Class Experience

1] Student will learn about the details of the individual study being presented in each class
2] Student will learn about the controversial issues related to the study
3] Students will gain a basic understanding of current approval process for ethical psychology research
I have a B.A. in Sociology and a M.Ed. in Community Counseling.  I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.  I have also taught Introduction to Psychology and Sociology to college freshman. I have experience in teaching and leading discussion in sensitive topics.
Pen/ Pencil and paper if learner wants to take notes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment will take place throughout the lesson by asking students if they have questions or comments throughout lessons.  There will also be opportunities to answer poll questions in the chat box.  
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The studies discussed involve people being emotionally, psychologically harmed.  If a learner is very sensitive to hearing about the pain of others, the information discussed in the class may cause them sadness.  The issues discussed are similar to what you would hear about in the news or in a TV-14 show. 

The content of the class is based on U.S. standards, similar to what you may find in a high school AP level class.  The course material wouldn't be presented in other countries however until college level.
