This project has been an incredible experience for me in many ways.First and foremost, working on this unit plan has exposed me to thefield of positive psychology, giving me a new perspective not only onthe teaching of psychology as a whole, but in my own life. The field’spursuit of the scientific basis of optimal experiences and humanpotential have given me hope that psychology of the future willnot only focus on curing the ills of humanity, but also on maximizingthe strengths of humanity. I became a teacher to make a positivedifference in the lives of my students, and through applying positivepsychology, all teachers can find strategies to meet such a lofty goal.The members of the Positive Psychology Teaching Task Force—Martin E. P. Seligman, Randal M. Ernst, Charles L. Brewer,Charles T. Blair-Broeker, C. R. Snyder, Karen Anderson,David G. Myers, and Laura King—have been instrumental in helpinggather the information for this unit and in providing feedback duringthe writing and editing process. I want to thank Marty Seligman andRandy Ernst for their faith and trust in me to accomplish thismonumental goal. I also owe a debt of gratitude to Charles Brewer forhis insightful and “divine” hand in the editing process. I would also liketo thank Rick Snyder for his incredible help in providing information andfeedback on the content of the unit. Thanks also to Dave Myers whowas helpful in providing permission to use his work and in guiding meduring the process of seeking permission from publishers.Many others outside the task force have been helpful in providingfeedback, resources, and permission to this project: Ed Diener, for hiswork on subjective well-being, the Satisfaction With Life Scale, andDaily Mood Form; Martin Bolt and Worth Publishers, for Dr. Bolt’sactivity descriptions and permission to use them in this unit; andMihaly Csikszentmihalyi, for his permission to use his work on flow.Most importantly, I would like to thank my husband Ben Fineburg forhis constant nurturing and support in both my personal and professionallives. His constant belief and encouragement in me and of me havehelped me develop into the person I am today. I have faith thathe will have the same positive influence on our son, Micah Samuel,as he grows and matures.It is my hope that teaching positive psychology will bring a newperspective to the teaching of psychology as a whole.
