After the AP Exam in May, students will enjoy having some freedom for authentic inquiry. In this end-of-course project, your class will be working cooperatively to research, conduct and analyze a research topic of their choice. The project includes a presentation to the class. I have my students display their work on a tri-fold posterboard and on presentation day, we set the boards up similar to a science fair. This download includes project details and more importantly, the grading checklist for requirements. This is a great and FUN way to end your AP Biology course! For teachers with nearly a month (or more!) of school left AFTER the AP test in May, this project coupled with my End of Course Scavenger Hunt make two final "Big" projects for your students based on authentic inquiry! Each project takes roughly two weeks :).
