Prerequisite: Literature II and Writing II
Course Description: This course will equip students with the skills to analyze and evaluate information with accuracy and precision in order to craft and communicate evidence-based arguments. Students will have the opportunity to explore real-world issues from multiple perspectives and consider varied points of view to develop a deep understanding of complex issues and topics in order to make connections between these issues and everyday life. Students gain a rich appreciation and understanding of issues by reading articles, listening to speeches or broadcasts, and experiencing artistic and literary works. The primary goals of the AP Seminar course are to help students understand how to study an issue from multiple perspectives, evaluate source information, and then develop and communicate a logical, evidence-based point of view effectively. Students will practice and apply these skills through the exploration of complex topics and by examining a variety of often divergent or competing perspectives.
