Dual Credit Psychology – 3rd Period Wednesday Fall
$30.00 – $55.00
This is a DUAL CREDIT course taught in partnership with LeTourneau University. It will be worth a 1.0 High School credit and will earn 3 college credit hours. This class meets in the Fall of 2021 only. It is a HYBRID class: 90 minutes of in-person class time on Wednesdays and a 55-minute zoom meeting on Mondays (Monday time TBA based on class needs). Dual Credit courses are designed for advanced high school students who are reading on the college level. Student maturity and ability to communicate with the instructor are also important considerations. Parents will not be permitted to contact the instructor regarding concerns and will need to coach their child on how to communicate and navigate any issues that arise. Intro to Psych is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Students will learn about fundamental theories, problems, and procedures relating to human activity, as well as biological, social, and cultural factors in development. Topics include: *neuroscience *development *gender *sensation and perception *learning *memory *thinking *motivation and emotion *stress *personality *psychological disorders and therapy *social psychology This class will also include a Christian philosophy of psychology unit demonstrating how the word of God speaks to the major issues in psychology. While all Arrow courses are taught from a Christian worldview, students will be exposed to secular and humanistic thought in this course. Students will be expected to actively participate in class discussions, projects, papers, and presentations.
This class has a 55 minute Monday zoom meeting in addition to the in-person Wednesday class.
