This workshop is designed for new and experienced AP Biology teachers who are eager to learn about instructional strategies that will help implement the re-designed AP Biology curriculum and the curriculum framework. Included will be discussion of the curriculum, the exam, and the laboratory investigations. Inquiry-based instruction and assessment strategies that merge content and science practices will be utilized. Issues of equity and access in the AP classroom and program will be addressed throughout. The agenda can, and will be, reasonably modified to accommodate discussions and the needs and interests of workshop participants.
Since this workshop will now be conducted online, participants should have access to a desktop or laptop computer and/or a webcam with mic in order to engage with the facilitator and peers. A small list of inexpensive or easily obtainable supplies may be shared ahead of the workshop. As much as possible, the instructor would like participants to join in the guided lab activities in their own home locations.
