What's Ahead in AP Psych?
Happy New Year!
I'm here at school working on getting ready for the upcoming week and for our final content unit prior to the end of the semester - no small task after a busy lead-up to Christmas break! You all were able to relax a bit and catch up on some much-needed rest over these past days. We'll hit the ground running tomorrow, so I thought I'd give you a head's up about what January's busy schedule looks like.
Students can begin reading content from Chapter 10, as we will begin exploring that information (on thinking and language) in class tomorrow. The quiz on Chapter 10 will take place MONDAY, JAN. 9th.
Per usual, there will be a study session prior to this unit's test. That optional test prep opportunity will take place THURSDAY, JAN. 12th, as the unit test will be FRIDAY, JAN. 13th.
Following the unit test, we will immediately begin reviewing for the semester final. Students will get a chance to get a jump on their reviewing during a weekend review session scheduled for SUNDAY, JAN. 15th from NOON - 2 PM. (Note: on the course syllabus I scheduled this for 5-7 pm, but I've altered the timing since I anticipate that a fair number of my students will want to be free to watch the Packer game, which starts at 3:30 PM that day).
The following week during class will find us reviewing in various ways on Monday and Tuesday, and there is a final evening study session scheduled for TUESDAY, JAN. 17th from 5 - 7 PM.
Students will get more information about the content and format of the final exam in the coming weeks, but I thought I'd get the dates out there to you as a reminder to schedule in your reviewing time carefully.
Let's get ready to finish the semester strong, everyone! Welcome back.Final exams will take place from Jan 18-20 at Chi-Hi. :)
