Psychology: What Makes Me Unique?
This is a survey of topics related to individuality such as personality, intelligence, and character traits.
The overall topic in this course looks at the question "What makes each person unique?"

Of all of the courses I took in college, psychology was one of my favorites. I ended up with a double major in psychology and chemistry because I just couldn't decide which one I liked best! I went on to become a teacher, and have spent the past 30 years teaching at multiple levels, including kindergarten, college, and everything in between. Not only do I know my psychology (I'm almost done with my PhD), but I know kids. Many psychology topics are not appropriate for younger students. Even high school psychology is generally only offered to juniors and seniors due to the mature nature of some of the content. This course gently circumvents anything that might be disturbing or troubling to a younger learner, and encourages them to embrace their differences during a time in their life when "fitting in" is so important.
There is a packet to print before the beginning of class. It will be posted in the classroom the day before the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
