Intro to Psychology - Misti Angelo

 Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective – Grades 9-12 – Mistie Angelo
Why should your child take Psychology? Psychology is a Social Science, and Social Science
courses help create the well-rounded transcript colleges seek. Many college majors require
Psychology, and it is good to have a Christian foundation in psychology particularly before
experiencing it at a college (perhaps secular) level. The curriculum for this class was written
by Vicki Tillman MA (a homeschooling mom and practicing licensed professional
counselor). This fun and no-busywork text from a Christian worldview helps students to
appreciate God’s handiwork and also be prepared for career or college settings.
This is a .5 credit, average high school level one semester course.
