    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If one is truly interested in the human mind, this course is the way to go. Unfortunately, Ms. Foster is no longet teaching AP Psychology, but Mrs. Williams is an excellent teacher. It is a very hands-on course and really involves the student, making it much more interesting than a typical AP class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from taking AP Psychology. The highlight of the course (in my opinion) was learning about the different types of stages and life and learning at those different stages. For example, young children (typically ages 0-4) are able to learn through observational learning. In other words, they copy what they see. This can either be beneficial or detrimental to the child. Facts like this help break down the world and the minds of others and helps us to really understand certain "behind-the-scenes" factors as to why people and groups are the way that they are.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, a student definitely needs organizational skills. This should be known since middle school, but in AP Psychology is where organization really matters. Also, lots and lots of paper and notecards! Memorization is a key factor in passing the class, and the best way to memorize is through the use of notecards & actually reading the chapters assigned.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Psychology is the study of the science behind human thought and action. It's important for people to first understand themselves, in order to better understand others. This field of study inadvertently enlarges individual perspective and welcome individuality. If people were educated about the science behind behavior, I truly think issues like prejudice or racism would be better handled, if not solvable.

    Course highlights:

    I discovered that I learn best when asking questions and engaging in discussion. One of the most memorable moments of clarity yet absolute confusion was when I learned about perception; perception is how individual people receive information and make sense of it. My instructor told our class that perception was shaped through personal experience. However I hypothesized that perception could be based on biology; there are twins, who despite different upbringing and experiences, still will lead similar lives and make similar decisions. This then made me ponder philosophically about the belief of determinism and fatalism. How could their perception be similar unless they were born with that state of mind? The interweaving of two fields of academia was exciting yet added to my perplexity. My moment of confusion was when I realized that there were so many angles of argument one could have and all would seem correct. Though my moment of clarity came when I learned I loved psychology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The more questions asked, the more questions answered, which will then prompt more questions. It's a feedback loop between the student and the teacher and will exercise intellectual curiosity. Through my study, I found flashcards worked best to help understand new concepts, and cumulate good study habits.
