The sessions in this institute will introduce participants to the AP U.S. Government and Politics course with a combination of "how to" and content. Sessions will range from looking at the scope of the course and how to cover the content, to lessons from past exams. We will start the week by analyzing the 2013 free response questions and past free response questions. We will also look at past multiple choice exams.
After you’ve had all that you can take of the exam, we’ll look at the course and different ways to organize lessons. We’ll talk about preparing your syllabus and look at lots of different examples. As we go through the different units, we’ll look at content that should be covered and possible activities and materials appropriate to each unit. The goal of the week is for you to feel comfortable teaching AP U.S. Government and Politics and go home with lots of different activities and resources.
We are currently planning AP Summer Institute 2014!
