					                        AP PSYCHOLOGY
 About My Class:
 This semester course is designed to engage and challenge students while teaching
 them the fascinating subject of Psychology. There will be reading/terms homework
 every night and an AP style quiz every day.

       All students enrolled in the course will be required to take the AP Psychology
        Exam (paid for by the school). The AP Psychology Exam is approximately 2
        hours long and includes both a 70-minute multiple-choice section and a 50-
        minute free-response section. The test is scored on a 5-point scale.
       The course prepares students for the rigor of college.
       All colleges accept AP credit

 College Board (www.collegeboard.com)
  The purpose of the AP course in Psychology is to introduce the systematic and
 scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings and other
 animals. Included is a consideration of the psychological facts, principles, and
 phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. Students
 also learn about the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and
 practice.

 An introductory college course in psychology is generally one semester in length,
 with some variation among colleges. An AP course in psychology need not follow any
 specific college curriculum. Rather, the aim is to provide a learning experience
 equivalent to that obtained in most college introductory psychology courses.

of student’s who take it; it
  allows students to look at
 themselves from a different
                perspective:

         “A fun and
       refreshingly           “AP Psychology is pivotal to
  different type of           understanding yourself, your
             class”           environment, and your peers. What
                              you learn in the course can be
                              extended to every dimension in your
                              life, conscious… or not”
