    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For a motivated student willing to take on the work of an AP class, AP Environmental Science is a fantastic class to take. Mrs. Winslow did a great job of making sure that we were able to apply or learning to the real world through experiences like touring a wastewater treatment plant and growing hydroponically-watered produce. To succeed in this course, make sure you review concepts at home after you go over them in class to really cement your knowledge. Also, try to make specific connections between each chapter you learn and the ones previous to it as you go along.

    Course highlights:

    - Highlights: growing hydroponically-watered produce, visiting a state park and speaking with a ranger, testing water quality at a local estuary, researching and presenting a project about a national park. - During this course, I learned how interconnected the natural world is and how profoundly humans have negatively impacted it. This class definitely motivated me to be more conscious of my environmental impact and live a more sustainable lifestyle.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make a review sheet after every chapter containing important terms, concepts, and diagrams or illustrations- this will definitely come in handy when it comes time to study for the AP test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think that this course is useful in participating in the real world- knowing figures about pollution and about how hurting our environment hurts us too. This is one of the only science classes I've ever taken that has made me more cognizant of what I do in daily life and how it might affect other people.

    Course highlights:

    This course didn't really have a very organized outline. We learned about pollution for the bulk of the year, which is a lot of what was on the AP test. We also learned about why overpopulation happens. The most interesting thing that I learned in this course was that if we uplift women, we will stop overpopulating. Once women feel that they are not being forced to have tons of children and stay in the home, a lot of environmental problems are solved. So, not only is there a social obligation for feminism, but there's an environmental one, too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course was a lot of notes and a lot of memorization. On homework, start early. There isn't much sympathy if we have a lot to do on one night. I would definitely break it up and try to study a little each day so that the memorization doesn't seem as heavy. And yes, you DO actually need to know the statistics of how much forest covers Russia.
