Quote"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't." - Erica Jong

Learning Targets:
★ People dream during REM sleep.
★ Sleep is not easy for everyone. There are a variety of sleep disorders that are important to understand.
★ The stages of sleep.
★ Impact of drugs on consciousness.


Essential Questions:
● Explain Levels of consciousness. Compare the different levels of consciousness.
● Why do we Sleep and dream?
● Be able to examine and differentiate between different types of sleep disorders
● Define, differentiate and compare the different types of Psychoactive drugs - Depressants, Narcotics, Stimulants, Hallucinogens

Agenda:
1. Do Now - How do drugs impact consciousness? (Psychoactive, Depressants, Stimulants, Hallucinogens)
2. Notes, Discussion, Video: Sleep. Cycles, Disorders, Impact.
Why do we sleep?
Sleep cycles: 5 stages 1, 2, 3&4, and REM. (not in that order necessarily)
Impact of sleep deprivation, sleep disorders.
3. VIDEOThe Story of Peter TrippDisc Jokey be "Trippin'" - What impact did going 8 days and nights w/o sleep have on him?

Quote"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." - Jimi Hendrix

Learning Targets:
1. Learning refers to a relatively permanent change in behavior based on experience.
2. Classical conditioning involves the pairing of one stimulus with another, so that eventually the first neutral stimulus will evoke a reflex.
3. Classical conditioning is associated with Pavlov and WatsonOperant conditioning is associated with Skinner.
4. According to Operant Conditioning, the consequences of a behavior influence whether or not the behavior will be performed again.
5. Reinforcements are used to increase the likelihood a behavior will be repeated
6. Punishments are used to decrease the likelihood a behavior will be repeated.


Essential Questions:

Compare Classical Conditioning and Operant Conditioning.
What is the difference between a reinforcement and punishment?
How do positive and negative types of reinforcement and punishment differ from one another?


Agenda:
1. DO NOW: How do people in psychology look at 'learning' - what do they mean by the term?
2. Notes, Discussion, Video: Classical Conditioning.
Pavlov to Watson to Skinner.
Baby Albert

3. Notes, Discussion, Video: Operant Conditioning.
