AP® US History
This interactive institute will have something for every teacher, regardless of experience. A closer look at the curriculum framework and the new test is a given. Other topics include organizing the course, teaching strategies and skills, content specific lessons, grading essays, resources, and creating test questions. Participants will take home activities that can immediately be used in the classroom.
The primary focus of the institute will be to address the parameters of the course and look closely at the Curriculum Framework, including Historical Thinking Skills with thematic learning objectives. In addition, time will be spent examining the exam—multiple choice, short answer, long essay and DBQ.
