Foundational Elements

Students in AP Psychology use a teacher-provided text and video resources to complete lesson concept maps, work on small projects, and use resources provided by the College Board to prepare for the AP exam.  A typical unit might include the following:

  • Multiple short videos, powerpoint presentations, and text links are provided to help students fill out lesson concept maps

  • Quizzes to test understanding of terms and concepts

  • CollegeBoard Progress Checks to assess students' mastery of topics

  • Unit application projects so students can apply psychology in their daily lives. Most students come to know themselves and others more consciously through these projects. They are the real joy of the course. 

​Concept maps are teacher-graded within 24 hours of submission, students will self grade their free responses on the CB progress checks in order to fully understand the College Board grading styles, and students receive individual feedback from their unit assessments.

Core Resources

​Your digital resources fee includes:

  • An ebook of Bedford, Freeman & Worth's Myers' Psychology for the AP Course (2024, 4th edition) by Myers, DeWall & Hammer.

    • This well-regarded text has been revised and adapted to follow the College Board's newly updated curriculum framework that will be in place beginning in the 2024-25 school year.
