AP Seminar is a course designed to equip intellectually curious, independent learners with the power to analyze and evaluate information with accuracy and precision in order to craft and communicate evidence-based arguments. Students engage in cross-curricular research and conversations that explore the complexities of academic and real-world topics and issues by considering divergent perspectives. Using an inquiry framework, students learn to synthesize information from multiple sources, develop their own perspectives in research based written essays, and design and deliver oral and visual presentations, both individually and as part of a team.
