Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Capstone
Those with allergic reactions to tests, rejoice! AP Capstone has come to your rescue. Instead of merely administering run-of-the-mill pencil and paper tests, AP Capstone is a program that encapsulates all the buzzwords colleges love. You’ll work on independent research projects, collaborate with team members, and show off all your hard work in presentations.
Besides being the Weirdest-of-all-the-other-APs, AP Capstone is also the most comprehensive, as it combines several courses:
- AP Seminar puts your research skills to the test in a team project and presentation, an individual research-based essay and presentation, and a end-of-course exam.
- AP Research tests your academic prowess in a 5,000 word thesis paper, and presentation with oral defense.
- 4 or more AP Courses of your own choosing. You’ll be a savant in no time.
Before you start running off in the opposite direction, Shmoop’s got you covered.
In the AP Capstone guide, you'll find
- detailed guides to both AP Seminar and AP Research
- a full-length end-of-course exam
- sample presentations, complete with PowerPoints
- research paper outlines
- top secret skills and strategies
