  1. The Six Contemporary Perspectives of PsychologyWebquest Psychology- Chapter 1 Mr. MacLaughlin

  2. Introduction • Psychology uses one of six contemporary perspectives to explain human behavior. • During this activity, you will explore and attempt to explain one of these six contemporary perspectives. • Additionally, you will create power point slides, and consult various psychological sites. • Before you panic and say -"but this is not a computer class!", let me reassure you that this will be as easy as creating a word document and much more fun.

  3. Step 1 • For each component, you will review information about a perspective of psychology by reading the information links included under that section. • Then, consult the text for further information about this perspective • If you haven’t yet read pp. 18-21, do so now. This will summarize the six present-day theories of psychology. • Your group number will be responsible for the corresponding theory on the next slide.

  4. Step 1 (Cont’d) • Bio-psychological Approach • Behavioral Approach • Psychoanalytic Approach • Humanistic Approach • Cognitive Approach • Socio-cultural Approach

  5. Step 2 • Your group will be asked to create a multi-media presentation for their particular theory. • Your multi-media presentation should represent your theory in the best manner possible. • Your presentation should create a slogan that captures the essence of the theory. For example, “Think before you leap.” could represent cognitive psychology. (GROUP #5 CANNOT USE THIS SLOGAN!) • The slogans can be completely original, parodies of famous sayings, or even takeoffs from commercials.

  6. Step 2 (Cont’d) • Your group needs to create at least five power point slides that will explain the perspectives. • Then, you are to choose key words for each approach. Students should display what their approach is by using words and pictures from magazines, as well.

  7. Step 3 • Each group is to have the following individuals • Two “slide coordinators” whose responsibility it is to coordinate the slides with your presentation • Two “poster coordinators” whose responsibility it is to coordinate the poster with pictures that represent your theory. Your poster and slide presentation should also include your slogan.

  8. The Approaches • Biological Perspective • Behaviorist Perspective • Psychoanalytic Perspective • Humanistic Perspective • Cognitive Perspective • Socio-cultural Perspective

  9. The Product • Your group final project should answer the question “How does the ___________ perspective explain behavior?” • An outside observer should be able to look at the elements of your presentation and be able to answer this essential question.
