Providers of AP CSA Curricula and Pedagogical Support
College Board has endorsed innovative curricula that come with preapproved syllabi that can be adopted through the AP Course Audit, lesson plans, and other instructional supports, delivered by expert education organizations. These curricula include professional development to prepare teachers, whether experienced or new to computer science, to teach the AP Computer Science A course. Guidance on how to use the available topic questions and Personal Progress Checks with the curriculum is also provided.
Adopting one of these out-of-the-box solutions can be a good choice for schools implementing AP CSA. If your school decides to use a curriculum from one of the endorsed providers below, your AP CSA teacher can attend a professional development event offered by that provider and get guidance targeted to that curriculum. Of course, your teachers can also choose to participate in an AP Summer Institute for AP CSA.
