NEW COURSE ADDED: AP SEMINAR
We are proud to announce that we have added a brand NEW AP Course titled: AP Seminar.
You may be asking yourself...what is AP Seminar? Is it History? Science? English? Math? Art? The answer is...a little bit of everything.
AP Seminar is an interdisciplinary course. This means that it does not fit under any content discipline. Rather, it is a course that focuses upon the necessary skills that we need to be successful in any and every content class. For example, students will grow and master skills such as research, analyzing primary and secondary sources, presentation, collaboration, communication and many more. These are all skills that students must learn in order to be successful at the university level.
Students in this course will investigate topics in a variety of subject areas, write research-based essays, and design and give presentations both individually and as part of a team.
As we move into the 2021/22 school year, we are looking to add AP Research. The goal is for students to combine these 2 courses (Seminar & Research) and upon the successful completion, students will earn the prestigious AP CAPSTONE DIPLOMA.
To learn more about AP Seminar and/or AP Research and the Capstone Diploma, please contact the teacher, Stephanie Gonzalez, or you can visit this link at the College Board website.
