The Center for Gifted Studies recently held its annual Advanced Placement Summer Institute. This summer, 476 teachers from 91 Kentucky school districts, 17 states and three countries participated in the weeklong institute held June 27 to July 2 at WKU.
Endorsed by the College Board, The Center’s Advanced Placement Institute offered more than 20 workshops for both beginning teachers and experienced Advanced Placement teachers.
Advanced Placement Institute consultants are experienced Advanced Placement teachers who have demonstrated their ability to help other teachers prepare to teach Advanced Placement classes. Many are table readers, table leaders, test writers and even text authors for Advanced Placement exams.
Teachers left this year’s Institute with a wealth of resources and new ideas that they could take home with them and immediately implement in their classrooms. At the Advanced Placement Summer Institute, teachers embrace the concept of providing a quality learning environment for their students by first challenging themselves to become better educators.
