In this workshop for middle and high school teachers, you will learn how to strengthen an AP® Vertical Team and create a curriculum that emphasizes key concepts of mathematics at all levels of instruction. Through the implementation and vertical articulation of concrete strategies, you will gain a deeper understanding of the skills and knowledge students need in college-level courses.
Length: 1 or 2 days
After attending this workshop, you will be able to:
- Align a curriculum across grade levels by organizing instruction around the key concepts of mathematics.
- Identify, develop, and use mathematical problems and activities that formatively assess students’ understanding of key concepts, problem-solving methods, and reasoning skills.
- Adapt AP Exam free-response questions as a vertical alignment strategy.
- Create an action plan for sustaining the AP Vertical Team.
