PSY K111 General Psychology I

Spring 04 (Wednesday evening section)

What we will do this semester:

We will examine psychology as a natural science. Thus, we will practice forming opinions based on reason and defending those opinions using evidence (aka critical thinking). In particular, we will consider why psychologists believe certain theories. We will also critically examine various explanations given for why we do what we do.

Specifically, we will look at psychological theories of sensation, perception, learning, memory, thinking, motivation, and development. In many cases we will compare our commonsense notions of what makes us tick with the scientific findings of psychologists.

We will improve our writing and reading skills.

We will have fun.

Consider the following:
