Tuesday, December 11, 2018

This week AP© Seminar will be filled with excitement and anxiety.  This week students will begin their Advanced Placement© testing when they begin the first of three tasks that will comprise their Advanced Placement© Score.  This week students will begin Performance Task 1, which is group project that will examine a controversial issue from multiple perspectives through various inter-disciplinary lenses.  Through inquiry, the team will determine the issue to explore and the lenses and perspectives from which to explore the issue.  Each student will then research an aspect of the issue through a lens from multiple perspectives and write a 1,200 word research report.  Students will then share their research with team members and formulate a solution/resolution for the issue/problem that was explored.  Team members will then create and give an 8 to 10 minute multi-media presentation of their research and solution/resolution along with its limitations/implications.  Performance Task number 1 will be completed no later than February 11, 2019 and students will then begin Performance Task number 2.
