CHS AP Teachers Present at Annual AP Conference
CHS faculty members Robin Deck, AP American History teacher, and Christy Kessler, AP World History teacher, presented at the 2013 annual AP conference held in Las Vegas from July 19 through the 21.
Deck and Kessler gave two presentations throughout the conference geared for pre-AP teachers looking to incorporate different skills into their classrooms. The first presentation was on using Document labs to improve students ability to interpret different media sources, and the second presentation was on creating a cross-curriculum writing rubric to improve writing scores in each department.
While at the conference, Deck and Kessler were also able to attend presentations where they were able to learn about improving AP-style reading and writing strategies in the classroom.
The conference brings together educators from around the country who are teaching various different AP courses, as well as administrators looking to start AP programs at their schools.
