Offered June 22-25, 2015
For new and experienced AP teachers
NOTE: please bring copies of your favorite activity to share with everyone (qty. 18) and a graphing calculator.
This four day workshop will consist of lectures, simulations, hands-on activities, videos, sharing (best practices), questions and answers, testing strategies, and a “mock” reading session of the Free Response questions. We will also work on setting up your AP program for next year.
The schedule will be flexible. We’ll try to stay on topic as much as possible, but since the four days’ foci are interrelated, we may find ourselves delving into areas not originally scheduled. So much the better. Linkage among topics is very important. Be prepared to ask questions, share musings, and pose “what ifs?” We’ll be very free flowing.
