The purpose of this Summer Institute is to familiarize participants with the Physics 1 course and to offer guidance, strategies, and resources for successfully teaching this course.
An overview of the AP Physics 1 Curriculum Framework will be explored with an emphasis on preparing teachers for the audit and the focus on inquiry-based pedagogies. Another particular focus of this institute will be the developing of classroom material for Physics 1.
