beginning of content:

AP Summer Institutes offer the most thorough professional learning available for AP educators. Attendees engage in 30 or more hours of content-rich training designed to strengthen how they teach their AP courses.

You’ll leave your AP Summer Institute experience with ready-to-use strategies and pedagogical tools shared by an experienced educator within the AP community.

At your Summer Institute, you will:

  • Explore each section of the course and exam description, including the unit guides, while making connections to the course curricular requirements
  • Begin to develop a course plan by unit and topic that incorporates the full scope of your AP course into your school’s academic calendar
  • Examine formative and summative assessment items to identify content and skill pairings that are the targets of these assessments and create lesson plans to reinforce content and skill connections
  • Practice applying the scoring guidelines from the most recent AP Exam to samples of student work
  • Identify student strengths and weakness using data available through AP Classroom and Instructional Planning Reports
  • Explore ready-to-use strategies, instructional materials, and pedagogical tools pertinent to the content and skills required for success in your AP course
  • Develop meaningful connections within the AP community

You’ll explore these AP resources in-depth: Unit Guides, Topic Questions, Personal Progress Checks, the AP Question Bank, Instructional Planning Reports, Syllabus Development Guides, Sample Syllabi, and the AP Community.
