This class was tough.
Many students dread the thought of waking up at 6 am and dragging themselves into a cold hard seat, listening to a teacher lecture for two hours. But this monstrosity does not happen in my AP Capstone Research class. For the entire year my classmates and I conduct in a research experiment of our liking and write a 20-page research paper on it. My topic of choice was ‘the impact community service projects have on empathy and compassion levels’. Within this class I never worry about being bored or uninterested, I look forward to continuing my research on my selected topic. Because of this class, waking up at 6 a.m. and dragging myself into a cold hard plastic chair doesn’t seem so bad.
I learned how to properly write a college paper, collect efficient data, annotate & analyze. The biggest highlight I encountered from this course was the freedom to choose what I wanted to learn more about.
