  • opening presentation 15 min panal identify 5 min panal discussion 30 min open questions 10 min
  • mission Established What we do
  • Supporting Stats how many- who passed unable to get accurate stats at this time due to confidentiality issues and that the grades are reported by College Board to the local school. Pilot-ap micro/macro(4) ap gov(11) 15 enrollment Pilot was only one semester started spring 2001 12 ap courses 2001-2002 ( First full year) of those 12, 9 were full year and 3 were semester (total enrollment in AP Courses = 37) 2004-2005 – 18 AP courses (13 full year -5 smester) 225 enrollments.
  • While our courses do have some basic chat or text messaging capabilities, teachers often discover that their students are already using popular Internet chat tools. If that is the case, teachers will use those as a means to informally communicate with their students in an unplanned manner.
  • Assignments and projects – (higher order assingments and group project work – might make a sentence or two about that) Dropbox – just simple statement that it’s a place for assignments to be submitted that doesn’t go through email Introduce the panel idea - We will be presenting how we have implemented the ap course Using the student perspective to serve as example
  • Our students are past completers of an online AP course and/or are currently enrolled in one this year. we will then present the panal who will identify themselves and give a short description of their experience with AP and IVHS. A list of questions will be asked by me or sara or mike for the panal to reply.  open questions will be addressed in the final few minutes of the presentation. Panel discussion questions Did you take more than one AP course online? How were they different? Did you take an AP course that was not online? How was it different than the online course? Was your online AP course monitored in any way? – classes, essays, tests. How and where was the AP Test administered. Do you prefer one type of class (online v f2f) over another? Why? What did you find most appealing? What did you find most difficult? Did you find group work bothersome? Did you find the free scheduling to be advantageous or not? Why? Were you able to communicate with your classmates? Was your class monitored at your home school? How much work did you put into the class after school? (assuming you had time to work on the class during regular school hours) Did you have any technological problems? Did you find the course content adequate? What assignments did you like best? What assignments did you like least?
  • Might be a nice place to mention the partnership between isu – imsa – etc -
