Featured Class: Influential Cases in Social Psychology

What would you do if you thought no one was watching? Would you behave differently with a group of friends? What if you were among strangers?

The answers to these questions may surprise you! This is a glimpse into the field of Social Psychology where students will be introduced to thoughts on social interaction and human nature. The class will examine and analyze four influential cases that have shaped the way we understand social psychology today. Students will read and discuss landmark studies conducted by renowned psychologists and participate in thought-provoking and intellectually stimulating “what if” discussions and role playing. Students will learn how to read research, evaluate theories, and think critically about social phenomena.

This new class will be taught by Natalie di Vietri, a Compass instructor with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. This class is an introduction for teens to explore their interest in taking the AP Psychology class that will be offered at Compass in 2018-2019!
