World History

This weeklong workshop is designed to give the teacher new to the course a sense of pace and organization while offering the teacher who is a veteran to this program A sense of the dramatic changes presented by the new format.  To do this, there will be an emphasis on lesson plans, essay preparation and evaluation, multiple choice decoding tactics, review suggestions, and strategies to keep students excited about the course.  Besides several take-away sample texts, participants will also be provided with a DVD that has scores of tried-and-true lesson plans, a 330-page AP level test bank, and dozens of power points that demonstrate essay writing techniques.  Participants will leave this workshop with an arsenal of lesson-ready teaching ideas.
