Intro to psychology is a joy to teach. The course content is intentionally designed to support student engagement and academic growth. I have gotten to know my students' and seen them go from zoom shy to bold and courageous participants. This course proves that online courses can be both rigorous and fun.
The goal of this course is to explore the mystery of what makes us tick - do we control our mind or does our mind control us? Can we trust what we remember? What is love? The course explores these and other questions of the mind. This is an interdisciplinary course, integrating Psychology with English Language Arts through a focus on discussion, reading, and expository writing.
