The Office of Summer Academic Programs has launched its annual Summer Teaching Institute, which runs from June 19 to June 24 on the campus of Carleton College. The program is designed for high school teachers who wish to learn new techniques for teaching Advanced Placement classes.
The days begin early for participants, and include six hours of in-class instruction, along with various meetings and activities. “I’m very impressed with the instructors,” says Steven Powers, who teaches psychology and U.S. History at Como Park High School in St. Paul. Most courses are team-taught by veteran high school teachers in combination with Carleton professors.
