Course of Study for the High School Psychology Elective. Working Copy.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This course provides support, within broad limits, to the teacher who chooses any of the following objectives: 1) familiarization of students with the enduring ideas and problems of psychology; 2) data gathering and analysis skills; and, 3) knowledge of the psychological principles in human relations. Similarly, the intent is that the course of study support a variety of instructional approaches: lecture, group discussion, inductive strategies, and role playing. It is clear that in terms of classroom activities the present working copy of the course of study is not complete. The modules are developed by relating each of several areas within psychology to topics chosen for their importance and their probable interest to students: 1) Perception, Motivation and Emotion, Learning, Thinking, Developmental Aspects, Personality, Group and Societal Influences, and Neuropsychology; to 2) Conflict, Identity, Prejudice, Human Control, and Man and Technology.
