Psychological knowledge can be related
to everyday life
There are multiple perspectives by which
psychologists study and explain human
behavior.
Heredity and environment interact in the
development of an individual across the
lifespan.
Scientific evidence is used to explain all
findings in the field of psychology.
Intelligence is more than a score on a test.
A multi-cultural and global perspective
recognizes how diversity is important to
understanding intelligence.
Essential Question(s):
How is intelligence defined and
measured?
How did the uses and abuses of
Intelligence testing impact the lives of
people of color/other groups in our
society?
How should intelligence testing be used?
How can the results of various measures
of intelligence be applied in the real
world?
How can we define and measure
intelligence in such a way that the results
are valid and culturally fair?
How is our thinking/intelligence affected
by the information provided by our
culture and environment?
Can decision making skills be developed
to overcome poor judgment and problem
solving abilities?
