These webinars are great opportunities to discuss a topic, learn how questions appear on the AP exam, learn how the questions are graded and scored as well as get strategies and tips on how to help students understand the topic and be successful on the AP exam.  There are opportunities for you to ask questions during the webinar and have your questions addressed.

All webinars will be recorded, so if you cannot attend live, you can still receive the link for the recorded session.  In order to receive the recorded session, you MUST register for the event.  After the event, an email with the link to the webinar will be sent to all who registered, as well as all the resources that were discussed and/or shared during the webinar.
