What's Going on in Your Professor's Head? Demonstrating the Id, Ego, and Superego
Segrist, Dan J.
Teaching of Psychology, v36 n1 p51-54 Jan 2009
This article describes an in-class activity designed to demonstrate Freud's structural theory of the psyche, specifically the roles of the id, ego, and superego, as well as the interplay among them. Additionally, the activity visually illustrates Freud's ideas about the levels of consciousness associated with these 3 components. Pre-post quiz performance, evaluation data, and student comments demonstrate that students learned from and enjoyed the activity. Suggestions for modifications of this activity are also discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 3 notes.)
