Intro to Psychology

This year we are offering an Introduction to Psychology elective. This course is offering the traditional course material but also helping students with metacognition and self-awareness.

Dr Popper says “ In Introduction to Psychology class we started the year with a focus on consciousness and how it may manifest in different life forms.” Ask your student which animals have passed the mirror test! Students also began our study of neurons and the nervous system. Check out these awesome creations from our in-class design challenge!

Students were asked to “use things you have lying around the house to craft a neuron,” including its main parts: dendrites, soma (cell body), axon, myelin sheath, and axon terminal. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with such smart, curious, and creative students.
