I am offering this course to share my knowledge of an intriguing field. In the past, I have worked in many different aspects of the field of psychology. As such, I feel that I have a unique perspective and can share some of my past experiences to encourage a future generation to explore a wonderful field. 
A handout(s) will be provided by the teacher. The parent/guardian will be responsible for printing out the handout(s). You must have access to a PDF viewer in order to open and print the handouts. Printing the handout(s) is optional, you may also choose to download and save them rather than print. 

Lessons will be taught using PowerPoint Presentations and will also incorporate some YouTube videos. 

This course also utilizes a free online text book. Students must have internet access to read the text. The textbook can be accessed at:  https://socialsci.libretexts.org/Textbooks_and_TextMaps/Psychology/Book%3A_Introductory_Psychology_(OpenStax)/01%3A_Introduction_to_Psychology/1.1.

The comment occurs around the 4 minute, 21 second mark and the video can be previewed on the following link: https://youtu.be/hFV71QPvX2I
