Carleton College Summer Teaching Institute
June 27 - 30 & July 12 - 15, 2016
Summer 2016 Information:
As part of our ongoing effort to offer challenging and engaging workshops, we have selected some of the AP* courses most frequently offered in high schools and created First Time workshops and Advanced Topics workshops. Both workshop options present unique challenges and opportunities for teachers with varying levels of subject area experience.
First Time workshops are designed for teachers who have taught their AP* course for three or fewer years, regardless of their level of teaching experience and/or subject area experience. First Time workshops focus on effectively planning, organizing, and implementing AP* curriculum. First Time workshops will also discuss the AP* Exam itself, including strategies for preparing students.
Advanced Topics workshops are designed for teachers who have taught their AP* course for three or more years. Advanced Topics workshops focus on specific curriculum topics and increasing content knowledge. The content of Advanced Topics workshops are partially guided by the participants' needs and tend to spend less time discussing the specifics of the AP* Exam.
The July institute is much smaller than our June institute. The objective is to offer additional workshops for teachers in high attendance subjects and also current or recently redesigned subjects.
Enrollment for the July workshops will include a mix of experienced AP* teachers and teachers who may be teaching their AP* subject for the first time in the coming school year.
