    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Psychology is such a fun class! You learn a lot the mind, and different theories that prove our way of learning, being motivated, feeling. It is all so interesting!

    Course highlights:

    So far, I have learned so much about the brain, and our emotions. My favorite unit was the unit of Motivation and Emotion. We learned about the theories of why we feel the way we feel, how to fix our stress issue, etc. Fun fact/sneak peak of AP Psych, there are six facial expressions that are recognizable around the world! Curious? Watch Inside Out!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't stress! it isn't the easiest course you take, because it is AP but if you study and read your textbook, everything will go smoothly. There are several Quizlets for each unit that can help you study, too.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is fantastic because it is academically rigorous, and incredibly intriguing. It is engaging and applicable to life. Humans are innately curious, and learning about ourselves seems to be highly rewarding. We do not always consider why we do what we do, but once we find that there are explanations for certain actions, the questions about our motives seem to be endless.

    Course highlights:

    As a relatively introverted person, an observer some might say, this course taught me a lot about people and explained many phenomenons I had encountered in my own life. It was through this class I realized the power and benefit of diversity. Each individual has their own opinion, their own views, but these views are not random, they originate somewhere. Understanding why people believe what they do is key to being a well-rounded individual. This course taught me to look closer at the individuals who surrounded me, and to understand them before I judged them. There is ease in judgement, but there is prosperity in understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind about what you are studying. Yes, the course is rigorous. Yes, there are tons of vocabulary words you must know. Yes, the curriculum is highly structured, but it is important to open your mind and explore beyond what the text book gives you. Try to explore the deeper meaning of what you are learning. Apply the course to your life, and your curiosity will drive you to do well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for those who are interested on how people think, react and judge certain situations. This course analyzes a range of things on a selection of 13 units. The best portion of this course was the ability to make connections to the present and situations happening day to day that we were once not aware of. The conscious and unconscious is very powerful, the things the brain is capable is extreme which makes Psychology such an interesting course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about abnormal psychology. This is the study of disorders from common to least common. I then ventured further into extensive research about the abnormal disorder schizophrenia affecting only 1.1% of the population. Abnormal Psychology also studies the diagnosis of disorders. Some disorders have no cure but are able to use therapy. Another highlight of the course was the final project in which we could choose something we wish to extend in research. I chose attraction. The ability to develop relationships is impeccable. I learned that attraction is defied by three main things, proximity, similarity and physical attractiveness. What really sparked my interest was that unconsciously people chose a mate or friend that has a symmetrical face. In all the highlights of this course was able to find out what you normally wouldn't in any other class while expanding what we know already.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, I would suggest taking organized notes everyday in class lectures. These notes will also help you with projects and leading discussion for the next class. The text book that you receive will soon become your best friend so make sure you read the unit and do the short quizzes at the end of each chapter.
