   128 O THER E  LECTIVES   AP   C APSTONE   AP Capstone is an innovative diploma program from the College Board that equips students with the independent research, collaborative team work, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. AP Capstone is built on the foundation of two AP courses  —  AP Seminar and AP Research  —  and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study experienced in other AP courses. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP exams of their choosing will receive the AP Capstone Diploma.

Notes:  $141 course fee to cover the cost of the AP examination fee  –    subject to change based upon College Board’s fee structure (Because of the nature of the assessment, the exam fee is higher than a typical AP exam fee). Due to the required collaboration in the AP Seminar research process, the course assessment is critical to course participation. In AP Seminar, students investigate real world issues from multiple perspectives, gathering and analyzing information from various sources in order to develop credible and valid evidence-based arguments. AP Seminar is a foundational course that engages students in cross-curricular conversations that explore the complexities of academic and real-world topics and issues by analyzing divergent perspectives. Using an inquiry framework, students practice reading and analyzing articles, research studies, and foundational literary and philosophical texts; listening to and viewing speeches, broadcasts and personal accounts; and experiencing artistic works and performances. Students learn to synthesize information from multiple source, develop their own  perspectives in research-based written essays, and design and deliver oral and visual presentations, both individually and as part of a team. Ultimately, the course aims to equip students with the power to analyze and evaluate information with accuracy and  precision in order to craft and communicate evidence-based arguments. 1996 Capstone Research (AP/GT), 1 credit (state)  GPA Level 1 Grade Level(s):  11-12 Service ID:  N1100014 Abbreviation: APRES  Prerequisite(s):  Capstone Seminar (AP/GT).
