    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prior to taking this course, I thought that it would be nonstop lectures about the brain, but this class turned out to be an enjoyable experience. Mr. Machado does a fantastic job at making sure students get an understanding the material for the AP Exam, while treating his students like adults. I've grown to learn so much about psychology; I sometimes look at things in my everyday life from a psychological point of view and think "wow I do this because I've been conditioned".

    Course highlights:

    I don't think it really matters if you want to go to the Psychology field or not, you end up learning a lot. I was unsure about whether I wanted to pursue a career in Psychology prior to taking this class, but now I know I want to explore Psychology a bit more in college. I've learned how babies have natural reflexes, also known as instincts, in the early stages of their life. Through the developmental unit of Psych I learned how humans progress from being a zygote at 2 weeks to identifying their place in the world, whether that is through gender, sexuality or community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Of course all Advanced Placement courses require a lot of diligence. If you don't read the textbook and follow the reading you will get lost. Vocabulary may seem like a waste of time and an easy homework grade that'll boost your grade when you're not doing too great, but it's actually very important in the end. When the AP Exam comes the free response questions require you to use majority of the vocab that is learned throughout the course. I find that making flashcards and outlines are very helpful when studying. Don't think you can come into this class and get an easy A, because getting an A in the class doesn't mean you'll get a 3,4 or 5 on the exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely interesting. It was like a puzzle, putting things together and making you realize why humans do the things that we do or think the way we do.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part about this class was the projects. Most of the time they weren't boring bits of information that you just throw together for a grade. They were personalized, making you relate to the topic and helping you learn more. The teacher I had was also amazing. She's one that you can tell actually likes and cares about her students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text book. Even though it's boring a lot of material from the test is in random paragraphs that you wouldn't think are important while you're skimming through.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was Interesting to view the way the mind works and see how much or little your genetic make up has on the stuff you do.

    Course highlights:

    Behavioral Unit where I was able to learn about how rewards and punishments are used both negatively and positively by care givers. I was also able to see what types of rewards guided behavior both positively and negatively.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is an incredible class and very good for understanding the people around you. You have to be ready to do a lot of memorization and read a lot from the text.
