AP Psychology Summer Reading

AP Psychology Summer Assignment

AP Psychology Summer Assignment
Mrs. Colette Martin

Welcome to Psychology!  This year should prove to be fun as well as educational.  This is college level work; therefore, I will treat you that way as well.  Completing assignments and meeting deadlines is your responsibility!  I will not accept any late work for the entirety of the year.  If you forget or leave your assignment somewhere when it is due it will not be accepted.  If you are absent you are still responsible for turning in your work.  The wonderful world wide web has made this possible.  My email is as follows: cmartin@tfd215.org and I DO CHECK E-MAIL IN THE SUMMER or contact me on Remind: text 81010 class code: @e64367!  If you are absent, please email me to find out what we did in class.  We will move quickly finishing the entire book mid-April.  It is your responsibility to keep up on the readings and book notes!  If you do not plan to read in this course you will not be very successful.  Reading quizzes are given at random and often.  This assignment is due the first Friday we come back to school, August 16th!
