      Art and Design - APSI @ Northeastern State University - Online
      Online
      Kathleen Blake, the instructor is a Reader for the AP Reading. The following is how we will adjust the course. Our scoring hours for the AP Reading are from 10 am to 7 pm. Last year we had varying times to choose from to participate, but this year, it appears that as long as we get in the correct amount of time each day within that 10-7pm time frame, we are OK. So, I believe on June 14th, I could meet with participants at 8:30 for 1.5 hours and have intros, and give an assignment that would also be an introductory assignment to the course. Then we would pick up again the following day, June 15th, for our normal 8:30-4:30 schedule, some of which will be synchronous and asynchronous. Although, on Friday, we could wrap up early to include Monday's time. I hope this makes sense. Also, I am working on tweaking/improving the schedule I used in 2020, based on the participants comments. And, I will include the full 30 hours for the APSI, of course! - Kathleen Blake This online AP Art and Design APSI will provide you with some of the tools and techniques for helping students acquire the skills needed to excel in AP Art and Design.

You’ll also learn about completing the digital activation process at the start of the school year that will help ensure that your students can register for AP portfolio submission by the new fall deadlines.
