The College Board is launching an official Pre-AP program in fall 2018. The launch will include five new ninth-grade courses, with other courses to follow, open to all students. These subject-specific courses are designed to give all students the opportunity to become ready for AP courses. See how your school can join.
Pre-AP Readiness Workshops for Schools and Districts
We’re offering workshops to help educators prepare for implementing the new College Board Pre-AP courses in their schools and districts.
But these Pre-AP readiness workshops aren’t just for schools that currently offer Pre-AP courses. They’re suitable for any middle and high school educator who is interested in preparing their students for Pre-AP and AP coursework. The workshops equip teachers with time-tested strategies for helping students develop the foundational knowledge and skills they’ll need in the Pre-AP and AP classroom.
These interactive and immersive one-day workshops will cover a variety of topics:
- Instructional routines and shifts of the Pre-AP classroom
- Engaging students in higher-order thinking and analysis
- Analyzing student work and differentiating instruction
- Interdisciplinary instructional strategies and routines
A full list and description of workshops will be released in January 2018, and workshops will be available for purchase and facilitation beginning June 2018.
The College Board’s SpringBoard program, a comprehensive ELA and math curriculum for grades 6–12, is designed to prepare all students for high school and college success as well as AP coursework.
