FRQ Essay take home due on Monday, Oct. 27

Mr. Duez will be out of school on Monday, Feb. 23, 2015

I am writing tonight to let you know that I have just put in for a sub and done my sub plans. I am going to be in school before anyone arrives tomorrow to setup for the sub. The classroom should be good to go. Please, please, please help the sub. It means a great deal to me that the substitute has a good day. Remember, I always have a sub take my job because I am prepared and because my students are fantastic. It means a lot. My job filled in less than 1 hour this evening. 

Tomorrow in class, AP Psych will watch a series of Crash Course and other videos that will really help you with understanding this unit. Take notes. 

You can use them on the quiz on Tuesday. 

Mrs. Duez will also be out (for AP Macro or Econ kids that have her).

As a family we are going through an incredibly difficult time. Over the past week I have held in the tears while at work (mostly), however at home they flow often and our sadness is very painful. Our wonderful dog, Gryff has a terminal form of skin cancer. 

He is beginning to really feel the pain. As a dog lover and as a friend to my dog, I will not let him struggle with what will certainly be a horribly painful end of life. So tomorrow I am taking him to the vet so that they can administer drugs to help him pass on and ease his pain.
 
My heart is broken in a million pieces. Many of which I will never be able to put back in place. This dog means a great deal to me. He was there for me during my toughest days. Saying goodbye to him is tearing me apart.

So please understand and be patient with me. He is really my best friend. I do not know what I am going to do with him in my life. He has a kinder heart than most of the humans I have ever met in this life. I have had to deal with this type of situation before. Most recently, last month with our 21-year old cat, Milo. But I have never felt this amount of pain, sadness, and horrible emotion for a pet passing. He is only 6 years-old. Gryff is truly a second son to me. And always will be.

Sensation and perception are areas that have been of interest to psychologists for most of the history of psychology. As we sit here, our senses receive literally thousands of messages. We need to make sense of this information. Our senses take in the information, and they do so from birth. Yet the interpretive part -perception- requires knowledge.

Essential Questions:
* How do we convert light into images?
* How does the ear responds to sound waves?
* How do we taste or smell?
* How does the somatic sensory system function?


Agenda:

1. DO NOW: Prep for the Quiz - Unit 2: Biological Bases of Behavior & Sensation/Perception
