Psychology 12

Mr. Katsionis                                                                

Throughout this course we will explore a wide variety of topics such as the impact of human behavior and psychological concepts such as human development, social psychology, personality and abnormal behavior. As we progress through our four units, we will be approaching this course from a clinical perspective. By maintaining this perspective, we can keep an open mind and understand the rationale behind why certain individuals choose to make conscious decisions.

Course Expectations:

  1. Treat yourself, others, the teacher and learning space with respect.
  2. It is expected you will submit all assignments on time and to the best of your abilities.
  3. Ask questions so that we can have an engaged learning environment.
  4. There are NO cell phones permitted unless otherwise specified. Phones will be taken away for improper use.
  5. You are required to be in class on time. If you are late, come into the classroom as quietly as possible.
  6. If you are away, you are still responsible for all missed work. Consult Mr. Katsionis when this happens.
  7. Ask the teacher when you need to leave the room for a water break and/or the washroom.
  8. You must follow ALL online procedures and regularly check our class website:
  9. Please submit ALL assignments through Microsoft Teams
