​Environmental Science

I am excited to lead the AP Environmental Science Summer Institute in Madison and look forward to helping both new and experienced APES teachers increase their success with the course.  My goal is for teachers to enhance the quality of their APES program through the use of inquiry labs and data analysis. The week will consist of developing or reviewing course syllabi, pacing, national exam preparation and strategies to improve student test scores.  This will include scoring student free-response questions as well as writing AP style multiple choice questions. We will run many of the lab activities in their entirety so that you can get comfortable with the techniques and methods of data analysis. In addition, we will take advantage of the beautiful outdoor campus available to us to conduct field investigations. I will share with you resources to improve your curriculum and delivery of content to enhance students critical thinking skills, as well as all lectures, labs, and assessment I use in my course. Please plan on bringing a lap top, an idea to share, and cloths for field work.
