We are almost to Spring Break! Hang on for five more days....
Monday - Friday: The students will be working on their Create Task that will be submitted to the College Board for 24% of their AP Score. This is a program and written assignment. Students are not allowed to seek outside help or feedback on this project. They will receive 12 class hours to work on this at school but can work on it at home if they choose. Keep in mind that if they work on it at home, parents, siblings, neighbors, etc. are NOT allowed to help them. Any outside help will result in a potential plagiarism flag. The details of the project and scoring rubric are linked below.
