PsychInquiry is a great psychology website for high school teachers. It is a website that compliments the 5th edition Psychology textbook authored by Peter Gray. The organization of the website is quite simple. There are 17 chapters. Each chapter has a list of activities and quizzes.
High school teachers can incorporate some of the activities into a unit. The quiz questions also can be selected for their own assessments.
For the following activity, I have created questions for the students to answer. The directions and questions are shared in google.docs. At the end of the period, I view each student’s google.docs. The assessment is more of an effort grade than anything. The material also will be on a test.
The activities are well organized and interesting. The students seem to enjoy them, so there are very few problems with student focus.
Below is the information I shared with my students in a google.doc.
Today you are going to complete some on-line activities. Create a google.doc to answer the questions. (Once you open the document, go to file and select make a copy. This will allow you to edit the new document that you now own.)
This material will be on the test, so be sure to TAKE YOUR TIME and read carefully.
