PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ART HISTORY CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2017.
Beginning, Intermediate, and Experienced AP* Teachers Combined
AP Art History teachers will engage in an exploration of various methods used to meet the goals of the AP Art History curriculum and prepare students for success on the AP Art History Exam.
There will be a close examination of the AP Art History course components: the Image Set, Big Ideas, Learning Objectives, as well as the Enduring Understanding and Essential Knowledge for each of the ten Content Areas. We will discuss developing a syllabus, resources, and pacing. Strategies will be shared for student recruitment and building support with parents and the school community. A close examination of the AP exam will include how it is structured, grading of the exam, and what students are expected to know and do on it. Instructional strategies for helping students develop an understanding of the discipline of art history, curriculum of the course, writing skills, and higher order thinking skills necessary for success in an AP Art History class and exam will be shared. Topics such as teaching research skills, incorporating primary and secondary sources beyond the text, analysis of form, function, content, and context will be explored through out the course of the APSI.
