Winthrop University, with funding from the South Carolina Department of Education, is pleased to offer summer institutes for new and/or experienced AP United States History and AP World History teachers. The institutes will allow teachers to explore in more depth the AP United States or World History course, engage in specialized study for one of these courses, and earn 3 graduate United States or World History education credits.
Please note that due to overwhelming interest in the AP World and US History Summer Institutes, any new applicants as of June 5, 2014 will be placed on a waiting list. We will notify each applicant individually if any space becomes available.
The course will meet on Winthrop's campus June 23-26, 2014. There will also be a portion of the course that will be offered online from June 26-July 3, 2014. Housing and meals will be available at an extra cost. More information about housing and meals will be available on this page in the next few weeks.
Course Fees are $200 and include:
3 graduate credits in United States or World History education coursework.
The purpose of the course is to strengthen teachers' knowledge of topics and themes on the AP United States and World History exams, and to provide guidance on creating or modifying a course that promotes student success. More information regarding the courses will be available on this page in the next few weeks.
Please remember to complete the registration survey to make sure that we have received all of the requested information on or before the registration due date for the AP History Institute. Last minute requests will be accommodated as we are able and should be directed to email@example.com.
