AP Students Review Peers’ Draft Research

cap
Shoreham-Wading River High School students in Advanced Placement Capstone Seminar and AP Capstone Research came together recently in the high school library to peer review AP Seminar students’ draft research papers before they are submitted to the College Board.

“It was a great night of students conferencing and collaborating to help one another improve their writing,” English teacher Ed Storck said. More than 40 students worked in small teams with at least one AP Research student who completed the course last year and helped provide important insight and suggestions. Each team received specialized training so that they became experts on their assigned row of the research paper rubric.

The innovative diploma program equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges.
