Advanced Placement Psychology (fall and spring) (Chamberlin)
This year-long course will prepare students for the Advanced Placement Psychology Exam, which is given in May of each year. The course will follow the A.P. Guidelines and approved textbook so that students are continuously working in ways that are geared toward being ready to pass the A.P. exam.
Students will be introduced to the systematic study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Together we will explore the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with the major fields of psychology. Students will also learn about the methods psychologists use in their science and practice.
This course will benefit students who are interested in pursuing further education in psychology or a career working with people.
There are no prerequisites for the course, but it is recommended that students have taken courses that addressed human anatomy and physiology and that addressed the scientific method and very basic statistics. Understanding of these things in advance is not critical, but it will help simplify the learning for students.
