AP Terms

Here is the list (I can almost feel the shivers of recognition). Choose the term(s) you'll define and comment to this post so your colleagues know what has(n't) been done.

HELPFUL HINTS:
1. Personalize your presentation of the term. Do you remember a moment when you encountered an example? Have you developed a helpful mnemonic?
2. Remember to define the term. You can use the definitions here to start, but remember that your audience consists of your current colleagues and high school students around the world, so describe the term as if you were talking to these people.
3. Use media (pictures, videos, audios, ?) to provide examples and illustrate your points.

  25. Great job so far! To answer those who have asked, you may now do as many as you like for extra credit. (Judging by the Sartre/Plato essays I've read so far, extra credit is a safe hedge.) Speed is a factor because we have to account for the entire list by tomorrow or everyone's final exam study database will be incomplete. But keep in mind, some of you have partners and we're responsible for them too. Will you nab the credit or alert your colleagues?

  26. To be clear, you do have to announce which one(s) you're taking so that people can check their choices against the dwindling list of what's available. Once the whole list is covered we'll talk about how to share information on blogs etc.
