Hi! My name is Hope Sury and I am a sophomore middle level math education major. I chose to take this course because I needed it for core, but I also feel that it will help me to understand the students I will have in my classroom. I took a psychology class in high school, and my roommate is a psychology major, so we have discussions from time to time about her field of study. When I hear the word “psychology”, I think of people’s behaviors and why they make certain decisions. I am interested in learning about attachment theory, coping with stress, and motivation. I am interested in these topics because it will help me better understand myself and what I can do to improve my life. I am less interested in the scientific method, how to improve memory, and how to choose a therapist. I have some experience with these topics, so I am less interested in going over these topics. The question I would like to have answered by the end of the class is how to accurately use psychology in my future classroom.
