This writing project can be used for both AP and General Psychology classes. For this assignment, students are asked to demonstrate knowledge of course concepts by applying them directly to their own lives. Students may demonstrate mastery in a variety of methods. Students have made PowerPoint presentations, timelines, scrapbooks, board games, poems, stories, video interviews, and even a dialogue between a therapist and a patient.
1. Students must choose 10 of the 12 subject areas listed below and demonstrate a connection between those subjects and their own lives. The example topics for each subject are suggestions; you are not limited to using only these examples. Any examples you generate must have a clear connection to the chapters.
2. The connections must clearly demonstrate your understanding of the topics.
3. Connections may be made in a variety of ways, such as those listed below. Or you may suggest an alternative form of presentation.
