Preparation

While professional development is not required to prepare for 2022-23 AP® course updates and new classroom resources, the College Board encourages all AP® teachers to take advantage of any professional development offered by AP®.

Teachers who plan to attend any AP® Summer Institute should be able to:

      • Understand the Course
        • The course framework defines the scope of the course and specifies what students must know and do to be successful on the AP® Exam.
      • Plan the Course
        • Sequencing, pacing, and scaffolding are essential for building students’ understanding and their ability to transfer and apply knowledge and skills.
      • Teach the Course
        • Effective instructional strategies help students to develop mastery of course content and skills over time.
      • Assess Student Progress and Understanding
        • Learning requires time, practice, and regular feedback.
