Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook
  • Lessons
  • Minimum of 3 outside scholarly sources

Create a “yearbook” presentation of psychological concepts and theories throughout history, past and present findings. For each course outcome, choose at least one time period to research about the significant findings that happened during the time. For example, for Course Outcome #1, you could choose to research the 1900s and the work of Sigmund Freud and the early 2000s for more recent research findings related to psychodynamic therapy and defense mechanisms. Include information about the major figure or figures of the time, where applicable. Make clear connections to key concepts and theories related to each course outcome using scholarly sources and relevant images.

Following is a list of the 7 course outcomes you will need to address in your presentation.

Course Outcomes

  1. Assess theoretical perspectives related to human behavior, including physiological explanations for changes in behavior.
  2. Analyze the processes of sensation and perception, and the factors that affect consciousness.
