Hyperdocs for Myers for AP 2e

Many/most textbooks are organized using the chapter principle. This can work well for teachers at the college level but does not always work well for teachers at the high school level, especially those of us who teach Advanced Placement Psychology. The textbook I use is the Worth Publishing text written by Dr. David Myers, Psychology for AP, 2nd Edition. At my school, all the students have Chromebooks, so we are 1:1 and I have my students complete much of their work digitally.

The Myers text and it is divided into units that reflect the content of the College Board. Each unit is subdivided into Modules (referred to in the chart below by M and a number). Below are the hyperdocs I created during the 2016-17 school year. Please keep in mind that these are not perfect and reflect my emphases of the content I deemed important at the time. I am continually updating my documents and most of these can be used as is. I encourage editing and modification for your own classes.

I limited the hyperdoc formatting to two columns--it is visually easier for me to read/review the content. Not all of these are complete with everything I want to create within each unit--Unit 14 is a great example--the focus there is on vocabulary only--I will be adding quite a bit to this doc for this upcoming year.

You will also notice that the units that occurred early in the year do not yet have hyperdocs. As I work on them at the end of this summer, I will place the links here.

Many of the docs also contain direct links to where I have all my course videos--it is a pay site, but my students are able to access my videos at no cost.
