Workshops will focus on the test taking skills and strategies needed to succeed and are taught by very experienced AP teachers. Pre-Workshop assignments will be given. Some elite colleges will only give “credit” if you score a 4 or 5 on the AP test. Some elite schools will evaluate your AP test performance as a data point for admissions. Taking an AP class and scoring at a 2 or below does not substantiate a rigorous AP class even if you got a high grade in the class. Obviously, we cannot teach a year’s worth of curriculum in 4 hours, but we can help students know what to focus on and HOW to respond to DBQs and free response questions, timing, citing, and tips and traps for completing the multiple choice section. These tests can be quite long, up to 3 hours a piece.
