AP Summer Institutes provide teachers with an overview of the curriculum structure and content of the specific AP courses. Attention will be devoted to the development of AP curriculum, teaching strategies, and the relationship of the course to the AP Exam. These courses provide tremendous curriculum staff development opportunities for both new and experienced teachers. Through this training, the AP teacher will receive content, skills, and strategies to connect Florida students to college success particularly underrepresented and disadvantaged students. The Florida Partnership supports Florida's students, families, teachers and administrators as they prepare for and succeed in advanced college level courses.
