Textbook Message

If you still have not gotten a textbook...  
The textbook room will be open every day after school for the first week for those students that did not attend Flight School.  We will open at 2:50 and close at 3:15.
If a student has early release then they must see Ms. Burton before school to fill out a textbook request form and we will have them pick them up the next morning.
Any student that has any lost textbook(s) from the previous year will not be allowed to check out textbooks until the books have been paid for.
Of course you could always purchase a book if you wished. 

I had several students do that last year. The book:
Textbook: Weiten, Wayne. Psychology: Themes & Variations. Wadsworth Thomson Learning; Fifth Edition, 2001.

However if you purchase newer versions you will be fine. The text isn't substantially different and I rarely even refer to the page numbers in our text. It is essential to do the reading because it gives you a baseline of understanding. Teamed with our notes and class work, you will be fine. We also use a healthy dose of PsycTrek 3.0 in class. That is a digital learning tool from the textbook. It's pretty awesome.
