Class Experience

This class will break down some of the most famous psychological experiments into bite-sized nuggets of information that the children will be able to observe in their own environment after. The ideas will stick with the kids in a way that will provide many "Ah ha moments" in the days that follow. The first 30 minutes of the class will be teacher lecture, although the children will be encouraged to ask any questions they have along the way. In the last 15 minutes of the class, the children are encouraged to ask their own "Why" questions. 

 Examples include: Why does my dog bark when someone rings the doorbell? Why do we have to wait until after dinner to eat dessert? In preparation for the class, please encourage your child to think about their world and come up with a question for the instructor.

Dr. Weisner graduated from Georgetown University in 1999 and was awarded a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Washington, D.C. She went on to receive her Doctorate in Psychology and pursue post-doctorate education at the American Institute of Psychoanalysis in New York City. Currently, Dr. Weisner specializes in suicidal teenagers and adults with anxiety and relationship issues. 
Dr. Weisner recently released her first book, Ten Steps To Finding Happy, which had the misfortune of premiering the first week of quarantine. Dr. Weisner is also an expert blogger at Psychology Today: The Venn Diagram Life, and the host of the Neurotic Nourishment Podcast.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Although the Stanford Prison Experiment involved violence, the experiment will be examined from a social psychology perspective, in terms of people following orders, giving into peer pressure, getting caught up in the greater group dynamics, etc. Details of violence will not be addressed.
