The videos are all less than 3 minutes long, so they're easy to watch in-between classes, during prep, or whenever you need a refresher on your textbook program. At the end of the course, you'll receive a Program Guide to use as a reference of your materials, as well as a lesson planning guide to help you get started.
With an undeniable gift for writing, Dr. Myers will lead your students on a guided tour of psychological science and poignant personal stories. Dr. Myers teaches, illuminates, and inspires.
Four years ago, we published this ground-breaking text which is correlated directly to the AP® course. Today, we build on that innovation and proudly introduce the 2nd AP® Edition. Whether you are new to AP® Psychology or have many years under your belt, this uniquely AP® book program can help you achieve more.
Organized Around the AP® Course. The 14-unit organization of this new text mirrors the scope and sequence of the College Board’s AP® Psychology Course Description.
Incorporates AP® Terms and Content. Because this text focuses entirely on AP®, Dr. Myers completely reworked his text to align all the content with how it is best taught in an AP® classroom. For example, Edward Tolman is now explicitly associated with the concept of "latent learning" in the Learning unit, and Gustav Fechner with the concept of "absolute threshold" in the Sensation/Perception unit. In another example, Myers’ Psychology for AP® includes the term "procedural memory" as a synonym for "implicit memory."
Uses High School-Specific Examples. Dr. Myers re-wrote the examples in the AP® text to be high-school friendly. For instance, a reference to "Remember when you were in high school?" is now the more appropriate "Remember when you were in middle school?"
Embeds AP®-Style Practice Questions. Longtime AP® Psychology teachers, Readers, Table and Question leaders collaborated on the multiple choice and free response questions found throughout the text. Charlie Blair-Broeker, Randy Ernst, Rob McEntarffer, and Steve Jones supply you with more questions than any other text, along with a grading rubric for all free response questions in the Teacher’s Edition.
Includes Robust Ancillary Materials, Including a Wealth of AP®-specific Resources. Myers’ introductory psychology texts have always led the market with unmatched resources, and Myers’ Psychology for AP® is no exception. We offer a teacher’s edition, resource guide, ExamView® test bank, and more.
