This curriculum was designed to connect to AP themes starting in year 1, from the very beginning. Each unit connects to at least one AP theme. By the time they reach upper AP classes, they will have a lot of knowledge and experiences so they are ready to discuss at a higher level.
We believe that MULTIPLE AP themes should be incorporated in MULTIPLE units, instead of planning a unit completely based on an AP theme and only touching on it once during the year.
Big “X” means it’s is a major component. Little “x” means it is only a touch (like one lesson).
