World History: Advanced Topics (hist 1277)
About the Workshop
This course is intended to fulfill the needs of current, experienced teachers who are involved in the Advanced Placement* World History curriculum. While a brief review of the course will occur, there is an expectation that teachers attending this course are ready for an examination beyond a description and introduction of the College Board* curriculum guide. An emphasis will be placed on the AP* World History course redesign beginning in 2016-2017. Pedagogical issues such as support for students who need extra assistance in an AP* class, and instructional issues and scheduling will also transpire. Teachers should be prepared to share course calendars, pedagogical insights and (on the last day) share a favorite, or ‘best practice,’ lesson with the group. Please bring a computer that will enable you to write as well as search. A portion of this course will be devoted to creating lessons and assessments that are more closely aligned with the recently updated curriculum.
