- AP Course Audit
The AP Course Audit process is designed to ensure that teachers have a thorough understanding of the redesigned AP Biology course requirements, and that they receive the support needed to create their course syllabus. Teachers have several options for creating a syllabus. They can revise and submit their own syllabus, or they can adopt one of the four Annotated Sample Syllabi available on the AP Course Audit website, and use it as an approach to teaching the course. January 31, 2013 is the deadline for submitting a revised syllabus.
- AP Exam
In May 2013, students will take the revised AP Biology Exam. The exam’s format and content is described in the redesigned AP Biology Course and Exam Description, which includes the curriculum framework and sample multiple-choice and free-response questions.
- Professional Development
AP offers a range of professional development options, including face-to-face workshops and AP Summer Institutes, which demonstrate practical ways to design and implement rigorous curricula and prepare students for success on the revised exam.
The AP Biology Teacher Community is a new online forum moderated by fellow educators, where AP teachers connect with colleagues, share classroom materials, and exchange ideas. Join the community today and begin conversations with peers.
