Advanced Placement Environmental Science, 2019-2020 [email protected] Remind 101 Text: kk4cg4 to 81010 (modified from brewtech.mps-al.org) Welcome to AP Environmental Science, commonly known as APES. I am expecting next year to be a really great year with a lot of fun activities. I also hope it will be challenging and require you think about things you may not have considered before. APES is an advanced interdisciplinary science course that prepares students for the national AP Environmental Science exam, using a college text and requiring college level skills. A passing score on the AP exam may qualify the student to by-pass a semester of a first-year college environmental science course, so APES should not be considered "college prep." Rather, this is a college class , with college level expectations for behavior, participation and effort. Students will be required to do extensive reading and writing. For more information about APES and AP courses in general, go to The “problem” with environmental science is that it’s an immense field of study. Not only does it combine various fields of natural science (biology, chemistry, geology, and physics), but it’s also complicated by history, sociology, politics, economics, laws, and ethics. This interdisciplinary perspective is also what makes it such an important and powerful way to look at the world. Because we have so much ground to cover, I have some work for you to do over the summer to get you started thinking along these lines. Your Summer Assignment: 1. Sign up for Remind 101 (manditory) 2. Read a book and write a reflective paper (due Monday, August 12) 3. Watch an environmentally themed movie and write a review about it (due Wednesday, August 7) 4. Math Self Assessment (due Wednesday, August 7) Assignment #1: Sign up for Remind 101 Remind 101 allows teachers to send texts or emails to groups of students while keeping the teacher’s phone number hidden from the students and the students’ numbers hidden from the teacher. I send out messages and reminders periodically. It is required, text @kk4cg4 to the number 81010. Assignment #2: Choose ONE book to read and write a reflective paper which will be due on Monday, August 12 2019.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
