Biology
“Couldn’t teach the new curriculum rearrangement without this workshop.”
“By far, the most informative teacher development conference I have been to. Very crucial for all the
new AP Biology changes. Maureen is great.”
“I will redesign my AP Bio Labs to be more inquiry based and will rewrite curriculum to match College
Board’s new curriculum.”
“The instructor helped to build confidence and confirmed that I am already doing a lot of great things
in my AP course.”
“I plan on spending time reorganizing my course and how I teach. The emphasis on inquiry will
become more central in my approach to teaching. Please continue to offer the AP Summer
Institutes.”
English Literature and Composition
“Really gained ideas for teaching poetry and analysis in class, along with a formalist approach to short,
close readings for analysis.”
“My week at the institute was enjoyable, well organized, and the IU Directors were friendly. Thanks
for recruiting high quality instructors.”
Calculus
“Mr. White is a fantastic instructor with an abundance of valuable ideas.”
“The graphing calculator presentations were well done.”
“This was amazing. I know I have a lot of work to do, but I can see so many ways I can improve my
teaching.”
“I would love to have Mike White spend more time with me and my entire math department.”
English Language and Composition
“Vincent stuck to the time, giving us all we asked for, was flexible with what we needed, and was
incredibly generous with ALL – and his time.
“Bring him back.”
US History
“Edmund Austin - excellent presentations and amazing presenter.”
“Ed was very knowledgeable and offered practical solutions and suggestions to help students be
successful in AP.”
“Awesome! I have been teaching for 25 years and got so much out of this seminar.”
Statistics
“I really enjoyed and learned more about linear regression, the connections of the (x 2) chi-square test
and matrices, and also simulations.”
“Thanks to Bobbie, Luann and Kenn for a great week.”
“Would like a second Statistics class to this one.”
