AP Annual Conference Submission
Project Based Learning, an exciting new trend in secondary schools, is described by The Buck Institute for Education as "a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge." Hands-on learning of this nature can have a powerful impact, but how can we incorporate it into our AP courses without sacrificing some of the critical content we must introduce to prepare our students for their AP exams in May? Meet veteran AP science and humanities teachers from public and independent schools as they share projects that work within the AP curriculum at their institutions. Also, hear from a college counselor who demonstrates the impact of Project Based Learning on college application outcomes.
