High-school teachers will hone skills at summer institute on campus
Once again this summer, high-school teachers will hone their talents during the 10th annual Advanced Placement Summer Institutes at Ohio University-Chillicothe. The workshops are designed to engage the teachers and give them the insights they need to be most effective in the classroom.
The weeklong workshops last from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily in Bennett Hall and Shoemaker Center. The dates for this summer’s workshops are:
English Language and Composition, June 23-27
Calculus, July 21-25
Biology, July 28-Aug. 31
The summer institute regularly draws teachers from the region, across Ohio and other states. Nearly 70 teachers participated in last summer’s workshop.
OU-C is one of only four sites in the state to offer the summer institute.
Eight teachers have signed up for the English workshop, including 2 local educators and one from Michigan.
The summer institute is mainly designed for educators who are preparing to teach the Advanced Placement classes at their high schools for the first time. Participants are introduced to teaching methods and curriculum content ideas specifically tailored to the teaching of Advanced Placement courses.
The training sessions include insights in the areas of course content, organization and methodology.
