Teaching Like an AP Reader

WEBINAR (57 minutes) recorded April 2, 2019


Have you ever wondered if an AP Reader collects "insider" tips while grading the AP Chemistry Exams? In this webinar, an experienced AP Reader and Table Leader shares tips that she has gathered during years of participation in the annual AP Reading. After scoring thousands of exams, some patterns emerge that help us realize student misconceptions when we least expect them. Dusty Carroll highlights several places throughout the AP Chemistry curriculum where simple changes in teaching focus can help to increase student understanding, leading to higher AP Exam scores. Dusty will talk about sections of the five AP Exam questions included in the sidebar. Please download them before the webinar if you would like to have a better look at the accepted answers.
