    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd strongly advice others to enroll in this Ap psychology course on the basis that it provides an abundance of knowledge to students who want to learn about how the human mind thinks the way it does and why we are who we are. If you are someone who has always wondered why you think a certain way or how the things around you come to shape what makes you then this course should be a definite on your registration card next year. Both of our Ap psycology courses that are offered have amazing teachers who have a love for the course and make the material easy to learn. Granted it can be time consuming and a little overwhelming at times but it's worth it in the end. You'll never see the world the same way again, at least not without psychology terms filling the void when you remember something while you're out in every day life. This course really is the highlight of my day and I wish I could make it yours too.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this year that are most interesting would have to be when our class was learning about the 5 taste sensations. If you didn't already know you have five taste sensations: bitter, sweet, sour, salty, and umami. Our psychology teacher says it like this [ uuu-mommy] and it always makes everyone laugh. Another highlight of this year would have to be when we were learning about the mind palace, which is when you visual hard to forget objects in your house as to help you later remember large quantities of information, we visualized a vocab term next to our ovens where big bird was standing. And you know what no one forgot that vocab term. Lastly my final and best highlight of the year would have to be our teacher. She is so lively, energic, funny, and knows how to teach and do it well. She has never once been that teacher who reads off a PowerPoint in a monotone voice. She's always intriguing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give to prospective students would be to: always do your homework, study guide, and EXTRA CREDIT because it's not given often. Also don't cross Mrs. Douglas because she'll hunt you down in the middle of the school day. Finally the best piece of advice I can give is to not slack off in the fourth quarter andyes I know it can be a lot of work but don't slack off just fight till the end and I promise the results will be fulfilling.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Psychology is such a fun and in depth course that will certainly make you rethink everything. This course will also make you more empathetic to people and provide you with a better understanding of why people do the things they do.

    Course highlights:

    You definitely learn quite a bit in this course and you actually learn about learning, I know, it's wild. You get to participate in quite of few of labs that help you understand the material more. You take a lot of notes in this course, but it is all worth because it will help you retain the information your learning better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't shy away from the course just because of the intensive note taking, its really not all that bad. But be prepared to do a fair amount of work.
