Providing a NEW Opportunity for Affordable and Accessible Summer PD

by John Moscatiello

Since we started Marco Learning, we’ve been hearing from hundreds of AP® teachers across the country that they want professional development that is effective and that works with their schedules. Unfortunately, the professional development that is currently available for AP® teachers, AP® Summer Institutes (APSIs), are often expensive and inconvenient. For working parents, driving 6 hours and staying in a hotel for an entire week is not a viable option, especially during the summer.

That’s why we created online professional development workshops that are less expensive and more convenient than in-person PD. Teachers can now learn at home from our team of master AP® teachers and get practical resources that can help them and their students all year long.

At Marco Learning, we understand how challenging it is to teach AP® courses and help students succeed on AP® exams. Our workshops focus on more than just curriculum development or test preparation. We focus on a wide range of topics, including time-saving strategies for grading, practical techniques for classroom management, and life-work balance throughout the year. Our workshops also come with access to original, valuable resources, including comprehensive lesson plans, study guides, free response questions, and practice tests. Teachers will not only receive these resources as part of their enrollment, but also learn how to use them most effectively in their classroom.

Professional development shouldn’t stop after the workshops are over. Teachers need support and resources all year long. Because of that, Marco Learning is also offering a combined discount on our AP® Summer Workshops and our AP® Teacher Support Program. AP® Teacher Support provides teachers with ongoing mentor sessions, new lesson plans and resources posted each month through the school year, and free access to our AP® Student Course.

For summer 2020, 3-day workshops will be offered in 5 subjects: AP® English Language, AP® English Literature, AP® U.S. History, AP® European History, and AP® U.S. Government and Politics. Schedules and topics that will be reviewed are now posted as well. Workshops will be taught by our team of experts including Tom Richey, Alayna Vernon, and more.

Purchase orders are accepted, and participation certificates are also available.

Note: Marco Learning’s AP® Summer Workshops are not an official AP® Summer Institute approved by the College Board, which is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, this product.
