Today I am heading over to Cincinatti, Ohio for the AP Reading session for AP Human Geography. I applied to be a reader for the exam and grade the student’s free response questions. I have a good friend that also does the reading every year and he says that it is the best professional development that he has ever done. I am thrilled to have been selected and to partake in the process. It is to be held June 1st-9th, which means that I am missing my last week of school with my students and final exams. I have never done so much prepping in my life yesterday. I do not like being out of my classroom and leaving for the last week of school was a tough decision, but I think that my future students will benefit greatly from it.
I hope to get a lot of great ideas from the other geography teachers and professors that I will meet and make use of my iPad this week. THere’s nothing like a huge brainstorming session before the book-writing storm 🙂
