Strategies for Success in AP Sciences

AP® Chief Reader reports show that students often make the same errors and omissions on the AP Exam. In this workshop, you will learn how to help your students develop academic vocabulary, make meaning of difficult text through close reading, and provide meaningful answers to complex questions. You will leave the workshop with strategies you can immediately implement in your AP curriculum.

Length: 1 day
