Class Experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Social psychology is the scientific study of the way individuals think, feel, and behave in social situations. Social psychologists seek to answer many questions that are relevant to our everyday lives. 
These questions include such topics as:
How are we influenced by our environment and by other people? How do we come to know ourselves? How do we form impressions of the people we meet? How do we explain others’ behavior? What causes relationships to begin or to fail? 
Why are people sometimes helpful, but at other times aggressive or even cruel? 
What are attitudes and how do they affect us? 
What leads to conformity and obedience? 
How do group processes affect us?
I have worked with middle school, high school and college students as a teacher and Director of Education and I spent over 10 years doing mental health counseling with children, adolescents and young adults. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Master's in Mental Health Counseling and have all but dissertation for a PhD in Educational Psychology with coursework completed in clinical psychology, as well. 
Homework Offered

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is discussion at one point about Milgram's shock study of obedience as well as the bystander effect in the lack of helping in the Kitty Genovese case. I make sure to let students know that if any part of those discussions make them uncomfortable to let me know and I will make sure that I provide them with an alternative activity or example. I will also let their parents know. I do not go into any graphic details because of the age of the group and it is not necessary to go into details to show the concepts of diffusion of responsibility, obedience and the bystander effect. 
No additional sources will be required. The instructor will be creating the hand-outs, powerpoints and pre-recorded videos.
