2014 Advanced Placement Summer Institute
Date:  Monday, June 23rd, 2014 through Friday, June 27th, 2014
Time:  8:00am - 4:00pm
Location:  WKU's Campus
Description:  

Students can’t do it alone. As part of an ongoing effort to help schools meet the needs of high-ability students, The Center for Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University is pleased to offer the Advanced Placement Summer Institute. Since 1984, the Advanced Placement Summer Institute has assisted teachers in better understanding the demands of AP classrooms and high-ability learners. Consultants are experienced AP teachers who have demonstrated their ability to help other teachers prepare to teach Advanced Placement classes. Many are table readers, table leaders, test writers and even text authors for AP exams. The AP Summer Institute is endorsed by theCollege Board.

At the Institute, teachers are able to establish relationships with other teachers. One teacher remarked, “I learned a tremendous amount, and I will use it in my classes. I have a new ‘best’ friend as a source of info – actually several new friends to network!” As teachers have the opportunity to engage in professional development, they transfer their passion and commitment to learning to their students. Research by the College Board showed that “86 percent [of participants] indicate changing their instruction based on what they learned, and a quarter indicated that they followed up with a colleague they met there.”
