Teaching AP is different than teaching other courses. Because of these differences, you need a specialized set of strategies both to build students’ capacity for this kind of thinking and to prepare students for the AP exam.

The strategies included in this book are designed specifically to be used in an AP course. They directly address the needs of AP students and take into account the nuances of an AP class. Although you can use these strategies successfully with any of your students, they are most effective in cultivating the kind of thinking demanded by AP coursework.

In this guide, Robyn R. Jackson & Dianne Hamilton take you step-by-step through the process of planning your AP Course for the year. Here, you’ll learn how to:

  • Fill-in missing background knowledge to help students engage in more rigorous material.
  • Help students acquire key soft skills by looking at ways to help students grasp new content and develop reading, writing, and study skills.
  • Help students manage the pacing of an AP Course by examining key time and task management strategies to teach students how to self-regulate their work.
  • Motivate reluctant learners by using growth oriented feedback and addressing students’ currency needs.
  • Prepare Students for the AP Exam by choosing from over 20 step-by-step outlines of specific instructional strategies to use in your AP subject.

You can use this guide to reflect, plan, and implement strategies that help your AP students actively participate and retain key course content, and manage the unique demands of AP coursework.
