    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. D'Augereux is an incredibly positive and lively teacher who constantly finds new ways to immerse students in the material. I couldn't wait to come to class each day and every new topic was interesting and presented in a way that was very easy to understand. The class was also very involved in current events and issues and helped draw attention to things we overlook or take for granted in our daily life.

    Course highlights:

    This class was all about environmental processes and issues, which are closely linked to current events. There were several class discussions and projects that helped create a personal understanding of the material and real-world connection. The material and class set up were engaging and our teacher really utilized her resources. Throughout the year I felt well prepared for the tests and quizzes and was confident walking into the AP exam, which says a lot. The only thing that you felt anxious about was the free response questions, but as long as you do a practice every once in awhile and before the test, its nothing to worry about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice you FRQ responses and don't slack off. The material may not be that hard but knowing the processes and names of methods or issues really helps. Making connections with your daily life helps you become more aware and remember the material for later.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course would be a good transition from PreAP to AP, as it's not as fact heavy as the main course an AP student would take as a Sophomore: AP World History. The course ties in concepts from Chemistry and biology, which works out better in the long run because the students aren't taking in information that's entirely new to them on a higher level. Instead, they're expanding upon knowledge they already had, and studying the curriculum in a more sophisticated light.

    Course highlights:

    I'm actually still in the middle of the course, so I can't give a full report on every highlight of the year. I can say, however, that some highlights from the first semester were the full impacts of Human Beings on the Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Carbon Cycles. We didn't do any hands-on lab work for this unit, but to review cycles i'd learned freshman year was refreshing, and then to add the effects of/on these cycles was a really cool experience! Another highlight was the dirt unit, because we performed a lab in which we analyzed soil from our households; we separated the sand, silt and clay from each other to find what their respective percentages were. In addition to this, we also used the ribbon test. This unit not only taught me about the different soil types and applications, but also the role soil has on the environment and environmentally sound practices using the different types, like how landfills are lined with clay because it's the least permeable of the three soil particles

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't worry about it! That's not to say don't take it seriously-it's still an AP class. If you payed attention in your Chem and Bio classes, you'll do well.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is valuable because of the insight it provides on the interaction and relationship between humans and the environment. I highly recommend this course because it is not required by the school district but it spreads awareness of the pollution factors as well as information about how to manage utilizing Earth's resources for a balanced environment.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I have obtained knowledge about the environment and how humans impact it. Briefly, pros and cons of landfills, resource restrictions, pollution management and various negative impacts industrialization place on the environment. This course has opened my eyes to Earth's necessity for consideration and has effected how I utilize resources outside of the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The coursework is extremely thorough but covers a wide range of ideas. The variety of this subject always makes it fun to learn and it's so different from any other courses offered because it provides real life circumstances and knowledge in the subject overall helps restoration of Earth.
