Description

Class Experience

When I took my first psychology course in University I was hooked on the topic! I couldn't believe it had taken me so long to learn about my brain! The program I was in would not allow for a minor, but that did not stop me from taking every psychology course I could fit in my schedule! The more I studied psychology the stronger the feeling grew that it was a topic that should be learned early in life. If I could improve my own mind and memory so much as a late teen/ young adult, imagine how much impact a psychology course could have on a child's learning? Imagine how much it could change the life of someone who is neurodivergent if they could understand brain plasticity and adaptability? Psychology is a passion for me, that is why I am offering this course, and that is why I hope you will sign up!
There may be some short at home activities, such as brainstorming nicknames or completing worksheets. Homework will be designed to take 10-20 minutes at the most, and can be modified based on parent request. 
Please come to class with paper and a pencil as we sometimes use paper for review games. Week 3 Lesson 1: Bring some 6-8 pieces of bite sized snacks. We will use them in a game. Week 4: Make sure you have paper and a pencil for week 4. Lesson 2: Bring some lego. Any additional resources that I would like the students to prepare will be requested ahead of class time.
No formal assessment. Learner progress will be tracked by discussion and group activities. If you desire a formal assessment send me a message and one can be arranged.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In order to better understand the brain we may look at some instances of individual who have had brain damage and how they recovered. Please let me know ahead of class if this may be a trigger for your learner.
