The Teaching Tips document is a rich repository of items that will make your AP Psych course better. Among other things, there is a history of the AP Psych course and exam, choosing a textbook, working with parents, getting students to read the text, numerous activities, how to write the free response questions, eight sample syllabi (which include pacing and ordering possibilities), the exam format, what to do with students to prepare well and what to do with them afterwards. The document also includes additional resources. In other words, it's a gem.
Take some time to examine the document (1.6MB .pdf download). I highly recommend it before you complete your planning for 2011-2012.
