1 Welcome to Mount Si High School’s Open House Please sign in…. AP Biology/Biology Andrew Rapin Room 124

2 AP Biology course goals: Course Goals: To increase my students’ biological literacy – (i.e. increase their awareness and understanding of this subject from a thematic and conceptual framework- instead if just factual). To challenge my students as a critical, analytical and creative thinker. To help prepare my students for the A.P. Biology Exam in May. To hone my students’ reading comprehension and scientific writing skills. To acquaint my students with biological laboratory procedures and techniques.

3 Transition from Biology to AP Biology Students taking this course are expected to take more accountability and responsibility for their own learning. More rigorous Increased technical knowledge Greater depth and breadth
