Dutch Fork Teachers Attending AP Reading Sessions!

At Dutch Fork High School, the Advanced Placement® Program is growing by leaps and bounds each year. A large part of that success is attributed to the growth and development of teachers in those specific content areas. Each June, AP teachers and college faculty members from all across the country assemble to evaluate and score the free-response sections of the AP exams. Last year, over 11,000 AP teachers were selected to become readers. Through this experience, teachers are able to:
  1. Exchange ideas with other teachers and AP Development committee members
  2. Collaborate with teachers from all across the country
  3. Score the exam responses from AP high school students
  4. Practice how to use a rubric consistently, which provides valuable knowledge for scoring their own students' essays
It is an annual tradition that Dutch Fork teachers are among the fortunate ones that are selected. This year, we have six teachers that have been selected by the CollegeBoard® to be readers and table leaders. They are as follows:

Stephen Cox -  AP World History "Table Leader"
Rhoda Wilson - AP Statistics
Laurie Humphrey - AP Government and Politics "Table Leader"
Carol Jackson - AP English Literature and Composition
Regina Dilley - AP Human Geography
Robert Barron - AP United States History

We are extremely proud of these teachers as they are continuously working towards perfecting their instructional practices. As an end result, our scores will incrementally improve each year.
