This workshop for new and experienced teachers will review materials, course outlines, content-related handouts, student samples, and scoring guidelines (including the new analytical scoring guide) that focus on pedagogical techniques and content-specific strategies that you can use in the classroom.

After attending this workshop, you will be able to:
Align instruction with the goals of the AP English Literature and Composition course.
Identify the skills and knowledge that the exam will assess, and identify the tasks and materials for which students might need more preparation.
Draft a syllabus that meets the curricular requirements for the course.
Make equitable access a guiding principle in designing instruction.
