Transcript of IB HL Psychology 1st Six Weeks Schedule--2nd period

Day 1-A 8/21
Essential Question: How satisfactory are psychology's explanations?

One Summer Something and the Possible Psychology of It--why it's the best bit?

Getting Personal with Close Encounters! http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/style/the-36-questions-an-answer-to-their-prayers.html

Pre and post test closeness on 0 (not close at all) to 10 (very close) scale before and after small talk set and interpersonal closeness set.

Plus, stare at the sun some.

See report "The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness: A Procedure and Some Preliminary Findings" from Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html

Read and mark study in the context of these questions...What do you think of psychology's scope and application, concepts/language, methodology, historical development, and links to personal knowledge? How reliable and valid do you think psychological explanations are?

IA Considerations--Replication of Any Published Psychology Study
Day Two-A 8/23
Essential Question: How satisfactory are psychology's explanations?

Thoughts about study stimulus--question sets? Possibility of causing interpersonal closeness? Dedication of academic resources for such?

Quick Conversations in Partners and as a Class about Psychological Stances
Philosophical Debates: nature/nurture, heredity/environment, free will/determinism, objective/subjective, correlational/causational, quantitative/qualitative, reductionism/complexity, etc. For each identify which side you think is best supported.

See report "The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness: A Procedure and Some Preliminary Findings" from Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html

Read and mark study in the context of these questions...1. What do you think of psychology's scope and application, 2. concepts/language, 3. methodology, 4. historical development, and 5. links to personal knowledge? 6. How reliable and valid and applicable do you think psychological explanations are?

Using psychology's technical language, identify five specific pros and five cons for the interpersonal closeness study.

If time permits and in pairs (or alone if absent), write critical commentary for psychology study in pairs. Think overall assertion for study--weak, strong, invalid, valid, unreliable, and/or reliable and sentences of support--methodological terms, report embeddings, and your commentary).
https://prezi.com/s9r4xykc7oky/psychology-methodology/

books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HMWK: Read and take notes for Course Companion pages 7-37 and 343-377 and IB Study Guide pages 1-5 and 145-159 for an open notes quiz on Day Seven.
Day Three-A 8/28
Essential Question: How satisfactory are psychology's explanations?

Review perspectives and consider posted questions via Prezi.
http://prezi.com/5ewc6ssqbrla/psychology-in-perspectives/

Do you know these terms?
https://prezi.com/s9r4xykc7oky/psychology-methodology/

What do you have to say for the debates of the psychological day?

Considering the specific interpersonal closeness study and the questions above, what do you think about psychology's scope/application, language/concepts, methods, historical development and links to personal knowledge?

In pairs (or alone if absent), write critical commentary for psychology study in pairs. Write an overall assertion for study--weak, strong, invalid, valid, unreliable, and/or reliable and then write sentences of support--methodological terms, report embeddings, and your commentary).
https://prezi.com/s9r4xykc7oky/psychology-methodology/

Maybe...In groups and with old books, recall and review perspectives--COGNITIVE, BIOLOGICAL, SOCIO-CULTURAL. From assigned perspective, claim one key study from last year to share its participant population, method, findings, strengths and weaknesses.

Any perspective preferences now because of body of studies and/or methodologies and or/evidence? http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/topic.htm

HMWK: Continue to read and take notes for Course Companion pages 7-37 and 343-377 and IB Study Guide pages 1-5 and 145-159 for an open notes quiz on Day Seven.
Day Four-A 8/30
Essential Question: How valid, reliable, and ethical are psychology's methods?

In the context of the interpersonal closeness study, research internal assessment study possibilities and list five that you like.

Review cognitive, biological, and socio-cultural perspectives as per your chosen studies' participant populations, methodological choices, certain/uncertain conclusions, and ethical underpinnings i.e. share your chosen study and found details.

Which perspective's populations and methodologies best explain human behavior and thinking? and other questions discussion.

Methods/Methodology http://prezi.com/s9r4xykc7oky/psychology-methodology/

Qualitative versus Quantitative as per David Reimer case study and...

Interviews, Structured Interviews (schedule, questions, order), Unstructured Interviews (topics and time), Semi-structured Interviews (questions, informal, and flexible), Focus Group Interview (6 to 10 people), Narrative Interview (story like)

Representational Generalization (applied to outside populations), Inferential Generalization/Transferability (applied to outside settings), Theoretical Generalization (develop further theory)

Purposive Sampling, Snowball Sampling, etc.

Which method offers us greatest certainty? Which methodological features most compromise psychological certainty?

How about credibility/trustworthiness?

Triangulation? by method? by data? by researcher? by theory?

Reflexivity? Disclosure of research information and his or her relation to topic or participants
