European History (hist 1262)
Designed to accommodate both new and experienced teachers of AP* European History, this workshop will include lectures and discussions of topics in European history as well as extensive discussions of teaching and structuring advanced placement* courses. Throughout the course we will strive to bring recent interpretations of European history to bear on our teaching. Morning sessions will focus on curriculum and content. In the afternoons, we will share ideas and experiences on advanced placement* courses and assessments, and talk about textbooks and other course materials. There will also be specific discussion concerning the AP* course audit as well as the use of formative assessments in your practice.
