I have been pulling together the best psychology materials and editing my PowerPoints for 5 years. I was never satisfied with the stuff I started with so here I have 5 YEARS worth of AP Psychology PowerPoints.
Many of these PowerPoints are HEAVILY annotated with extra stuff that I have found interesting over the years. They are ideal for the beginner or anyone who simply wants to add a slew of reference material to their classes. Slides often include links to sites and vids that I thought were good but I cannot guarantee that the links will work, if you know anything about the internet you know what I am talking about.
This collection contains over 1937 AP slides. Yes, you read that correctly! One thousand nine hundred and thirty seven!
There is about 186 MB of material here.
These powerpoints are very straightforward. They do NOT contain fancy transitions and only have animations where it is actually functional. My philosophy is that just because PowerPoint can do something does not mean it is a good idea for a presentation in a real classroom. Also, I do not have any sounds, I do not want my ppts beeping at me and whatnot. They also often contain graphics and memes that I think are fitting but some might consider them a bit irreverent.
The way I use these is to print them out in “note-pages” style, punch them and keep them in binders. I have my binder on the counter on my media cart so I can reference all the extra material I have included and remember tons of cool stuff to tell my students about as I go through each presentation.
