Ritchey, Kristin A.; Bott, Jennifer P.
Teaching of Psychology, v37 n4 p262-266 2010
We describe a method for helping introductory psychology students identify interdisciplinary connections among 5 social science disciplines. Pre- and posttest data assessed 359 undergraduates' understanding of psychology's relation to other fields. Results indicate the method is effective and provides one way for individual instructors to address interdisciplinary themes in their courses. (Contains 1 table.)
