Participants are strongly urged to bring materials with them (textbooks, plans, etc.) to the Institute because we will be building curriculum during the week. Also, participants are strongly encouraged to bring laptops to the Institute because I will be sharing a lot of material through Google drive during our week together.
This AP US History course will help teachers develop effective plans for their AP US History courses. The course will include an overview of the skills, concepts, and themes of the AP US History curriculum. Each element of the AP test will be reviewed with an emphasis on development of classroom strategies to help your students effectively prepare for each of the tasks they will compete. This course will be beneficial for experienced and new AP US History teachers alike because we will devote much of the time in collaborative work to create materials that are ready to bring back to your classroom. You are encouraged to bring your textbook for use during our activities and lesson planning. You are also encouraged to bring a laptop computer, since materials will be shared via google drive with participants during the week.
