AP Conferences at the MSiC focus on best practices in the AP classroom.  How can educators engage students in rich tasks without sacrificing content?  How can students be best prepared for their AP Exam?  Through engaging presenters, who are experts in their field and often AP Readers, educators come away from MSiC's AP Conferences with activities that deepen student thinking and make connections to real-world problem-solving, as well as a thorough understanding of the nature of the AP Exam itself and how to support student success.
