(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- On Thursday, April 22, LRHS Advanced Placement (AP) Seminar students completed their Individual Multimedia Presentation (IMP).

AP Seminar is a research-based interdisciplinary course that encourages students to demonstrate critical thinking, collaboration, and academic research skills on topics of the student’s choosing. 

For this presentation, Mustangs were required to write a 2,000-word Individual Written Argument (IWA) relating to the Stimulus Material provided by the college board.

According to the College Board, “These materials are theme based and broadly span the academic curriculum. After analyzing the materials, develop a research question that suits your individual interest based on a thematic connection between at least two of the stimulus materials.”

The Mustangs were then required to give a six-to-eight-minute presentation about the topic that they chose. They designed a PowerPoint that has visuals, context and key points from their IWA.

The College Board also said that the students must, “Develop and prepare a multimedia presentation that will convey your argument to an audience of your peers.”

AP seminar teacher Sammy Stoltz said, “I am proud to see their final presentations come together since they have been working on them for the past two months.”
