430 Teachers Attend 31st Year of AP Summer Institute at WKU

430 Teachers Attend 31st Year of AP Summer Institute at WKU

The Center for Gifted Studies at WKU held the 31st annual Advanced Placement Summer Institute from June 23 to June 27.  The experienced chemistry course was held from June 30 to July 3.

This summer, 430 teachers from 75 Kentucky school districts, 14 Kentucky independent school districts, three Kentucky Diocese, 15 states and three countries participated in the weeklong institute at WKU.

Endorsed by the College Board, The Center’s AP Institute offered 25 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.
