    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fascinating! Learning the basics about how and why people think the way they do is certainly an interesting topic. The class work was relatively simple and nothing was extremely challenging or extremely easy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some basics about psychology that have stuck with me this entire year. I learned key terms, and can now apply these terms outside the classroom. You can't do that with math! The class was generally fun and engaging.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the text book! It's a hard read but you'd be amazed at how much you'll be able to retain once you have. Always do the extra credit chances and non-graded quizzes. A little extra points and some practice never harmed anyone. Tedious, I know, but it'll be worth seeing your grade go from a lower one to an A!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are going into the education field, it is a great class to learn about the minds of children and the different types of disorders that a child could have.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the movie that we watched about a child with a mental disorder. It really interested me and was a good way to introduce the class. I learned about the different types of disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to pay attention, read the chapters, do the homework, and study for the test. If you can do all of that, you will be fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of my favortie classes I've ever taken. The professor was amazing. He was fun, hard-working and knowledgable about the subject. He knew exactly how much fun to have in his class and he was very helpful if anyone had a question. He didn't care about our age at all, he treated us all as equals and I aprreciated that immensely. I would recommend this class to anyone thinking about starting a psychology class, especially as a major. I retained mass amounts of the information he taught me, and I am a high school student; I think he deserves an award for such a feat!

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of psychology in this class. We covered the perspectives, their theories, and we delved into the biological aspect of technology. We went over psychology applied to the work place, our homes, our schools, advertisments, and pretty much anywhere you can think of. The highlights of this course were definitely the videos we watched. Seeing theories in action or watching an amusing vidoe about psychology was fun and informative, which is always the best way to learn.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text book! Always, ALWAYS read the text. While the teacher did go over the notes, it's great to already have a general idea of what the chapter will be about. Mr. Rada believed that you retained his notes better if you already had the foundation in place. Also, take the quizes at the end of each chapter. Not only are there bonus points available, but you know what you do and do not know for the test you know is coming.
