These College Board AP® Workshops will focus on providing both new and experienced AP teachers with in-depth explorations of specific AP course topics. For NCSS the workshops offer instructional activities designed to increase student engagement with AP courses. Pre-AP workshops are designed to help teachers and school administrators better understand specific instructional strategies that will support student success in college-level courses such as AP. All AP and Pre-AP workshops are presented by certified AP consultants. Educators attending AP and Pre-AP workshops may be eligible for continuing education credits..

AP workshop participants must register for the NCSS Annual Conference to take advantage of these resources, at a reduced rate.
