Psychology 220- Developmental Psychology Tues/Thurs 9:30-10:45am Week #1 1/19 Syllabus Day Today the class met for the first time and our teacher Cheryl Bryan went over the syllabus with us, noting exam dates are subject to change. If any changes are made I will update you as well. Exams are as follows: Exam 1- February 9 th Covers chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4 th Exam 2- March 8 Covers chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8 Exam 3- April 12 th Covers chapters 9, 10, 11, and 12 Exam 4- (FINAL) date to be announced Covers chapters 13, 14, 15, and 16 *Exams are worth 150 points this semester and only 2 of the first 3 exams will be scored plus the score of the final exam. The assigned textbook for this class is Berger, K. S. (2014). The Developing  Person Through Childhood and Adolescence, 10th Edition. NY: Worth Publishers. There are extra credit opportunities given by Mrs. Bryan (I am unaware if other psych 220 professors are offering the same opportunities) and the following is going to be copied and pasted directly from the syllabus so I don’t leave any important information out. All bonus credit is due no later than 11:59 PM on Friday, May 6 to receive credit.  Bonus Credit Option 1: Research Participation. You may participate in studies being  run in the psychology department. Different studies are worth different numbers of bonus points, depending on how long the study is and how involved it is. You may gain a total  of 5 bonus points from participating in research studies.  You will be sent an e­mail from giving you sign­on instructions for the Psychology Research  website. Bonus Credit Option 2: Research Paper. This paper will familiarize you with using  professional journals in exploring the field of developmental psychology.  The research  paper is worth up to 5 bonus credit points. All research papers must be submitted by the  last day of class to receive credit.  For each paper, you must first find a topic within the  field of developmental psychology that interests you and for which you can find five (5)  peer­reviewed journal articles. Each article should present original research data (not just  a discussion, opinion, review, or theoretical paper), and all articles should directly relate  to the topic you have chosen. When writing the paper, you should employ the following  format: 1) Introduction: State the topic you chose and why you were interested in it. 2) Research: Summarize in your own words the findings of each of the studies that you  read. What is the purpose of each study? What was learned in each study? Be sure to go  beyond what is contained in the abstract alone (i.e., don’t just review the abstracts). 3) Evaluation: In discussing each study, give your own evaluation. How good was each  study? Why? Do you agree with the conclusions drawn by the authors? Why or why not?  Could the findings be explained in another way? 4) Summary: After presenting the individual studies, tie them together. What do they  have in common? Do their findings fit together in any way? What have you learned about the topic you chose? Each paper must be typewritten and must not exceed 7 double­spaced pages.  Include a title page with your name and UNM ID (100...). Also, make a photocopy of the abstract (summary paragraph at the beginning) for each article and include  these copies with your paper.  Quick note from myself: I am brand new to this whole paid note taking thing and very excited to be providing a little extra help for some of my fellow students this semester. I consider myself to be a systematic and detail oriented note taker so I hope you benefit from what I have to offer! Good luck with all of your classes this semester fellow students! 1/21 Video: Odyssey of Life Today in class we watched a Nova video called the Odyssey of Life; The Ultimate Journey. I tried very hard to find it online for free but was not successful so the best I can offer is a picture of the cover (even Mrs. Bryan only had it on VHS). It is 186 minutes long and took the entire class time to watch. It was very interesting especially the part that showed how human embryos have a tail and gills at certain points in development. Next week we are diving into Chapter 1: Introduction (The Study of Human Development) and Chapter 2: Theories of Development so stay tuned!
