Name of Course – Psychology

Learning Facilitator: Caroline

Course Description: This course will act as a hands-on, experiment and discussion based introduction to basic psychology.

How do people and/or animals act when they have been rewarded or punished? How is this used in our own school and community to influence behavior? Students will evaluate the role of psychology in their own patterns of behavior and learn how to be more critical consumers of material goods and information.
