As we move forward with focusing on the different AP science classes, this week, we’re focusing on AP Biology. This class comes with a lot of content, material, reading, and prior background knowledge to help students succeed and prepare for the end-of-year AP exam. I’m so lucky to have guest Beth Hines be the expert on this class since she is a veteran teacher and has been teaching AP biology for 3 years. In today’s episode, Beth shares so much information, wisdom, and encouragement, and how to keep your students accountable and truly prepare them for the course and final exam.

Since there’s so much content to cover with AP Biology, I jump right into it with Beth. Her ability to be open about what she loves the most and her opinions on labs, homework, grading, and textbooks will help listeners get an idea of what’s most important when teaching AP Biology. Beth also answers the most common and pressing question of how to get through the content and effective ways to prepare students for the final AP exam. One way she serves her students is by having high expectations for them and holding them accountable for their actions and learning the content, which will benefit them in the class and future life skills.

No matter how long you’ve been teaching, teaching an AP class can be intimidating and a lot to handle. So, if you’re in this situation, Beth shares advice and what resources to become familiar with to feel prepared before your students arrive. Whether you’re a teacher of an AP science class or not, I know you will gain beneficial information to use in your own classroom. Stay tuned to next week’s episode as we highlight another AP science class!
