1 Ms. Shaughnessy-Zeena s Summer Assignment

2 To: Students, From: Ms. Erin Shaughnessy-Zeena, Social Studies Teacher RE: Introduction and Summer Assignment Welcome to! is designed to introduce students to the atic 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. You also learn about the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and practice. The aim of the course is to provide the student with a learning experience equivalent to that obtained in most college introductory psychology courses. Accordingly, is a course that requires rigorous study, copious reading, and continuous time management. Hard work, dedication, responsibility, and accountability are essential components for student success. Enclosed you will find the course syllabus which contains classroom procedures and an outline of our course of study, as well as the summer assignment. Review the syllabus so you are well aware of what lies ahead. While the course is manageable, there is substantial content to learn. The summer assignment is designed to aid in your commencement of this journey of exploration into the discipline of psychology. The text we will use is Myers Psychology for AP, Dr. David G Myers, Worth Publishers, While we will provide you with a copy of this text, if you are so inclined, you may wish to purchase your own copy and/or supplementary materials. Free and open resources can be found at There is a link to this website on my website, You may also wish to purchase a review book such as Barrons, 5 Steps to a 5, etc. and/or the flash cards for that are available. These are valuable resources. Summer Portfolio This summer, AP Psychology students are expected to complete a portfolio that will document their thinking and learning process that has occurred during the summer months. Attached is a copy of each assignment to be included in your portfolio. The portfolio will consist of three different sections, which will be placed in a binder or folder using the following section headings: 1. Personal Biography 2. Essential Terms 3. Rubric Your Summer Portfolio is due the first day of class. There are no exceptions to this due date. My best advice is to have it completed and ready to be turned in the Friday before school starts so as to avoid any unforeseen challenges (such as lack of printer ink or paper). Directions are very clear and attached. My website contains helpful information and links. Check it out at It is expected that you will share this information with your parent(s)/guardian(s).

3 Summer Assignment: Portfolio Name: Date: Assignment Instructions: In a ½ in binder, include the following in the following order. Each section should have a labeled divider. Cover Page: needs to be on cover. If the binder does not have a place for a cover, you must create one with glue or tape, etc. Requirements: Title: Summer Portfolio Your name School Year Teacher name Inside Requirements (in this order): Section 1: Personal Biography Section 2: Essential Terms Section 3: Rubric You will receive a test grade for your portfolio.

4 Summer Assignment: Personal Biography Name: Date: This is your opportunity to begin a process that we will continue throughout the year, personal reflection. It s expected that your biography will be not just a list of facts or information, but also a truly reflective piece in which you begin to examine yourself with a psychological lens. Reflect upon how your past experiences have shaped the present you, and to examine your personal, professional, and/or educational goals as you near your high school graduation. Your assignment is to create a personal biography. Include the following: 4. A picture yourself (one at a minimum, you may include more) 5. Background information about yourself (educational, family, cultural, etc.) 6. A description of your personality as you see yourself and as others see you 7. Reflection upon mentors / important individuals in your life 8. Reflection upon life changing experiences 9. The moment of your life thus far of which you are most/least proud 10. Your reasons for taking AP Psychology 11. Your goals for the course and your goals for the end of your high school career 12. Your thoughts about psychology. What is it? Do you see it used in the real world? Etc. 13. Any other information of which I should be aware Your biography should be approximately words, typed, and included as section one in your AP Summer Work Portfolio. Please note that three pages are not necessarily awarded more points than a concise, well written two page paper.

5 Summer Assignment: Essential Terms Name: Date: Instructions: For each of the following terms, create a flash card sheet. The expected format of the sheets is attached. Each sheet/card should contain the unit of study (History & Approaches, Research Methods, Biological Basis of Behavior, etc.) the term, the definition, and a symbol. The symbol can be something simple, you needn t be an artist. It should be something that makes sense to you and helps you to learn and later recall the meaning of the term. Use your own words! Do not write something down if it does not make sense to you! Be prepared for an assessment on these terms. Check my website for helpful links, 1. Psychology 2. Empiricism 3. Introspection 4.
