AP Summer Institute Physics and English I Composition Online Sessions
Complete Attendance not available before workshop starts.
Group synchronous meetings will give you the opportunity to get to know the other participants, share your best practices with them (and benefit from theirs) and will ideally lead to newfound friendships and professional networking that will extend well beyond the Institute itself. During group synchronous sessions I will also be able to provide you with essential content reinforcement and share a number of insights and teaching strategies to help maximize your and your students’ success in AP Physics 2, as well as provide participants the opportunity to share demonstrations and ideas with the rest of the group. One-on-one synchronous meetings will give me the opportunity to work more closely with you in order to answer your specific questions and try to meet your individual needs, as well as giving us the chance to get to know each other better! Asynchronous activities will consist of a range of activities selected to complement all of the above, and will give you the opportunity to direct your efforts where you most need to do so.
Advanced Placement Summer Institute course will focus on five elements: (a) with an eye on the Course and Examination Description, designing an effective English Language and Composition course with substantial, appropriate, and assessable learning goals; (b) teaching rhetorical analysis as the primary tool of critical reading; (c) teaching argumentation as the linchpin of academic writing at the post-secondary level; (d) teaching synthesis, the dominant task in post-secondary writing, as a combination of critical reading and argumentation; (e) by incorporating nonfiction prose and visual artifacts, in “conversation” with fiction, poetry, and drama, forging text-to-text connections.
