Psychology:

The post provides 8 tips for studying/learning smarter from cognitive and learning psychologists.  This connects with our unit on learning, and even more with our next unit on cognition and memory.  It is also directly relevant to your own learning experiences.  Read the article and consider the following:

  1. Summarize some of the psychology’s findings on memory and learning.
  2. Did you find any of these tips to be particularly true to your experience as a learner? Which ones and why/how?
  3. After reading point 8, reflect on the “fixed mindset vs. growth mindset.”  What are your thoughts?
  4. How will reading this change the way you study and learn in AP Psychology and your other classes? (This is a serious question – choose some clear action steps that you will take as a result of this information)
