The A+ College Ready Fall Conference for Advanced Placement teachers is designed to strengthen content knowledge and to expand access to instructional strategies and resources for both novice and experienced AP teachers. Each conference will feature nationally recognized AP consultants as well as successful Alabama practitioners. In addition to high quality teaching and learning, participants will have the opportunity to network with AP colleagues from all over the state.
This year’s Computer Science Conference will feature three learning tracks: The new Code.org teachers, trained in the summer of 2018, will continue their learning in one track. There will also be a track designed for second and third year AP Computer Science Principles teachers and a track for teachers beginning, or considering, teaching AP Computer Science A.
The conference will begin on October 5th at 12:00 pm and end at 4:30 pm. The second day of the conference will begin at 8:30 am and end at 3:00 pm. Attendance at this workshop is an expectation for teachers who have signed a Letter of Agreement (LOA) with A+ College Ready for the 2018-19 school year.
