An Appeal for Including AP Environmental Science at Gig Harbor High School. Eric Wolgemuth. ENVIRO AP - Overview. Earth Systems and Resources (10–15%) The Living World (10–15%) Population (10–15%) Land and Water Use (10–15%) Energy Resources and Consumption (10–15%) Pollution (25–30%).
Earth Systems and Resources (10–15%)
The Living World (10–15%)
Land and Water Use (10–15%)
Energy Resources and Consumption (10–15%)
Let’s take a few moments to *gently* review the AP Enviro Overview that I passed out.
I’m very excited at the width and breadth of the coursework, especially the emphasis on the ‘society’ sorts of things like laws, treaties, and such.
Please also note the Physical Science parts such as the specifics of energy, Second Law of Thermodynamics and the like
There is currently no AP Earth Science Course taught at GHHS
Alignment With PHS
Alignment with Stated GHHS Goals of Increased AP Participation
Re-establish CTE Science Class
AP Enviro can be:
A conduit to further AP Courses
An introductory course for students who are afraid of the rigor of AP Bio, Chem & Physics
“Open to: 10 (with written instructor approval) 11, 12 Science, CTE, or elective
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Honors Biology or recommendation from Biology or Chemistry teacher AND successful completion or concurrent enrollment in a Chemistry course. Geometry or higher math required.”
“Final admission based on departmental/administrative review and approval”
“Enrolled in Geometry or higher “
“Pre-Requisites: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geometry, Advanced Algebra (Chemistry or Physics may be taken concurrently).“
