AP Psychology Course Description PDF from College Board
We will review each of the major topics or "approaches" that we have studied. The Mock AP test will be used to guide our discussion of topics and what to expect % wise on the AP test and also what to expect in terms of how many numbers of questions you will see from each portion.

We will break down the free response question and see examples and best practices on how to score the most points to answer the question.

Quote of the Day:  "And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more." -Dr. Seuss


Over the holiday break, think about a theme for AP PSYCHOLOGY T-Shirts. Shoot me an email or stop by next semester and let me know what you think. We will need to create it soon and order it in Feb-March for it to be ready for the test.
