AP Biology Summer Assignment
Welcome to AP biology. Our class is intense, with a lot of material that needs to be covered in a relatively short amount of time. Please be aware that part of taking this class is commitment to being on time, on task, and occasionally learning content on your own. We look forward to working with each one of you next year!
We know the words “summer assignment” tends to send chills down any high school student’s spine, but this assignment will be beneficial to you as we start the school year. The reason we are giving you a summer assignment is to keep your mind sharp so you are ready to hit the ground running!
- Part A: Read ONE book from the book list or a choice of your own which is approved by Ms. Koujak and Mrs. Poniatowski.
- Part B: Write a review for the book, prepared and printed out for the first day of class. Follow the general outline below. Also, the length is generally more than two pages and less than seven.
- Part C: Watch one science, technology, or medicine documentary during the summer. Netflix, amazon prime, or my favorite free website topdocumentaryfilms.com has a HUGE list of documentaries to choose from. Pick one in your interest area. Watch it. Be prepared to talk about it on the first day of school. Our conversation the first day of school will take the form of a carousel and book club format. Be prepared!
