We will highlight the new 2019-20 AP resources that will help you plan and focus instruction on where your students need additional practice.  In a hands-on, educator-to-educator training session, AP science participants will also work through classroom strategies and emphasize specific science practices as follows:

  •  AP Biology - Statistical Tests and Data Analysis along with Argumentation
  • AP Chemistry - Model Analysis and Argumentation
  • AP Environmental Science - Mathematical Routines and Environmental Solutions

The AP-TIP IN Fall Conference will highlight the new 2019-20 AP resources (e.g. Course and Exam Description guides, web-based classroom tools, revised analytical scoring rubric) that will help you plan and focus instruction on where your students need additional practice.  In addition, the English sections will feature the following topics:
