Humanities, Local Culture, Psychology
AP Psychology at Home
Remind for Humanities is: text @19human to 81010.
Local Culture is the study of the
history of Desoto County and the surrounding area. We will also review
local government and learn about the role of local government in your
lives. This class includes a field trip within Hernando to a historic
site. This is a 9 weeks, .5 credit class.
AP Psychology is a semester, whole
credit class. The AP exam that will be given on May of 2020 and will
consist of two parts: multiple choice and written response. The written
response is two writing prompts and can be pulled from any subject
matter covered in the course. Because these two writing prompts will
make or break your AP test score, this is a writing heavy class. LOTS OF
WRITING! This is a college level course and not for the weak-hearted.
Come prepared to do a lot of writing!
Remind for AP Psychology is: text @hhsappsyc to 81010. This is the way I will get information to students and parents alike.
