This session is designed for both new and experienced AP® art history high school teachers. For the 2019-2020 school year teachers will have access to new online resources including an AP® Question Bank and student Personal Progress Checks. The revised 2019-2020 AP® course and exam description includes more clearly defined art historical thinking skills.
This session will explore these changes and resources and help teachers apply strategies to become more successful within their classroom. Participants will revise their teaching pedagogies to create more intentionality in their instruction, receive help with pacing, learn question-writing and test preparation skills. Participants should bring a laptop, a previous test, a class activity, a PowerPoint lecture, and a school calendar.
