Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a collection of lesson plans for teaching psychology. There are a range of topics covered such as psychological disorders, suicide, psychological assessments, and operant/classical conditioning. Highlights of the collection include a series of podcasts that can be integrated into many topics in a psychology course, an introductory lesson on common disorders and their treatments, and a lesson on suicide prevention in which students learn about myths, statistics, and how to talk about suicide. The lessons are mostly geared towards high school aged-students, and would be valuable in health or elective psychology courses.
