I have taught AP Psychology for 14 semesters with sometimes 5 classes EACH semester. With over 300 students a year, I use this resource as AP students' nightly homework. It is student-driven and makes any textbook useful. I also let them use these study guides on quizzes to encourage them to read and complete.

Included here is an entire year's worth of AP Psychology study guides. Each packet is designed with a cover page in which students check their knowledge at the start of a unit. A separate column is present so that students can assess their knowledge at the end of the unit, too. It guide students as to what to study for the unit test as well as assist the teacher in covering all necessary objectives. Next in the packets are study guide questions. They are followed by the largest chunk of the packets which is vocabulary tables. All the necessary vocabulary terms are included in the packets. Students are to define them and then apply the word to his/her life. I emphasize drawing a picture in the column to help retrieval! The last part includes practice Free Response Questions. These help students prepare for the AP Psych Exam in May as well as Unit Tests.
