to help teachers successfully navigate this highly interesting but challenging course.
This workshop is designed to help both the beginner and experienced teacher successfully navigate the themes, key concepts, and skill-building requirements of the new AP* World history course framework.
A cooperative learning environment is encouraged wherein the practical is privileged over the theoretical. Instructional ideas and strategies are shared and many useful classroom-tested materials distributed.
Participants are offered opportunities to create and then share responses to AP* World-style free-response questions.
Attention is also paid to the development of syllabi that meet the curricular requirements of the course audit.
