AP Annual Conference Submission
The 4,000 members of the online AP Macroeconomics and AP Microeconomics Teacher Communities share teaching tips and ideas on a daily basis. In this session, the moderator of the AP Economics Teacher Communities will share the most meaningful takeaways from recent years. Teacher Community discussions address how to teach the hardest concepts, how to prioritize the use of class time, where to find the best teaching materials, and how to clear common hurdles in an AP Economics teacher’s path: the first year, tough questions from students, final preparations for the exams, summer assignments, and so on. I will summarize the most pressing issues and detail the best approaches shared by master teachers from around the world. Active participation is welcome throughout the session. In the final 20 minutes, I will invite participants to share their own favorite solutions to common problems.
