AP Biology is considered to be a college level course and as such, it is often necessary to go beyond the textbook. At the end of each unit, students will submit a journal review. An article is to be selected from a credible science magazine or journal, examples: Scientific American, Discover, Science News, Science, Nature, (all of these are present in our librar). The article is to be copied, read, summarized, and critiqued. Random articles will be selected each unit for presentation and discussion in class.
The purpose of this assignment is to gain an understanding that each day some thing that we believed to be true can change and new knowledge can challenge the most accepted scientific ideas.
