Downloading the Unit Guides  (Course Framework for Art & Design) is required for 2019-20 course authorization for all new teachers and teachers of the nine AP subjects (Biology, Comparative Government and Politics, English Language, Environmental Science, Italian Language and Culture, Drawing, 2-D Art and Design, 3-D Art and Design, and World History: Modern).
The unit guides clearly define the content and skills required in the AP course and align with the new resources that will be available in August. Teachers aren't required to follow the sequence outlined in the unit guides, but we encourage you to consider using them when developing your own course plan to ensure inclusion of the content and skills specified in the course and exam description. Completing these Course Audit steps will enable teachers of these subjects to maintain access to online score reports in July 2020 and ensure that their courses appear in the school’s AP Course Ledger.
