Session 502: Advanced Placement Courses: The Upcoming Revisions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Between 2012 and 2015, the College Board is redesigning AP tests in biology, chemistry, and physics (among other subjects) with the hope of allowing for more in-depth classroom instruction and student critical and analytical thinking.  The College Board offers a range of information, workshops, and resources for teachers and students about the changes to the tests and how they might impact classroom instruction.  In this workshop, select course authors, teachers, and College Board professionals will provide an overview of the revisions to the AP curricula.
