for exams, because there are a lot of topics covered!
