Advanced Placement Summer Institute

Advanced Placement* Summer Institute


Southern Methodist University, in cooperation with The College Board, is pleased to offer an Advanced Placement Program* Summer Institute in 2014 (held at the SMU-in-Plano campus). New and experienced AP* and Pre-AP* teachers spend four days exploring the latest methods and curriculum topics in Advanced Placement Program* education. Participants conclude their Institute experience at SMU renewed in their enthusiasm for the AP Program* and equipped with new ideas and resource materials to use in their classrooms.
