Pre-AP National Faculty Application
Pre-AP National Faculty Application 2020-21
Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Pre-AP National Faculty. Please review the information and eligibility requirements below before you begin the application.
About the Endorsement
Educators who earn a Pre-AP National Faculty endorsement will be tapped to facilitate Pre-AP professional learning experiences for The College Board across the United States and the world.
The ideal candidate has experience teaching in middle and/or high school, a record of success in his/her own classroom, believes all students should have access to Pre-AP courses, and has a passion for working with and developing fellow educators through professional learning.
About Pre-AP Professional Learning
Pre-AP readiness workshops are designed to equip middle and high school educators with time-tested strategies to prepare their students for Pre-AP, AP, and other college-level coursework. These workshops focus on developing foundational knowledge and skills to support students in college and career readiness. The Pre-AP readiness workshops are also a great way to help build readiness for future Pre-AP teachers and those interested in learning more about the content, design, and pedagogy of the new College Board Pre-AP Courses.
These interactive and immersive one-day workshops will cover a variety of topics:
- Instructional routines and shifts of the Pre-AP classroom
- Engaging students in higher-order thinking and analysis
- Analyzing student work and differentiating instruction
- Interdisciplinary instructional strategies and routines
Pre-AP Summer Institutes are four-day collaborative experiences that empower participants to begin to prepare and plan for their Pre-AP course. Teachers explore course materials and experience model lessons from the student’s point of view. They also work with peers to begin to plan and build their own course materials, so they are ready on day one of instruction. Pre-AP Summer Institutes are only available to teachers whose schools have purchased Pre-AP Courses.
- I have been a K-12 educator for at least 3 full years.
- I am able to reserve at least 4 weeks of availability over the summer (May - August) and one day per semester during the school year (September-April) to facilitate Pre-AP workshops, should I become an endorsed consultant.
- I am available to attend the Pre-AP Faculty Institute May 15-17, 2020.
