AP Seminar – Global Challenges Conference

On Tuesday, 2nd of February, 2021, the two Grade 10 AP Seminar classes successfully presented their Team Multimedia Presentation (TMP) on their chosen global challenges. This conference was both an assessment of their work in the AP Capstone program and a celebration of their impressive effort and achievements. This process commenced back in October 2020 when students formed their groups, identified their chosen global issue or problem, then devised their group’s research question and varied approaches.

Students then worked on their own Individual Research Report (IRR) by focusing on a specific lens or perspective surrounding their group’s issue. After completing the extensive research and writing process, groups came together to collaborate, sharing all their individual findings to transform their collective knowledge into creating a team solution for their global problem. Students utilised multiple skills including argumentation, critical and higher-order thinking, public speaking, and visual and multimedia design skills. Finally, they were required to answer Oral Defense (OD) questions about their team’s collaboration and process. The AP Capstone team, including the teacher librarians, want to congratulate all teams for their truly engaging, meaningful, and dynamic presentations.
