Costin, Frank; And Others
The syllabus contains detailed information concerning an introductory college course in psychology. The primary objectives are to help the student acquire basic knowledge of vocabulary, concepts, methods and theories used by psychologists, and skills in interpreting psychological knowledge and applying it to daily life, everyday problems, and social issues. The study guide presents instructional activities such as videotape presentations, self-study topics, supplementary readings, and a description of the psychological investigations which are to be undertaken outside of class time as a regular part of the required course work. The course is divided into eight units on the Nature of Psychology, Learning and Memory, Thinking, Motivation and Emotion, Intelligence, Personality and Adjustment, Behavior Disorders, and Social Interaction. Appendices include references for further study, suggested supplementary readings, and sample test items. (Author/DDB)
