Hundreds of state teachers, principals and counselors are headed to Charleston this week to receive a little more education so they can be better prepared to help students with Advanced Placement (AP) instruction.
The West Virginia Center for Professional Development is hosting an Advanced Placement Fall Institute – Southern Session that runs Tuesday through Friday at the Charleston Civic Center.
Educators will attend training that will allow them to help students with Advancement Placement exams in May, according to a news release from the Center for Professional Development. Nationally recognized Advanced Placement instructors are scheduled to be on hand.
Several of the educators attending the Fall Institute are also participating in the Center's AP Success Initiative. This program provides support and resources to teachers in specific AP English, math and science content areas. This support includes providing additional professional development for teachers by AP instructors, resources for special study sessions outside of regular classroom time, administering mock AP exams that allow students to practice before they take the actual exam, and providing special parent and student outreach. The Success Initiative is supported, in part, by the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
