Psych 12 – Body Language Video

Hi Psych 12,

Some of you had trouble accessing this video from the PowerPoint presentation so here it is!

Watch the video below and take notes of up to 1-page on what you’ve learned from video. Submit these in Assignments on O-365 Teams when done.

April 6, 2020 – Updates

To all my Psychology 12, AP Capstone, and Law 12 classes: keep calm and wash you hands. For some of you, this period of an indefinite school closure will feel like freedom and for others it may feel like boredom or being overwhelmed. Either way, Mihic is thinking of you. I’m one of those weirdos who misses going into work, talking to people while drinking gallons of coffee so ya, this is a combination of boredom and stress all in one. 

I have nothing to report until next week when I’ll begin posting activities for each of my classes (don’t worry – I’ll email them out too). If you’re bored, you can always check out my Twitter account (@MsMihic) where I’ve posted a daily log since going into Covid lockdown and where I’ve also shared some course-related ideas. 


Hi gang!

Hopefully you’re all doing well, staying safe, and keeping as sane as you can at this strange time.

As you already know, school is closed for the indefinite future.  Does that mean school is cancelled? Absolutely not! We’re just moving to a modified and online format. I know that many of you may have a lot on you plate right now so I’m just trying to slowly build some routine and structure into your lives over the next while. 

Task 1: Log into Microsoft Teams. This is easiest by:

  1. Going into you school Office 365 account using your username and password. You will need to use your school email and password and then click on the top left corner to select teams once logged in. It is labelled as “O365-North-Mihic-PSYCH12-P1”.
  2. In the “Post” section, write a comment as to how you’re doing, any questions, comments, what you thought about the Tiger King show on Netflix,  or whatever (but keep it clean)… just so I know you’re ok otherwise I’ll be calling home by the end of the week. Feel free to email me if none of this makes sense.

We’ll start some real work next week. 

Take care and stay safe. 

Ms. Mihic

AP Research – Check-In #1

What will we be discussing? Your research question, literature review and introduction. Literature review should include sources to help support or add to your own research as well as present different perspectives to your research (original hypothesis). You should have a minimum 7 to 10 sources. We will also talk about your intended data collection and process and future direction.

You Must have 300/500 words completed, printed and ready for me for this first check-in.
