AP® Art History

The agenda for this year’s AP Summer Institute in art history will be designed to both prepare teachers who are new to teaching the course content, including upcoming changes to the AP curriculum effective in the fall 2019, and to assist experienced teachers with implementing teaching strategies to effectively address learning objectives. Teachers will be provided with materials such as powerpoints and sample exams to assist them in teaching the course. For the benefit of returning teachers, the agenda will address works and themes not covered the year before.

Time may be allotted for a trip to a nearby museum to view and analyze works that are similar to in the AP Art History course description.
