    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is not for the faint of heart. However, it is a course I would highly recommend for those students who enjoy a challenge and would like to reap the benefits of a higher level learning course. This course requires a lot of studying and hard work but it is all worth it based on the knowledge gained by the end of the course. Based entirely on this point I would recommend the course to anyone willing to put forth the effort.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were all the in class and individual projects that were used to solidify our reading and provide visual and hands on examples of topics discussed in class. For example, our brain project where we took household materials, food items, etc to create a 3D replica of the human brain. Normally it would be hard for most to be able to effectively recall all the parts of the brain and all their separate functions but by making a "brain" students were able to have a visual representation of the brain, its parts, their locations, and their functions. In this class I learned how to be a truly studious student. In order to be successful I had no choice but to study and actually look over the material outside of class. I learned how to develop effective study habits and I also learned that effort must also be put in outside of class time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that be open minded and positive throughout the course. The course load is very difficult and there will be times when you do not want to do it or just want to give up but I recommend you do not do that. You will be much more proud of yourself for earning the B or C than if you were to give up and earn that D or E.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course goes deep into explaining the anatomy of the brain and its functions. You will be learning about the variations of personality, nature vs nurture, the development of a child, states of consciousness - hypnosis, the effects of psychoactive drugs, and so much more. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Also your interest in the class and learning will be highly dependable on you teacher. I had the opportunity of having a wonderful teacher while taking the course, and I hope you do so too.​

    Course highlights:

    AP P​sychology, as the name indicates, is rigorous, but fun course. You will be learning various concepts in relation to the mind, body and so much more. From my perspective, It has been a very challenging and fun experience, from the interactive class activities(Kahoot) to the crashcourse videos and projects. The crashcourse videos were very helpful in understanding the concepts in the textbook and I recommend this to anyone who finds it difficult reading the textbook.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of every resource provided to you. Take online multiple choice tests, practice the FRQs, and study the vocabulary - it's ​a long list, but you’ll get through it. These are some of the ways that helped prepare me for the AP exam. Lastly, I would like to add this disclaimer, If you are not willing to work, this class is not for you. I hope you all are intrinsically motivated to learn and have a wonderful year.
