The main focus of this secondary-level psychology course is that of enhancing student interest in and understanding of psychological concepts, principles, and hypotheses through exploration of their relationship to current and arresting topics and problems, including problems of individual development and interpersonal relations. The curriculum guide begins with a prerequisite introductory unit. Specific units following the introduction include (1) perception, (2) motivation, (3) learning, (4) thinking, (5) developmental aspects, (6) personality, and (7) social influences. Within each of the major unit topics are several subtopics. The course revolves around a module system of instruction covering one or several lessons. Each module contains the central principle, key terms, instructional objectives, activities, normal-abnormal continuum, evaluation exercises, and references. A bibliography concludes the guide which lists the books referred to in the lessons and activities. (Author/JR)
