An AP English Language instructor had this to say about this year’s APSI:

“I believe that the AP training is some of the best professional development available. The classes usually have great suggestions for improving critical thinking skills, and many of the suggestions can be implemented in more classes than just an AP class. I use AP techniques in just about everything that I teach.”

Definitions – please read carefully.
