Psychology Videos: The New Era of Positive Psychology

INSTRUCTIONS:

Overview
You are a high school psychology teacher and you are preparing for a class in which you will show two videos. The first is a program on “The Secret,” which claims to help people attain their goals through positive thinking. The second is a talk by Dr. Martin Seligman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, who claims that pleasure, engagement and meaning can increase people’s happiness. Both videos make scientific claims, but how can your students know which are sound? It is up to you to show them how!
Directions
Prepare a handout for your students that summarizes and evaluates the two videos.
Begin by watching both videos. Then, summarize each in writing, making sure to point out the main ideas and key points of each.
Next, compare the two videos in terms of the scientific claims they make. State which video is more scientifically sound and briefly explain in your own words how you can tell. Be sure to provide specific examples from the videos of correct and faulty scientific claims.
