The AP Physics 1 & 2 Summer Institute is designed to help teachers build the foundation for a successful AP Physics program.
Emphasis will be placed on the rigor of the material that students need to be successful on the AP Physics 1 & 2 exam. A significant amount of time will be spent addressing how AP Physics is an adjustment in not just what we teach, but how we teach.
Laboratory investigations will be incorporated throughout the workshop, with special emphasis on transitioning your laboratory into a guided-inquiry based program. We will also focus on the exam and how best to prepare your students for it. We will review the requirements for the course audit and the syllabus requirements.
Time will be allotted for best practices and for sharing ideas as a group.
As an AP Physics 1 & 2 workshop, options will be presented during each activity to help prepare you to teach either or both courses. So if you teach AP Physics 1, 2, or both, this workshop is for you!
