Psychology is a diverse field of scientific study and there is never enough time to cover all the issues. The key is to provide students with enough relevant and significant background for them to appreciate the topic being covered while still allowing them the mental energy to be critical thinkers. I feel that teachers should encourage their students to be thoughtful consumers of information. I encourage my students to be skeptical of simple explanations and easy answers.
