CSUS to Hold Advanced
Placement Workshops

California State University, Sacramento will hold its first advanced placement workshops this summer, training teachers from throughout the state how to begin or improve the challenging advanced placement curriculum at their schools.

The intense, weeklong program begins June 26.

Advanced placement (AP) courses are offered in many high schools to students who excel in a particular subject. After completing the course, students may earn college credit by passing the College Board's AP exam.

During the workshop both new and experienced teachers will receive hands-on lessons on AP curriculum, teaching strategies and the AP exams. They will also have time to share ideas and teaching strategies with one another.

All workshop instructors will be College Board certified teachers who have taught AP classes and read for AP exams. Special presentations will be made by a variety of academic, government and business professionals.

State funding is available to help eligible teachers attend the workshops. For more information about the program call Mary Bellefleur at (916) 278-4433 ext. 118, or e-mail her at bellefleurml@csus.edu
