AP Summer Institute: Chemistry

The Hofstra University School of Education presents the Summer Institute for Advanced Placement Teachers. 

The Chemistry course surveys the basic structure and content necessary for teaching an Advanced Placement Chemistry course. Chemistry topics such as equilibrium, kinetics, and “how to” problem solving are presented. Textbooks and labs are addressed. Participants receive examples of past AP exams, appropriate tests, worksheets and lab experiments. This institute will provide an opportunity for high school AP Chemistry teachers to observe significant teaching demonstrations, perform experimental procedures using computer interfaced equipment, and discuss the methodology of converting typical chemistry labs into guided inquiry labs. An overview of the redesigned Advanced Placement Chemistry course will be provided, which has accomplished the following major changes: reduced content breadth to promote conceptual understanding; an explicit, comprehensive curriculum framework; at least six scientific inquiry and student-directed lab exercises with the development of student inquiry skills; articulated clear learning objectives; and a redesigned format for the AP Chemistry Exam to be implemented in May 2014. Participants will have the opportunity to perform several lab exercises that align with the College Board redesign. Best practices will be discussed. Information about the requirements for the AP Chemistry Course Audit for 2013-14 will be shared. Note that this course is a methodology class for teachers with experience teaching chemistry. Content for teaching will be provided for study in the evening
