AP Seminar Application for 2019-20 Year
AP Seminar is meant to provide a basis of skills to help you be successful in future AP Courses. It is also the first course in the AP Capstone Program, which requires you to take 6 AP Courses including AP Seminar and AP Research during your High School Career.

What do I learn and do in AP Seminar?

For the first half of the year, you will build analysis and communication skills while learning about a diverse set of topics like the gridded paintings of Chuck Close, the science of mirrors, the discovery of fission and the making of the atomic bomb, gentrification, women in science, and more! While you learn about these things, you read challenging texts, participate in debates and socratic seminars, give presentations to your peers, and write research papers. Starting in January, you will complete 2 research projects, one in a group and one independently.
