Professional Development

Get in touch with Dr. Suzanne Acord to explore our extensive professional development opportunities. Advanced Placement Social Studies and Art teachers attend national institutes, monthly PLCs, peer observations, and HISD conferences to hone their content knowledge and pedagogy. Our next PLC will take place on October 19th, 2018.

AP Resources

Our curriculum specialists can help you identify relevant and meaningful resources for your classes. Reach out to discuss AP resources at a department meeting, during your prep time, or at a time that is convenient for you. We are currently exploring how to utilize Minecraft Education in our Pre-AP and AP courses.
