Day 5- Jan 25/28

Today we discussed the steps of the scientific method and worked on Parts 2-4 of your paper. The paper will be due Feb 7/8 and it needs to be at least two pages long. Please read the instructions on the paper carefully- it will answer a lot of your questions.

I also gave you the instructions for your next project! You will be conducting your own scientific research on a human behavior. The instructions on the project are under the Unit 1 tab to the right. If you have questions, come talk to me or send me an email!

Day Three

Here is the PowerPoint for Day #3. The notes for that day are listed under the Unit 1 tab to the right.

Day 3

A few reminders:

If you did NOT turn in Part One of your "Why I'm Taking Psychology" paper, bring it next class. I will start deducting points after next time.

The Unit 1 Plan is slightly mixed up- all the homework (reading in the textbook) needs to be pushed up a day. So please read pg. 18-21 for next class (NOT pg. 4-11).

Please remember to bring back your signed Parent Permission Form next class!
