Shamless Plug/AP Review

Good day,

Shameless plug that may be of benefit to your students.  First is the Educator.com site.  For a fee, one can subscribe to all the available video courses (there are many). Of course, my favorite is my own. You can find that here: http://www.educator.com/psychology/ap-psychology/schallhorn/
The entire AP Psychology course and test prep are on this course.

Free review on my YouTube Channel can be found here:

Steven Pinker gives an intro psych quiz

The terrific Harvard professor and author Steven Pinker has published in the NY Times a pop quiz
"culled from one of his Harvard courses, “Psychological Science.” Although I'm a huge fan of Pinker and love the way he's applying psychology to "real life," I don't love all of the questions.

To avoid spoiling it any more, take the quiz and post your comments below. What did you think?

Autism Awareness Day

This first part is from an earlier post in 2010.

Autism affects 1 in 100 children; 1 in 70 boys.  April is Autism Awareness Month and today, April 2 is Autism Awareness Day.  As we move in time, there are larger numbers of students who have some aspect of the disorder.
Autism Speaks.Org Site that assists families with their children who have autism.  They also provide information about autism along with links related to research, how to support, and how to become involved in the fight against autism.
Cafepress Site for Autism Awareness
The Autism Society

After posting that, I received a couple of emails that exhibited the politics that are occurring in the autism community.  Not everyone supports everyone else's agendas or tactics or approaches.  I am not a part of the community, so I remain ignorant and neutral of the issues.  To that end I will re-post the links above.

Some additional resources are listed hereL



NIH  Fact Sheet

Autism Society

Speaking of Infographics--Mental Illness

I found this one on Tumblr recently.  Yesterday's post by Rob reminded me to post this one as well.  It's not the greatest infographic, but it has some key information about mental illness that will be good for the high school teacher.  What are below are four separate images dealing with the science of mental illness.

The post was from an account called Neuromorphogenesis.  The poster has some fascinating links and photos.  As of this date, there are some cool pictures of subdural hematomas and the arachnoid layer being lifted off the brain.  The link for the post on the graphics below is here.
