What resources do we need to collect to best help design AP curriculum? Texts? Test practice? Prompts? Directory of classes for interpersonal exchanges?

(@jeanrueckert) Please refer to my developing notes from my AP Institute in our shared archive in GoogleDrive.  I've created a new folder, "AP Resources" and placed Jordan's document in there, as well.  I would highly recommend participating in an AP institute with a solid reputations, if you never have.  You'll walk out with numerous resources and ideas from experienced teachers who are often readers themselves.  This was my second, and I wasn't disappointed (at LaSalle University first, and this summer at Carleton College in MN).  I'm learning that not all are created 'equal'.


(@secottrell) I have just had my syllabus authorized by the College Board and blogged about it here.  You can also read and comment on the list of tips I got from an AP French teacher and blogged about here.


(@SraWitten) I just uploaded a document shared at AATSP last summer(Experiencias Tematicas). I have used it to have students do homework with current events. They have to do one category every month, which included finding six articles the chosen Unit Theme and then choosing one to write an essay about answering the given questions.
