College Board Seeks Readers for Its Advanced Placement Program
The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program is recruiting high school teachers and college faculty to serve as readers for AP Human Geography at the June 2015 on-site reading event. Readers will evaluate and score AP students’ test responses ensuring that high school students receive AP grades that accurately reflect college-level achievement in a specified discipline.
AP Reader eligibility requirements:
College-Level Faculty — AP Readers from colleges and universities must be active faculty members and have taught at least one semester of a comparable AP course – as described in the AP Course Description – within the past three years.
High School Teachers — AP Readers from secondary schools must currently teach the AP course in a face-to-face classroom setting and have at least three years’ experience teaching it – unless:
- the AP course is new – then teachers must demonstrate comparable expertise and teaching experience
- the AP course is an online AP course taught in a virtual classroom – then teachers must have at least three years’ experience in teaching the course in a face-to-face classroom setting.
Please note, applicants are not guaranteed an invitation to this year or future readings. The AP reading is an opportunity for professional development and friendship with fellow college faculty, as well as high school teachers who are passionate about teaching and learning in AP Human Geography.
The next reading dates in 2015 are June 2-8, and will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio. The College Board also seeks readers for subsequent events.
