APSI Environmental Sciences at NCSU

North Carolina State University is pleased to offer an AP Environmental Sciences Summer Institute July 15-19, 2019.  Although this workshop is designed to prepare new and beginning teachers (0-4 years of AP Environmental Sciences experience), teachers of all levels are welcome to learn about the new 2019-2020 APES program and new resources available for teachers and students through the AP Community.

The AP Environmental Science course is a rigorous, interdisciplinary class focusing on the application of scientific concepts and principles to the understanding and solution of environmental issues and concerns.  During this workshop participants will learn important information in each of the major topics, and perform several laboratory and fieldwork activities.  Topics include ecology, geology, hydrology, solid earth, air, energy, agriculture, soils, population, pollution and mathematical skills.  Each area will be discussed and question how humans have impacted the earth.

Course and exam information will be clearly presented in a Course and Exam Description (CED).  Participants will learn about the content, development, and grading of the AP examination.  Recent APES exams and their scoring will be reviewed with special focus on this year’s exam questions with emphasis on how to write, prepare and grade students on Free Response Questions.  At the end of the workshop teachers will have a good understanding of the course, have planned out the year, understand how to teach the course and assess student’s knowledge.  Starting in August teachers will need to complete a simple digital activation process to access the new resources and help their students register with the AP Community.
