The Institute for Computing Education (ICE) is proud to host an Advanced Placement Computer Science A workshop on Friday November 19th, 2010 from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm at GA Tech. The workshop will take place in the College of Computing, room 345. Teachers must attend the entire workshop and do 2 hours of additional work on JavaBat.com or on the AP database to get 1 PLU. All teachers must register at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9DPLS6M. Georgia public school teachers must also register at http://www.ctaern.org for workshop CTAERN3081. The registration deadline is November 11, 2010.

This workshop is for teachers who are currently teaching AP CS A. It will help you prepare your students for the AP CS A exam. Teachers will gain hands-on experience with GridWorld. They will do exercises with 2-dimensional arrays. They will learn about resources that they can use to help prepare their students for the exam. We will also cover how to teach difficult concepts like inheritance, abstract classes, polymorphism, recursion, and sorting.

This workshop is free for Georgia teachers. Thanks to our National Science Foundation grants we can also cover the cost of a substitute. If you live > 30 miles from Georgia Tech we will pay for your hotel for Thursday night (2 teachers per room), Thursday night dinner, and Friday breakfast. If you would prefer a private room you can pay 1/2 the hotel cost. We will cover parking for Georgia teachers who stay at the hotel and reimburse parking for Georgia teachers who do not stay at the hotel. We will pay for lunch for all teachers. Space is limited to 30.

Please bring a laptop if you have one, or notify us if you need to borrow a laptop.
