ENVIRO AP - Description

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


Supporting arguments
Supporting Arguments

There is currently no AP Earth Science Course taught at GHHS

  • Students who excel in 9th Grade Lab Science, Geology and/or Marine & Field Ecology have no options to continue in an accelerated course


Supporting arguments1
Supporting Arguments

Alignment With PHS

Alignment with Stated GHHS Goals of Increased AP Participation

Re-establish CTE Science Class


Supporting arguments2
Supporting Arguments

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
