The Six Contemporary Perspectives of PsychologyWebquest

Psychology- Chapter 1

Mr. MacLaughlin


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.


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.


Step 1 (Cont’d)

  • Bio-psychological Approach

  • Behavioral Approach

  • Psychoanalytic Approach

  • Humanistic Approach

  • Cognitive Approach

  • Socio-cultural Approach


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.


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.


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.


The Approaches

  • Biological Perspective

  • Behaviorist Perspective

  • Psychoanalytic Perspective

  • Humanistic Perspective

  • Cognitive Perspective

  • Socio-cultural Perspective


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.
