Welcome to Advanced Placement Psychology!
I hope everyone is looking forward to the 2008 - 2009 school year! I am excited about our endeavor and I know that although
it will be challenging, we will all enjoy this year very much! This is a college level course that uses a college level textbook.
You will be treated as responsible intellectuals and I will expect you to be serious about learning the ins and outs of what
psychology is all about.
The AP Psychology course is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific
study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Students will be exposed to the psychological
facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. A goal of this course is to
provide students with a learning experience equivalent to that obtained in most college introductory psychology courses, in
addition to preparing students for the AP Exam.
In this yearlong course, students will be expected to understand objective,
empirical methods of collecting and interpreting data, make meaningful interconnection between disparate concepts and analyze,
evaluate and critique thematic perspectives. Content will include, but not be limited to, methods, biological basis of behavior,
sensation and perception, states of consciousness, learning, cognition, motivation and emotion, developmental psychology,
personality, testing for intelligence and personality, abnormal psychology, treatment of disorders, and social psychology.
Course outline will adhere to the guidelines of the College Board.
This college level course will expand your knowledge,
challenge your mind and, at times, actually be entertaining! It will help you to better understand yourself and those around
you. Psychology is a very dynamic discipline, so there is a lot to learn!
I would like everyone to get started in
the right direction. You will find this course much more manageable if you set up a regular schedule for yourself. We will
be covering a lot of material this year, so a consistent schedule will be particularly helpful. This will help you to remain
ahead of deadlines and have plenty of time to complete assignments and readings. Students will be expected to come to class
prepared for the day’s lesson or exam, participate in class activities and discussions, and turn in all work on time.
Organization, respect, and responsibility are crucial for success in this class.
I am looking forward to teaching,
working, sharing my passion of Psychology, and learning with you. Because I am committed to your success, as your instructor,
I will do everything possible to make this class both interesting and challenging for you. I will give my best, and I only
ask the same from each of you. If any problems or concerns develop, please do not hesitate to see me or email me. I cannot
help you if you do not communicate your concerns to me.
Mrs. Kerri Hennen
