Course Details

The AP Environmental Science Institute will be held July 18-22, 2022 to prepare teachers for the AP Environmental Science course. This course is designed as a rigorous, interdisciplinary class focusing on the application of scientific concepts and principles to the understanding and solution of environmental problems and issues. Envisioned as a broadly interdisciplinary course, it builds on scientific principles from chemistry, physics, biology, ecology, and earth science. The course includes substantial laboratory and field components to help students learn about the environment through careful observation and experimentation while developing their critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. Participants will learn about the content, development, and grading of the AP examination, the use of technology and other curriculum resources, and the selection and planning of appropriate laboratory and field experiences for the course. Much of the class time in this workshop will be spent in laboratory and field activities. This class is intended for new and beginning AP Environmental Science teachers (0-4) years of AP experience.
