Pre-AP Readiness Workshops for Schools and Districts

Pre-AP Readiness Workshops orient participants to the content, design, and pedagogy of the Pre-AP program. Designed for content teachers in grades 6-12, these workshops empower educators to apply what they’ve learned to their own grade-level and content area. Learn more about the Pre-AP Readiness Workshops here.

Workshops are available for private purchase by a school, district or state. To schedule a workshop, email [email protected] for assistance. Please include the name of the workshop you are interested in, along with the requested date of delivery.
