Professional Learning

Teachers of Pre-AP courses participate in a professional learning experience that gives them a foundation in the program. We also offer Pre-AP Readiness Workshops to schools and districts interested in learning more about Pre-AP.

Development for Pre-AP Teachers

Teachers must take part in a four-day foundational institute the summer before their first year teaching a Pre-AP course. The institute introduces the Pre-AP course frameworks, pedagogical routines, model instructional units, and assessment resources. In the course of an intensive and immersive study of both their specific course material and shared cross-disciplinary connections, participants will plan and develop their Pre-AP course syllabi.

During their first year teaching the course, teachers must also complete additional online training in assessment analysis and scoring.

Pre-AP Readiness Workshops for Schools and Districts

Schools and districts that are not participating in the initial launch of the program but are interested in preparing their schools for Pre-AP course implementation in the future can purchase Pre-AP readiness workshops. These workshops are intended for those interested in learning more about the content, design, and pedagogy of Pre-AP and are a great way to help build readiness for future Pre-AP teachers.
