Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
AP teachers and administrators will leave the session with an understanding of why College Board created new resources, what they are, how they are intended to be used, and what next steps are for teachers and AP coordinators.

Description: 
Advanced Placement Courses should not be for the anointed student; they should be for all students and our job as AP teachers is to prepare all students for the AP exam. AP instruction is intended to go beyond content explanation; AP students should demonstrate specific, higher-level thinking skills on the AP exams for college credit, so it is critical that AP classroom instruction prepare students.  In the 2019-2020 school year, the College Board is introducing a suite of free resources, designed and tested in collaboration with AP educators, to strengthen a teacher’s instructional practice leading to optimal learning for students.  AP teachers can use these tools through the year to help students learn college-level content and skills.  Changes will happen as well as to when and how AP exams are ordered.  AP teachers and administrators will leave the session with an understanding of why College Board created these new resources, how they are intended to be used, and what next steps are for teachers and AP coordinators.  

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Participants will listen/view explanation slides, discuss material with both the group and with individuals, and view/listen/reflect upon several explanation videos.
