2015 AP® Summer Institutes
June 22 - 25, 2015
8:00 A.M. - 4:30 PM
AP® Summer Institutes provide teachers of both AP® classes and vertical team classes with the exposure to content and resources needed to be successful in teaching an AP® class. The four-day APSI at Walton High School brings together the best AP® consultants from across the United States to share best practices, course content, teaching strategies, skills and knowledge in leading an AP® course.
While in class, participants can exchange ideas and information, have time to develop or complete their course syllabus, and build a network of colleagues engaged in providing rigorous coursework and supporting student success. The APSI course offerings are appropriate for both new and experienced teachers. Information about the AP® course audit and syllabi development are also a focus of every APSI workshop.
Upon completion of the full APSI, participants receive a College Board Certificate of Completion. The Walton AP® Summer Institutes does not offer college continuing education units, but the Georgia Department of Education has determined that the endorsed APSI workshops are approved for 3.0 PLUs. Teachers should check with their schools or districts regarding pre-approval if required. The Walton APSI will provide documentation to schools or districts regarding attendance as well as copies of the certificate of completion.
