Embedded Image for:  (201715124352237_image.jpg) Class Description:

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 are exposed to the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. This will include the major psychological theories, concepts, as well as the principles and theories on how we learn and memorize. We will also learn about human development, cognition, personality, motivation, mental health, and much more.
 
Rounding Policy
Rounding to the next highest grade will be considered ONLY if ALL assignments were completed and turned in and if the grade ends in .5 or above.  Semester grades are rounded according to the same policy.  If you have had any missing assignments, do not expect a rounded grade.  
 
Late Work
No late work will be accepted after 1st quarter, barring the exceptions of excused absences (per the student handbook policy) and extenuating circumstances (these must be discussed with me).  For first quarter only you will have one day after the due date to turn in assignments, for half credit. After first quarter, no credit will be given for late assignments.
