July 22 – July 26
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. Our goal: to help teachers successfully navigate this highly interesting but challenging course.
Former AP* U.S. history and AP* World history teacher at the Bronx High School of Science; consultant for the College Board in both subjects; recipient of numerous student-nominated outstanding teacher awards; has taught at Teachers' College and in the History department of Lehman College. Conducts AP World one-day workshops for the Middle States office of the College Board.
