Psychology: The Science Behind our Thoughts and Behaviors
My students need a variety of hands-on materials that represent psychology concepts and supplies to make posters and publish psychology research projects.
The only source of knowledge is experience. - Albert Einstein. Psychology, the scientific study of behavior and thought, is fascinating to students. I would like to provide my high schoolers with hands-on lessons that peek their interest and provide solid instruction
My students come from diverse backgrounds and attend school in a moderate poverty area.
They are curious, interested in learning that helps them understand their teenage years and can be applied to their own lives. My students are ready to learn psychology, and need additional materials to make our instruction more engaging.
The resources I'm requesting are useful props and hands-on materials to make the concepts I teach more tangible and realistic. Each item (except for a few teacher materials and supplies to make reports with) will be on display for a certain lesson. They will passed around to all students during instruction and modeled with. Later, these items will become the subject/topic for a small group research report. For example, a sensory stress relief ball becomes an item to attach lesson content on stress management and the brain. A child's toy becomes a symbol for developmental milestones and psychological concepts childhood links to. And a book on optical illusions can be useful for the study of sensation and perception of how the human mind processes sensory stimulation. A plush neuron (brain cell) doll and brain model become a symbol of our complex brain chemistry and the operations behind each brain structure.
All knowledge is connected to all other knowledge.
The fun is in making the connections.-ÃÂ Aufderheide might agree that psychology becomes less abstract of a science and more in reach to students with these wonderful classroom materials. Help my students learn complex psychological themes and concepts by donating to our classroom. After all, learning is only difficult if we don't provide our students with the right tools. And in psychology, we can get kids to be curious then the rest i
