Baylor to Host Advanced Placement Summer Institute

June 17, 1998

Baylor University will host the Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institute for high school AP instructors from June 21-26.

Approximately 150 teachers are expected to attend.

The institute is designed to train those who teach high school College Board Advanced Placement courses. This year's program will focus on U.S. history, biology, pre-AP high school English, English language, English literature, calculus AB and Pre AP high school math.

With the AP program, high school students can pursue college-level studies while in secondary school and receive AP credit towards college requirements. These courses are also designed to improve their chances of being accepted into the college of their choice, to demonstrate scholarship on national and international academic levels and to make them eligible to earn AP Scholar Awards.

Baylor professors, lecturers and consultants trained by the College Board will lead the institute. Baylor faculty participating this year will be Dr. Jerrie Callan, lecturer in English; Dr. Raymond Cannon, professor of mathematics; Dr. Kevin Gardner, assistant professor of English; Dr. Joan Supplee, associate professor of history and director of the Latin American Studies Program; and Dr. Daniel Wivagg, professor of biology and director of undergraduate studies in biology.

The total cost of registration is $325 for commuters and $550 for room and board.
