Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Davison keeps the class interactive by setting up group work in class, lectures, and videos. She usually begins with a lecture and ends with a film. During lecture she is interactive with the students by conducting surveys, having students discuss in groups how we relate to the material, and by asking intriguing questions. Most of the information Professor Davison teaches, students will want to learn because it does relate them or will in the future. There are also short tests, about twenty questions, that are derived from lecture so attendance is necessary. She provides study guides that are extremely helpful! Students are required to have one group powerpoint presentation at the end of the semester. The final is cumulative. There is also a career evaluation essay that has to be about six pages long. She is extremely helpful if you need help ask!
Psychology 19 is about human lifespan. I learned the developmental stages from birth until death. It is was interesting to learn how rapid our development skills grow from birth until the age of seven. I was surprised to find there was a development stage called, "Late Adolescence," which are ages eighteen to twenty-four. I was pleased by the videos she provided because I am a visual learner and the videos engrained the information we were learning in my mind. The videos helped me recall information better on tests since I had an emotional association.

Advice for students:
You must attend every course since the test questions are derived from the lectures only. The book is not necessary. Take notes and rewrite them in color. Keep all of your notes and study guide because the final is cumulative. Last but not least make friends! You will have a group presentation at the end of the semester.
