AP Seniors: Friday's Class Work

What’s a dinner without dessert, right?

Please complete the following tasks before the end of the period via a post here.

1.View the Final Exam Project on Edline.

2. Please post an exam and course reflection here. Please take some time to think about this. This is not an opportunity to berate your teacher, nor is it an attempt on his part to fish for compliments. Please discuss course experiences that prepared you well and tasks that you felt/feel ill-equipped for. I will take a close look at this and use your feedback to strengthen my instruction.

3. In preparation for the third portion of your Final, select one of the studies posted to Edline (Howley, Hodson, Bellis, or Stephens). Read it and develop a review of: research questions/hypotheses; methodology and data; conclusions and findings; implications and suggestions for future research.
