This class will compare and contrast the theories of Behaviorism, Cognitivism, and Socioculturalism. Using slides and videos, we will look at the psychological backing behind these theories (Pavlov's dogs, B.F. Skinner's rats, Bartlett's Assimilation to the Schema, Miller's magic number 7, etc.) and several applied examples. Students will then be asked to experiment with the theories to see if they work and discuss how they can apply what they've learned about their brain to consciously learn...
Students will improve their metacognition about what is happening in their brain as they learn. They will learn the differences between sensory, short-term, and long-term memory and how to move information from one type of memory to another. Students will analyze the theories they have learned to actively participate in their own learning to better remember.
I have a degree in middle and high school Social Studies teaching, which includes psychology and instructional theories. Additionally, I have been working with teenagers for four years as a youth mentor, a summer camp counselor, a tutor, and a teacher. I have researched and presented at conferences on the best instructional and learning practices and am excited to share some of what I've learned.
Learner progress will be assessed informally through class discussion.

ABOUT ME: My name is Tess Tureson. If you were to stereotype me, I would be a grandma and a nerd- a grandma because I love love love old things and dying pastimes, and a nerd because my favorite hobby is learning new things and I'm fascinated by...
