KSLA – Captain Shreve students excelling in new AP Capstone course

Students at Captain Shreve and two other Caddo Parish high schools were offered a new advanced placement course this school year.

Before the school year began, Captain Shreve Principal Ginger Gustavson, and the teacher of the AP Capstone course, Amy Douglas, explained new coursework and how they are preparing for it.

Douglas said this class is designed to push her students out of their comfort zone and to a higher level.

“I have seen lots of growth in all of my students,” said Douglas. “At first, what I saw was papers that look a lot like book reports and what I am asking them is being an attorney getting ready for trial. You can’t just tell the information. You have to tell me is it credible, where did you get it from, was that source credible and do you agree with it.”
