This summer AP Psychology students should read:
50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology
Students can find information to help them as they read the book here:
AP Psychology Summer Reading
Duez Lecture & Introduction to 50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology
Notes - 50 Great Myths - Summer Presentation
There will be a quiz and test over the book during the first two weeks that we return from summer. This book is a fantastic introduction to psychology because it tackles many of the common misconceptions about psychology. If you have heard that it is easy because it is all "common sense" -- well, you heard wrong. However, because psychology runs counter to many of the assumptions we hold about human behavior, the class is endless interesting as a result.
