The AP Teacher Training Institute (APTTI) provides the teacher interested in the Advanced Placement® Program comprehensive preparation for developing and teaching an AP course. In addition to discussing questions about AP subject-area content, teachers will receive an overview of the Advanced Placement® Program.

Each workshop includes:

  • preparation of course syllabi and lesson plans;
  • examples of classroom materials applicable to the particular AP® subject area;
  • practical information about program implementation (student selection, budget, and helping students succeed on the AP® Examination);
  • preparation for the new College Board Audit, required for every AP teacher.

"Even if you are not going to teach an AP class, the content and methods from the APTTI at the Belin-Blank Center open up a myriad of teaching possibilities. I admit it---I was so energized about content after attending APTTI!!"

– Jill Schany, APTTI participant from Emmetsburg High School
