This course covers the strategies teachers can use to teach the main topics of biology as well as the new technologies that are being used in the study of biology. Participants explore new techniques geared toward teaching a college-level biology course to high school students. Instruction also focuses on tips for the AP® biology exam. Participants have the opportunity to share with other new and continuing AP® biology teachers. Administrators and AP® coordinators also should find this course useful, as it explains the design, benefits, and challenges of an AP® biology high school course.
