The Summer Programs Information Desk is located on the first floor of Coles Tower. The desk is open 7 am to 9 pm, 7 days a week, during the summer. Please visit us if you have questions or concerns while on campus. We want to make your stay at Bowdoin as pleasant as possible.
Designed for both experienced and new AP Biology teachers, this workshop will provide an introduction to the most important aspects of the newly revised AP Biology curriculum with a particular emphasis on moving toward guided, student-designed, inquiry-based labs. Participants will engage in an extensive hands-on lab experience, including lab prep and data analysis, with labs that fall under the “Four Big Ideas”. Lab exercises will include those in the new AP lab manual as well as many alternatives. Discussions will include ways to modify and adapt your existing labs to fit the new AP Biology Science Practice Standards. During the week, time will be set aside for discussions on different teaching strategies and activities, course design, how to develop a syllabus with the new framework, and the new exam. Participants are asked to bring their 2013/14 school calendar, a calculator, their own laptop (if possible), and a favorite lab, project, activity or other assignment to share with others.
