I am so grateful for this site. I have appreciated all of the discussions and was hoping some of you would give a future AP bio teacher some advice. I am creating my syllabus/audit. I only have 45 minute periods 5 days aweek, no lab or double periods. So students are going to have to do alot more on thier own. Any suggestions? What topics have you found that students are able to learn with minimal teacher direction. These are 12th graders with a general biology and chem background .
