New Mexico State University to host Advanced Placement Summer Institute

Teachers from across the nation will gather at New Mexico State University for the Advanced Placement Summer Institute June 13-17 in Las Cruces.

This is the fifth year the institute has been held. About 200 teachers from as far away as Alaska will participate in sessions held in O'Donnell Hall and various other buildings on the NMSU campus.

During the event, educators will receive training from consultants in the areas of AP calculus, AP chemistry, AP English language and composition, AP English literature and composition, AP German language, AP human geography, AP U.S. history, Pre-AP English and Pre-AP U.S. history. The training allows the teachers to offer the courses to high school students at their respective high schools.

The consultants are hired through the College Board, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping students receive access to higher education and serving the education community.

The institute is a collaboration between NMSU's College of Education, Alliance for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, New Mexico Highlands University and the Public Education Department.
