Wilkes University, in cooperation with The College Board
will host AP 2013, a specially designed summer workshop for Advanced Placement (AP) teachers. This program is tailored for people who teach, or wish to teach, AP courses in the following fields:
- Environmental Science
Equal emphasis is placed upon pedagogical and subject content. The courses are designed to accommodate beginning and experienced AP teachers. Each course will review the latest changes and shifts in emphasis in the AP syllabus.
AP 2013 will begin Monday, July 22 with registration and breakfast in Wilkes' Student Union Building -- the Henry Student Center. Classes will begin Monday morning and run until Friday afternoon, July 26. A detailed schedule will be provided upon registration and evening participation may be required.
Instructors may assign preliminary reading, which will provide background for class discussions. Classes are designed to create an atmosphere rich with peer interaction and individual attention.
Using a team approach, each course is taught by
an experienced Advanced Placement Consultant and a Wilkes University faculty member. This pairing provides each class with a dual perspective on the AP syllabus. The AP Consultant brings an understanding of the AP program and curriculum, while the Wilkes faculty member offers new perspectives on research and issues related to follow-up courses in the discipline. Each course provides teachers with new ideas and strategies to use in their classrooms.
The courses offered in AP 2013 may be taken for 3 graduate credits or audited.
To earn 3 graduate credits students must submit additional assignments as directed by the instructor. Continuing Education credits are provided toward ACT 48. All AP 2013 participants will have access to the latest technologies and facilities in each discipline. AP 2013 is designed to be informative, helpful, encouraging, and fun. We hope you can join us!
