Psychology has an extensive vocabulary, and students often find it challenging to remember all the terms and their meanings. We employ mnemonic devices, flashcards, and regular quizzes to reinforce these terms and improve recall.
Understanding Research Methods
Many students find it difficult to understand and interpret the various research methods used in psychology. We clarify these methods with real-world examples and provide plenty of practice in interpreting research findings.
Applying Theories to Real Life
AP Psychology requires students to apply theories to everyday scenarios. We use relatable examples and role-playing exercises to enhance students' understanding and application of psychological theories.
Students often struggle with the statistical aspect of psychology. We provide simplified explanations and ample practice problems to help students understand and comfortably handle statistics in psychological research.
opics like brain anatomy, neurotransmitters, and brain functions can be challenging. We use visual aids, models, and interactive activities to simplify these complex concepts.
Human Behavior and Disorders
Understanding human behavior and mental disorders can be overwhelming. We present these topics in a sensitive, relatable manner and clarify misconceptions to aid understanding.
We delve into real-life case studies that represent psychological principles, allowing students to understand theories in practice. Famous cases, like Phineas Gage or Genie the feral child, serve as excellent teaching tools.
Interactive Learning Activities
Role-plays and simulations can help students understand complex psychological theories and concepts. For example, role-playing can be used to understand psychological disorders or therapeutic techniques.
These are particularly useful in AP Psychology for connecting various concepts and theories. We assist students in creating mind maps for topics such as brain functions, theories of personality, or psychological disorders.
Flashcards and Quizzes
Due to the extensive vocabulary in psychology, we use flashcards for memorization and regular quizzes for reinforcement.
Current Research Analysis
We encourage students to analyze current psychological research, enhancing their understanding of how psychological theories are applied and tested.
