NMSU College of Education hosts the Advanced Placement Summer Institute

New Mexico State University's College of Education will team up with New Mexico Highlands University to hold the 2009 Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI) on the NMSU campus.

The week-long event will begin June 8 with a kickoff luncheon at noon and will train teachers in preparing AP classes for middle schools and high schools throughout the region. The event will be held in Corbett Center Student Union and ends June 12. The APSI is free for teachers to attend.

"This is an excellent opportunity for teachers to train in AP courses," said Michelle Saenz, program coordinator for the Alliance for Advancement of Teaching and Learning. "The goal is to prepare teachers so that they can provide courses in middle and high schools throughout southern New Mexico."

This summer the institute will have six sessions: AP Biology, AP Spanish Literature, AP Spanish Language, AP English Language and Literature, AP English (high school) and pre-AP Math for middle school.

The College of Education's Alliance for Advancement of Teaching and Learning has an on-going partnership with New Mexico Highlands University and the Public Education Department of New Mexico to hold the summer institute. This summer's event will be the third time it has been held at NMSU.
