Shawnee State University is offering the Advanced Placement Summer Institute program from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23.
The program is for teachers who currently teach or are planning to teach high school Advanced Placement classes.
Workshops include AP Biology, AP English Language and Composition, AP U.S. History and AP Spanish Language and Culture.
Consultants for this institute are Isidore Julien, AP Biology; Janice Neuleib, AP English Language; John Struck, AP History; and David Marlow, AP Spanish Language.
Participants will receive handouts and other materials for use in their AP classrooms as well as valuable networking connections with other teachers and expert consultants.
The AP Summer Institute provides two credit options for participants completing the Institute; 3.0 CEU credits and a Continuing Education Certificate of Completion. The College Board is authorized by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) to offer CEUs. IACET is an internationally recognized organization for standards and authorization for continuing education and training. Graduate credit is available through Shawnee State University, for an additional fee. Individuals may purchase up to two semester graduate credit hours for $150 per credit hour.
The registration fee includes materials and refreshments, along with a College Board certificate that will be awarded upon successful completion of the Institute.
Although the registration fee is $595, Scioto County teachers will have the benefit of only paying a $40 registration fee. This price is only available for Scioto County teachers with the Scioto Foundation paying a major portion of the fee.
APSI week is intense and the consultants cover an enormous amount of material in a very short amount of time. In order to be fully prepared to teach AP courses, participants will be required to attend all 32 hours of instruction. Only 30 participants will be permitted to participate in each workshop.
A continental breakfast and refreshments will be available daily but lunch will not be provided. For more information, contact University Outreach Services at (740) 351-3274.
