Social Studies: Introduction to Psychology.
Ladwig, Richard; McConnell, Spero
This course of study was written as a part of a total effort to revise curriculum to fit the quinmester (5, 9-week periods) administrative organization of Dade County Schools. The major intent of this publication is to provide a broad framework of goals and objectives, content, teaching strategies, class activities, and materials all related to the described course of study: psychology. The course is described as a survey of Psychology from pre-history to present day, a comparison with other methods of finding reasons for man's behavior, and in examination of the spectrum of psychological methods and fields currently in existence. The guide is divided into a broad goals section, a content outline, objectives and learning activities, and materials. Some of the goals are the ability to differentiate between science and pseudo-science to explain how psychological techniques may be applied to solving problems of every-day life. The four units, one for each broad goal, are outlined in columns which indicate specific topics, behavioral objectives, learning activities, and references to materials. Appended are an outline of contemporary fields of psychology, suggested grading techniques, and recommended and suggested resources. Related documents are: SO 002 708 through SO 002 718, and SO 002 768 through SO 002 792. (Author/DJB)
