450 Teacher attend 30th AP Summer Insitute

The Center for Gifted Studies at WKU recently held the 30th annual Advanced Placement Summer Institute from June 23 to June 28.

This summer, 450 teachers from 93 Kentucky school districts, eight Kentucky private schools, three Kentucky Diocese, 17 states and three countries participated in the weeklong institute at WKU.

Endorsed by the College Board, The Center’s AP Institute offered 26 workshops for both beginning and experienced Advanced Placement teachers.

AP Institute consultants are experienced Advanced Placement teachers who have demonstrated their ability to help other teachers prepare to teach AP classes. Many are table readers, table leaders, test writers and even text authors for AP exams.

Teachers left this year’s Institute with a wealth of resources and new ideas they could take home with them and immediately implement in their classrooms. At the AP Summer Institute, teachers embrace the concept of providing a quality learning environment for their students by first challenging themselves to become better educators.
