Studying for Your Sensation and Perception Test

By now you've probably noticed that, although this unit doesn't contain any more vocabulary than previous units have, the major challenge it presents is that so many terms and concepts seem to be only separated by subtle differences. And, given their abstraction, writing about them (like on an FRQ...) can be a challenge because of the sophistication of the description required.

So...let's get started reviewing! Here is a handy list of study tools that may help you in your efforts:
  • First, remember that our Study Session for this Unit is SUNDAY, November 15th at 5 PM. Because we've been struggling with space issues in the past, I've moved this one to the CAFETERIA. Here are the links to the study session materials used tonight!
  • You should have a list of the Unit Objectives for Sensation and Perception. You will want to be prepared to do any of the tasks listed on that handout!
  • Don't forget to brush up on that vocabulary! Quizlet can help make sure you don't miss anything.
  • Carefully review that list of Confusing Term Pairs from this unit. Can you describe how these things are kind of the same YET different from each other?
  • If you've already burned through the practice questions on the paper Study Guide you were given in class and are looking for more, here are some practice questions on Sensation and Perception.

Note...I may or may not use all of this in class. I'm contemplating a different activity for handling Module 21 content, so you might not actually view these slides in class. I'm posting them here in case I use them AND in case you miss Friday and need some way to access content covered that day.
