Just a reminder that this week, Psychology 215 classes (Abnormal Psychology) need to submit a paragraph or two on their chosen character for the paper, what they believe the diagnosis is, and why they are diagnosing the character with this disorder. Remember, the paper will be on the disorder you are diagnosing.

Psychology 201 classes (Brain and Behavior) should begin to determine what topic they will be covering for the paper. Remember, you need to get this topic approved before you begin. If you are having trouble deciding on a topic let me know and I can help.

Finally, all classes appear to be on schedule to have the first test as scheduled on the syllabus. I will confirm within the next week or so.
