Join the third annual Smedes AP Environmental Science workshop for a four-day exploration of building class culture, flipping instruction, lab experiences, FRQ writing strategies, exam prep, and building community partnerships!

Check out some of the feedback from last year's participants:

"This was by far the best professional development I have ever had (in 22 years). It truly helped me plan my entire year and gain a solid grasp on various method to use as I teach APES. We had teachers with various years of experience teaching APES and we all seemed to get so much from Jordan's facilitation and each other. At the end of the last day several of us said we were disappointed it was over. I wrote in my professional development reflection that this workshop was transformative because it was. If only all workshops were this valuable. I can not recommend this workshop enough!"

"I was always scared of implementing a flipped classroom. With this workshop, I overcame this problem. I have never been able to accomplish so much practice with my students before. My students are always scoring high on any practice test that I have given to them so far. Everything works great. I think this is a workshop that I can and will do it every year."

This workshop will be hosted on Zoom and be structured in much the same way that I structure my own classes with my APES students: short periods of direct presentation, followed with lots of time for questions, collaboration, and opportunities to apply the concepts and resources I share to your own course.

My goal is for you to leave with a library of all the content and lab resources you need for the upcoming year, as well as a clear outline for your course that incorporates the cultural and instructional practices covered in this workshop. 

In addition, participants will have a 1-on-1 follow up meeting after the conference so they can ask questions when they're closer to planning or starting the start of their school year. The group will also reconnect via Zoom periodically throughout the year to share what's worked well and support one another.

This session will be limited to 20 participants. If this session fills up, an asynchronous option may be offered.

The Zoom link and workshop resources will be emailed out two weeks before the workshop begins.

If your school cannot pay for this workshop with a credit card and needs to pay with a purchase order or if you have any questions, please email me! (apesvseverbody@gmail.com)
