Course Syllabus

Course Description

This course is designed to be user friendly for the new AP teacher. Feedback from experienced teachers suggests that new approaches, honing of ideas and the opportunity to work with peers make the course worthwhile for them as well. The course offers time for teachers to develop a long-range vision for the class they are about to teach and some practical lessons for the beginning of the school year. In addition, some general knowledge about the AP test and prompts will be presented. Teachers should bring materials for class and syllabus questions or concerns.
