AP REVEIW BEGINS....

We're getting to the point where we need to review all that we've learned this year WHILE continuing to master new content as we finish our last few units. Use this post as your guide to get started.

If you tend to procrastinate... and most of us do.... you should read this post about how to overcome procrastination. http://www.spring.org.uk/2014/03/10-foolproof-tips-for-overcoming-procrastination.php

Use the AP Psychology Score Calculator http://appass.com/calculators/psychology to see what it takes to get a 3, 4 or 5. Move the sliders and hit "calculate" to see the score.

Some good review resources:

APPSYCHOLGOY.COM
This wacky ap psych teacher has a fantastic website full of review quizzes and more... way more. His powerpoints are great as are some of the videos he has available. http://www.appsychology.com/HowPass/howpasshome.htm







LEARNERATOR.COM
You can also try out the free AP Psych questions on the Learnerator or pay the 10-15 bucks to sign up.

YOUTUBE.COM

Mr. Schallhorn, an AP Psych teacher in California, put together a great set of YouTube videos you can use to review for AP Psych. His YouTube channel is at the following address.

YOURBOOKSNOTESANDFLASHCARDS(not)COM
You also have your AP Review Books, your Bernstein Study Guides, your PsykTrek CDs, and the thousands of flashcards and hundreds of pages of notes you've created this year.

TWITTER.COM
Mr. Jones, an AP Psych teacher from North Carolina started using Twitter last year for  AP Psych review.

"...if a student has a question about AP Psych, they can just type the question on Twitter and put this at the end of the tweet:  #appsychreview  

For those of you who are old hats at Twitter, you’ll recognize #appsychreview as a hashtag – it’s a way to group together tweets with a common theme. Anyone can then assist the student with their question – it could be a AP Psych teacher, a professor, or even a fellow AP Psych student. I’ve asked a few AP teachers to help out, but we would love your help. If you are familiar with Twitter and you would like to help out with answering questions, it’s probably easiest to set up a separate search for #appsychreview or just bookmark this link: https://twitter.com/#!/search/realtime/appsychreview ."

For info about how to use #APPaychReview see http://teachinghighschoolpsychology.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-return-of-return-of-ap-psych-review.html?m=1#sthash.lOcy1InI.dpbs

Keep in mind that these will mostly be other students answering questions, so it's not as authoritative as a textbook or other edited resource.

As you find other resources, please e-mail them to me at ptdworkin-cantor at cps.edu or post them in the comments section of this post.

22boys were on unknown to each other. Whit middle-class background. No boy new about each other they each was picked randomly. They where transported to a 200 acre boy Scouts of America camp of Oklahoma.
Groups where kept away for each other
QUESTION?
WHAT MAKES SUCH GROUP SUCH ATTENTION BETWEEN THEM?
What can be done to reduce that attention?
Answer Made a test on boys (brought to outside world)
-Boys didn't known about other group
Focused on group bonding
In 1 week brought each one of them as a team became a strong group
Second stage was created competition -only one winner/ one loser no price for second place .
Name calling, Vandalism, Violence
"seem to me Maufer Sherif was testing the ability of the boys."
3. Group had to work together to solve problem
End of the research they found that the boys liked each other cause of the actives
Whole point was to show the M.S Theory was right.
when you put two group to work on the same task they actually bond and show each other caring. However a clever way form the start would've been showing respect from the start,
Theory is correct over 50 years . "Shown proven victims could bond as one another when they have a moment to do a group bond"
