Product Description
This 17-minute TED Talk examines the optimism bias and is a great addition to the Personality Unit of AP Psychology. My students are always intrigued by this talk and are fascinated by the "act of anticipation" effect. They always have a ton of examples for it. We usually end up spending 30-35 minutes on this activity because we spend a good bit of time chatting/debriefing the video.

This video could also be used in a health class as a way to discuss the impact optimism can have on our bodies and the harms of unrealistic optimism.

There are 12 questions on the worksheet. Some are fill in the blank, some are short answer, and there are a few that are their opinion. I have included an answer key for your use.
