Journal/Book: Teach Psychol. 2000; 27: 10 Industrial Ave, Mahwah, NJ 07430-2262, USA. Lawrence Erlbaum Assoc Inc. 111-113.
Abstract: In this activity, I provide a way to collect data on a gender difference-smiling in yearbook photos-without leaving the classroom. I also provide an effective procedure for reviewing or introducing a number of methodological concepts. Two sections of Psychology of Gender students (N = 45) rated the activity high on achievement of purpose and enjoyability, and 95% recommended using the exercise in future classes.
