The Ten Most Revealing Psych Experiments Psychology is the study of the human mind and mental processes in relation to human behaviors - human nature. Due to its subject matter, psychology is not considered a 'hard' science, even though psychologists do experiment and publish their findings in respected journals. Some of the experiments psychologists have conducted over the years reveal things about the way we humans think and behave that we might not want to embrace, but which can at least help keep us humble. That's something. 1. The Robbers Cave Experiment is a classic social psychology experiment conducted with two groups of 11-year old boys at a state park in Oklahoma, and demonstrates just how easily an exclusive group identity is adopted and how quickly the group can degenerate into prejudice and antagonism toward outsiders. Researcher Muzafer Sherif actually conducted a series of 3 experiments. 2. The prisoners rebelled on the second day, and the reaction of the guards was swift and brutal. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

French TV contestants made to inflict 'torture' A French TV documentary features people in a spoof game show administering what they are told are near lethal electric shocks to rival contestants. Those taking part are told to pull levers to inflict shocks - increasing in voltage - upon their opponents. Although unaware that the contestants were actors and there was no electrical current, 82% of participants in the Game of Death agreed to pull the lever. Programme makers say they wanted to expose the dangers of reality TV shows. They say the documentary shows how many participants in the setting of a TV show will agree to act against their own principles or moral codes when ordered to do something extreme. The Game of Death has all the trappings of a traditional TV quiz show, with a roaring crowd chanting "punishment" and a glamorous hostess urging the players on. Christophe Nick, the maker of the documentary, said they were "amazed" that so many participants obeyed the sadistic orders of the game show presenter. Yale experiment
5 of the Best Places to Find Historical Photographs A couple years ago, Larry Ferlazzo shared a hefty collection of ideas for how teachers can use photos in the classroom. Since then, I’ve been regularly incorporating a number of his activities into my writing lessons. I won’t bother to rehash all of Larry’s ideas here, but I do want to share a few of the websites where I find cool, and often strange, historical photos. Retronaut is hands down one of my all-time favorite websites. Jones Photo Historical Collection houses four generations of the family-owned photographs. Shorpy features thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s. Critical Past is home to more than 57,000 historic clips and 7 million stills. Library of Congress is another place where you’ll find a nice collection of historical photographs.

Dipsticks: Efficient Ways to Check for Understanding What strategy can double student learning gains? According to 250 empirical studies, the answer is formative assessment, defined by Bill Younglove as "the frequent, interactive checking of student progress and understanding in order to identify learning needs and adjust teaching appropriately." Unlike summative assessment, which evaluates student learning according to a benchmark, formative assessment monitors student understanding so that kids are always aware of their academic strengths and learning gaps. Meanwhile, teachers can improve the effectiveness of their instruction, re-teaching if necessary. "When the cook tastes the soup," writes Robert E. Stake, "that's formative; when the guests taste the soup, that's summative." Alternative formative assessment (AFA) strategies can be as simple (and important) as checking the oil in your car -- hence the name "dipsticks." In the sections below, we'll discuss things to consider when implementing AFAs. 53 Ways to Check for Understanding

Interview: Frances Jensen On The Teenage Brain Research into how the human brain develops helps explain why teens have trouble controlling impulses. Leigh Wells/Ikon Images/Corbis hide caption toggle caption Leigh Wells/Ikon Images/Corbis Research into how the human brain develops helps explain why teens have trouble controlling impulses. Teens can't control impulses and make rapid, smart decisions like adults can — but why? Research into how the human brain develops helps explain. "Teenagers are not as readily able to access their frontal lobe to say, 'Oh, I better not do this,' " Dr. Jensen, who's a neuroscientist and was a single mother of two boys who are now in their 20s, wrote The Teenage Brain to explore the science of how the brain grows — and why teenagers can be especially impulsive, moody and not very good at responsible decision-making. "We have a natural insulation ... called myelin," she says. This insulation process starts in the back of the brain and heads toward the front. Interview Highlights Dr. Dr.
