Reading Discussion: Prologue pgs. 1-5 What is the purpose of psychology? What is structuralism? What is functionalism? Why are these two early psychological principles easily dismissed today? Who are considered the fathers of modern psychology?
Vocabulary Cards Term: Structuralism Chapter & Pg #: Prologue, Pg. 3 Definition: Edward Titchener, late 1800s Titcheners goal of looking to discover the minds structure. Used introspection to help people report their feelings as they experienced various things (i.e. immediate sensations, images, etc). Example: Although unreliable, the idea of understanding the working of the mind will evolve into the field of cognitive psychology.
Vocabulary Cards Term: Functionalism Chapter & Pg #: Prologue, Pg 3 Definition: William James, late 1800s The adaptive behavior of thinking was used for human survival; therefore, it has evolved over time. Understanding consciousness will help us to consider our past, adjust to our present, and plan our future. Example: James and his student Mary Calkins will serve to introduce psychology to the educated public. This will inspire future modern psychologists such as Skinner, Watson, and Freud.

Randomness Coin Flipping Activity Does it really work? Why do we gamble? Have superstitions The Psychic Octopus? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0ZZ7sZMXQ4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0ZZ7sZMXQ4 Remember: Hindsight Bias, overconfidence, and our tendency to perceive patterns in random events often lead us to overestimate our intuition. Scientific inquiry can help us sift reality from illusion.
