Ongoing assignments that need to be scheduled and managed during the school year along with all your other school committments and class assignments.
1. Reading: We will cover all of the topics in every chapter in the AP Psych textbook. It is therefore extremely important that you keep up with your reading and outlining assignment as we cover these topics in class. Typically, you have at least a week, and more often much more time, to complete this. Do not wait till the last minute or the night before to complete your notetaking as you will become overwhelmed. Budget your time wisely.
2. Vocabulary Binder: For every chapter/unit we cover, you will create concrete, real-life examples (following a rubric) of the concepts being learned. As many chapters have 30, 40, 50 or sometimes more abstract terms, it is again extremely important that you devote the necessary time to work on this assignment several times a week instead of waiting till the night before it is due.
