AP Summer Institute

May 15, 2014: U.S. History has filled. We regret that we cannot accept additional registrations.

Dear Teachers,

AP* Summer Institute workshops are subject-specific professional development opportunities. They provide teachers with the support and training needed to teach AP* courses. Teachers from all over the world come together at Augsburg College to exchange ideas and information about AP* courses and exams. Workshops are appropriate for both new and experienced teachers.

As you have most likely already heard, AP* U.S. History course is going through a redesign for 2014-15. Per the College Board, the redesign of the course and exam maintains strong alignment with the knowledge and skills taught in introductory courses at the college-level, and offers teachers the flexibility to focus on specific historical topics, events, and issues in-depth. The redesigned course begins in fall 2014, and the first AP* exam based on the redesigned course will be administered in May 2015.

As per College Board requirements, “Beginning in June 2014, AP* U.S. History workshops and Summer Institutes will focus on the redesigned course only.”

In addition to AP* U.S. History, we will also be offering eight other workshops in high-demand subject areas. Augsburg College is located in a vibrant area of Minneapolis, Minn. easily accessible via the nearby stop on the light-rail transit. Both airport terminals serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul area are also located on the same light-rail line making our Institute an attractive option for teachers coming in from out-of-state.

Whether you are coming from near or far, we hope that you will join us this summer for this professional development opportunity.
