Master Teaching Experiences for Introductory Psychology.
Bartz, Wayne R., Ed.
Twenty-two classroom activities appropriate for college introductory psychology classes are presented. The activities require from one to four classroom sessions and introduce a variety of psychology concepts, including description, prediction, and control; research methodology; learning and memory; need for achievement; perception and creativity; reinforcement versus punishment; guilt; sexuality; stress; violence; and systematic desensitization of fears. Specifically, students engage in an ESP experiment, handwriting analysis, and doodling analysis. They try to fit unusually cut pieces of a puzzle together, shout reinforcing or adverse comments to fellow students, analyze personality tests, monitor television programs for violence, attempt to read lips, and experience a low-level state of altered consciousness. A handout on how to study is also provided. Each learning activity includes the amount of time required and lists materials needed. (KC)
