This workshop will focus on bringing Pre-AP ideals into the concrete realities of public education.
Participants will practice and discuss Pre-AP strategies and inculcating Pre-AP skills in the classroom while meeting the unique and varied needs of middle school students. In addition, participants will learn how to accomplish these tasks without sacrificing content and apply teaching strategies in ways that make content coverage more effective.
