    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone interested in diving deep into the functions of the human brain, what sets each of us apart, and how factors in our environment influence our behavior. It's extremely interesting, and even after finishing the classwork, you always want to look up even more information about a certain unit or topic that piqued your curiosity.

    Course highlights:

    I learned first and foremost that you can't label people. At all. We don't fit into categories. We aren't meant to be able to be defined. We are unlimited. Don't go into this class trying to discover who you are, or what category you fit into. That's what I did, and I didn't get what I was hoping for. I actually learned an even greater lesson. I learned that even though I like to categorize and label things, behaviors of all living things refuse to fit into boxes, because they spawn much deeper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay in your book, take practice exams and quizzes, form study groups to review old tests and quizzes and help each other understand why the correct answer is the best fit. It's hard to do that by yourself because the book doesn't always give you straightforward answers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you want to know the reasoning behind your decisions, the functions of the brain, or even about the theories behind how our brain takes in the world around us every single second, AP Psych is for you.

    Course highlights:

    I've greatly enjoyed getting to know the parts of the brain, how they contribute to our actions, and fun facts, like how red and yellow make us feel hungrier- McDonald's, Burger King, etc. I learned you can live without frontal lobe function, which was discovered when a railroad worker got a spike through his brain

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your reading! If you stay on top of the daily reading, you are sure to succeed. Also, take notes in class! Hearing the information from your teacher, writing it, AND seeing it help you remember it longer! (Another fun fact)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you have any interest in learning the why and how behind the things you do then you will greatly enjoy AP Psychology. It is by far the most intriguing course I've ever taken, and really makes you think, and think about how you think! Looking for a class to get you awake and gets you reading your textbook for fun on the weekends? Look no further, because that is what this course has done for me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are when we are able to connect a particular term or theory right to a piece of a television show or movie. An example is how in Parks and Recreation, they exhibit classical conditioning techniques, or how in The Office, the main character uses mnemonics to remember his coworkers' names. I have learned a great deal about the biological function of each part of the brain, as well as the differences in how many past psychologists have researched and tested experiments based on the way they think psychology should be studied. Freud believed that our actions stem from our unconscious mind, whereas John B. Watson disagreed, and decided all we need learn about psychological functioning is apparent through behavior. Today, we see a mix of all seven views in the way most psychologists explore and treat disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your reading! The textbook needs to be your new best friend, but also make sure you study from at least one other source, for example, the Barron's AP Psychology Exam study book. It's a lot of work to maintain a high average, but the knowledge you acquire is so incredibly worthwhile. This is a course where the material you learn will be information you can use throughout your life.
