AMERICAN SCIENCE SERIES-ADVANCED COURSE THE PRINCIPLES OP Psychology, the science of finite individual minds, assumes as its data (1). The Principles of Psychology. William James. This web edition published by [email protected] Last updated Wednesday, December 17, at To the. This reprinting of Principles of Psychology reproduces the complete. edition of .. The first several chapters present the elementary principles of behavior.

In addition to those in the memory unit, examples from this principle can help inform instruction throughout the course. By issuing formative assessment frequently through practice problems, activities and sample tests, instructors can help students increase their knowledge, skills and confidence.

Additionally, instructors conducting practice activities at spaced intervals distributed practice will help students achieve greater increases in long-term retrieval ability. Practice tests should include open-ended questions that require both the retrieval of existing knowledge and the challenge of applying that information to new situations or contexts, thus also incorporating principle four. See also the APA teaching module on practice for knowledge acquisition.

Feedback Clear, explanatory and timely feedback to students is important for learning. This principle highlights the importance of instructor responses and indicates the best manner in which to deliver feedback to students in order to maintain or increase motivation to learn.

Providing students with clear, explanatory and timely feedback is important for learning. Self-regulation skills, including attention, organization, self-control, planning and memory strategies, improve learning and engagement and can be taught through direct instruction, modeling and classroom organization. Teachers can model organizational methods and assist students by highlighting learning targets at the start and conclusion of lessons, using classroom calendars, highlighting difficult concepts that will require more practice, breaking large projects into manageable components, using well designed rubrics and allowing sufficient processing time through questioning, summarizing and practice.

Psychology students can apply this research to their own study habits such as learning to practice self-control by limiting the distractions presented by cell phones and social media. Students can also be encouraged to design experiments related to the limits of attention and discuss the practical implications of their results. Creativity Student creativity can be fostered. Creativity is considered a critical skill for the technology driven world of the 21st century and because it is not a stable trait, it can be taught, nurtured and increased.

This principle describes specific methods of structuring assignments to increase creativity and ideas for how to model creative problem solving.

Creativity in the psychology classroom can include opportunities for student-designed research projects, video projects, demonstrations and model building. Motivation: What motivates students?

Students who are motivated and interested in learning are more successful. CPSE has outlined the most important ways to help increase student motivation and engagement. Intrinsic motivation Students tend to enjoy learning and to do better when they are more intrinsically rather than extrinsically motivated to achieve. This principle is directed at how instructors can increase intrinsic motivation through classroom practices and activities that support the fundamental need of students to feel autonomous.

It is important to note that not everything of importance is intrinsically motivating to all students and that there is a place for extrinsic motivation in education. During the unit on motivation, when intrinsic and extrinsic motivations are typically discussed, students can examine their personal motivations and how they influence their success. Lastly, students can examine the research related to the overjustification effect, also discussed in this principle.

For more information about motivation and the over-justification effect and how they impact student performance, see the TED talk by psychologist Dan Pink. Mastery goals Students persist in the face of challenging tasks and process information more deeply when they adopt mastery goals rather than performance goals.

Students who form mastery goals are focused on attaining new skills or increasing existing ability, but students who develop performance goals typically are focused simply on showing adequate ability. When students set performance goals, they have a tendency to avoid tasks that might expose weaknesses and end up missing opportunities that would foster the development of new skills. Those with mastery goals are more likely to be motivated to learn new skills and achieve higher levels of competence.

Principle 10 provides specific methods for organizing instruction that can be used to help students choose mastery over performance goals although under certain circumstances such as competitions, performance goals may be more appropriate.

Psychological research has uncovered ways for teachers to communicate high expectations for all students and avoid creating negative self-fulfilling prophecies. When discussing self-fulfilling prophecies and the Rosenthal and Jacobson study during the social psychology unit, Principle 11 can be used by teachers to show students how they can prevent negative self-fulfilling prophecies.

Goal setting Setting goals that are short term proximal , specific and moderately challenging enhances motivation more than establishing goals that are long term distal , general and overly challenging. This principle explains how students can use short-term proximal , specific and moderately challenging goals to increase self-efficacy and build toward larger goals.

20 psychological principles that will help your students learn more effectively

Students should maintain a record of progress toward their goals which is monitored by both the student and the instructor. After students experience success with moderately challenging proximal goals, they will be more likely to become intermediate risk takers, which is one of the most significant attributes present in achievement-oriented individuals.

As a result, they will be capable of achieving larger distal goals. Tips based on this principle can easily be used to create engaging class assignments for the motivation unit in the introduction to psychology curriculum.

Social and emotional dimensions: Why are social context, interpersonal relationships and emotional well-being important to student learning? These principles reflect the importance of relationships, culture, community and well-being on learning.

They focus on how instructors can help students by fostering healthy relationships with them and an interest in their lives outside the classroom. Social contexts Learning is situated within multiple social contexts. Principle 13 emphasizes how the various communities students belong to e.

This principle is related specifically to many concepts from social psychology e. Introductory psychology classes can incorporate opportunities for students to engage with the larger community through service-learning projects, guest speakers and psychology clubs. Interpersonal relationships Interpersonal relationships and communication are critical to both the teaching-learning process and the social development of students.

This principle provides detailed and specific guidelines for improving both teacher-student and student-peer relationships in the classroom.

Well-being Emotional well-being influences educational performance, learning, and development. Various components of emotional well-being can be included across many psychology units, such as self-concept and self-esteem social psychology , self-efficacy and locus of control motivation and personality and happiness and coping skills emotion and stress.

Context and learning: How can the classroom best be managed? The two principles related to classroom management emphasize how to develop a classroom climate that enhances learning. Classroom conduct Expectations for classroom conduct and social interaction are learned and can be taught using proven principles of behavior and effective classroom instruction.

Numerous research-based ideas are presented for both correcting inappropriate student behaviors and for establishing appropriate replacement behaviors at both the classroom and school-wide levels.

A more current edition would be helpful in the next couple of years. Clarity rating: 5 The book's clarity is strong and well-designed.

It is very reader-friendly and easy to navigate. The structure of each section lends itself to a good dialogue of the material.

The opening story of each chapter is an excellent way to engage students in the material in a very practical sense. Consistency rating: 5 This book is very consistent in the presentation of terms, concepts, theories, frameworks for understanding, etc.

It follows a nice pattern that is duplicated throughout each chapter for ease of read, and for instructors to best utilize this book in their courses. Modularity rating: 5 I enjoyed the chapters being broken down into different, distinct sections. While I assigned the entire chapter as reading, I planned my activities and assignments to include a graded item from each of the sections. By doing this I knew students were engaged in each of the sections, and for my planning as a professor, it worked very well.

The addition of videos, and a substantive explanation of these videos, was also very helpful.The opening story of each chapter is an excellent way to engage students in the material in a very practical sense. The analysis of data collected through formative assessment allows the instructor to differentiate instruction and provide appropriate individualized support.

I feel like this consistency is something students will like. Such peculiarities seem quite fantastic; and might, for aught we can see a priori, be the precise opposites of what they are. The text, therefore, is clear, and what profs call in the area an easy read. Below is a review of the principles and potential applications for their use in teaching high school psychology.
