Today I found this gem.
"How to Buy Food: The Psychology of the Supermarket" on a website I had never heard of, BonAppetit.com. I love food, but am not a foodie.
The article examines several factors that are manipulating the consumer including layout/design, the no longer accurate "perimeter rule," identity politics, hunger and more. This is potentially a great article to use for introducing kids to social psychology, persuasion techniques, Human Factors and Applied Cognition, offering your samples, and more.
